Trivia Because of Chief Dan George's age, he would have trouble remembering his lines so during takes, Clint Eastwood would begin to mouth his lines without realizing it and had to be told to stop because it would ruin the take. In a featurette on the DVD about making the film, Eastwood says he'd have people drill Dan George on his lines, but when it came time to shoot the scene, he'd say "Chief, just forget about the lines - tell me the story about the man who rode over the hill." And Dan George, who was apparently a natural storyteller would tell the story and it would be perfect. See more »
