Edit
Trivia When MGM producer Ira Steiner took Elmore Leonard's novel to Lancaster, the actor agreed to co-produce and co-star as Tanner with Marlon Brando as Valdez, David Rayfiel as writer, and Sidney Pollak directing. After the picture was postponed to allow Lancaster to do "Airport," the actor decided he wanted to play the title role and engaged Roland Kibbee to rewrite the role for him. According to Lancaster's biographer Gary Fishgall, none of Rayfiel's writing was used although he received co-credit. See more »
Goofs At the end of the film, when Valdez is riding hidden between two horses, a wire is visible holding the horses' bridles together, so that they won't separate during Lancaster's close-up. See more »
