At the James' farm, Milford kills a gila monster. The gila monster is found only in the deserts of the American southwest and northwest Mexico. Jesse James's farm was in Missouri (in both the film and real life). See more »

In various literary sources (Citadel press' "The Films of Gary Cooper" for one), both Gene Autry and James Garner are quoted making cameo appearances in the film, but neither is to be found in the present US video version. See more »
This movie was tied up for years due to royalty rights since 11 cowboy stars of the late '50s appear in cameos helping Bob Hope in the final shootout. Note that Gene Autry and James Garner do not appear in the current product, though they were in the original.
Then there is an owl-eyed kid named Harry Truman playing the piano. Bob clubs a gila monster ("The mice sure grow big around here"), then realizes he used a rattlesnake.
I've shown this tape to many people, and all agree it's the best Bob Hope movie and one of the funniest movies they've ever seen.
