Trivia

Alan Jay Lerner micromanaged the production, overseeing filming and constantly countermanding Logan's decisions. This drove Joshua Logan, who suffered from bipolar disorder, to despair; he confided in film critic Rex Reed, "I don't know what the hell I'm doing here." See more »

Goofs

When the parson arrives in town he is riding up the main street and he stops a moment just before the huge banner that stretches across the street. He hears Atwell ask Mrs. Rumson how her husbands are which shocks him. He calls everyone animals and pagans but then they show him in the next shot as he's starts riding up the street again praying and the banner is now way behind him. See more »

Quotes

Ben Rumson: You mean to tell me you ain't never had a woman neither?
Horton: No, sir.
Ben Rumson: This is serious. You know you could go blind? Come here.
[to 'Rotten Luck' Willie]
Ben Rumson: Willie, if a young man was goin' trappin' for the first time and wanted a guide, somebody who would be patient with him and show him the way things are to be done; what kind of guide would you choose?
'Rotten Luck'Willie: [Thinking] Ah, that would be Gracie.

Alternate Versions

On its release to what were then called "neighborhood theatres" (i.e. theatres which showed films that had ended their first runs downtown), the film's running time was shortened by having three songs eliminated, "I Still See Elisa", "The First Thing You Know", and "Gold Fever". This left both Lee Marvin and Clint Eastwood with only one solo song each. The film was restored to its original length for its first television showing, and has remained that way ever since.

Clint CAN sing. Movie is a hoot.
18 December 1998 | by MaKochSee all my reviews

I once heard a critic state any movie where Clint Eastwood sings should be rated for violence. He must have never actually listened to this movie. Clint may not be the best voice in the cast but he is surely not the worst. As a young man he has a pleasant "everyman" kind of voice I ENJOY. And in addition to that this an outrageously funny and moving movie.
