Scott Glenn and Kevin Costner got along great during the filming. Glenn used to kid Costner by calling out to him "Hey movie star" as at that point Costner was little known and had not reached his star status yet. See more »
After saving the wagon trains money from the gang in the canyon, Emmet, Paden and Mal are sitting on horseback talking as the wagon train moves from right to left behind them. One wagon can be seen with the wagon tongue clearly broken and being dragged behind the lead team. The only way the team is attached to the wagon is by the reins in the drivers hands. See more »

I love this movie, so much that I finally got tired of renting it and bought a copy. I tell anyone who asks that it's "...the western for 12-year-old boys of all ages." I'd guess that women would enjoy it also, if for no other reason than the superb male cast. I can't think of a film which has a cast with greater depth. I love the humor woven through the episodes of action and buddyhood, and nearly fell out of my seat laughing when John Cleese first appeared on screen. His first line is an all-time great, right up there with Tommy Lee Jones' "My my, what a mess" in The Fugitive (I won't quote it, in case you haven't seen the film). If you want to be thoroughly entertained for a couple of hours, and don't require powerful social import in your viewing choices, I'd recommend Silverado strongly. Actually, the relationship of Danny Glover to the main protagonists IS socially important, so enjoy that too.
