Trivia

Doc Boone (Bing Crosby) drinks coffee with a handful of salt in it. The salt is intended to make him vomit and get rid of any alcohol still in his stomach so that he can sober up faster. See more »

Goofs

During the Indian attack when the view is from above and the camera pans to a helicopter shot, you can see the shadow of the helicopter briefly at the top of the screen, behind the horseback riders. This occurs around 1h29m into the film on some prints. See more »

artistic value worth watching
11 June 2005 | by hoosier1-1See all my reviews

I saw this movie in 1966 when it was released, and It was one of the few movies that left an impression on me all these years for several reasons. I feel the aesthetics of this movie make it worth watching. The artwork of Norman Rockwell alone is unforgettable. The music is very appropriate for the movie, not overwhelming but rustic and timed well. The scenes that were shot on location are truly breathtaking. You wont find many mattes or computer digitized images in this movie, Forget about the plot, just enjoy the artwork. But I still feel There are a few good lines in the movie. Some are even worth including in ones vocabulary.
