Since there is no "Errors in astronomy" category, I guess this goes here. When Gregory Harrison (Cherry Valance) is wooing Laura Johnson (Kate) at night under a tree with a canopy you couldn't possibly see through, while she's holding a child, and she says she has to go, and he points out the big dipper to her to get her to stay. But the view shows a thick patch of stars with no pattern. Not the Big Dipper, which is in a northern region with much fewer stars where it's easily visible year-round if it's view-able. See more »

This Movie Re-Make Should Have Never Been Made!
14 May 2008 | by wgieSee all my reviews

Watch the original and don't waste you time on this flick. Wayne and Clift are perfectly cast, and while I always enjoyed James Arness as Marshall Dillon...he is not right for this movie. This movie re-make should have never been made. On a lighter note, I remember actor Victor Mature was offered the role played by John Wayne in the original film by actor Sylvester Stallone who was intending to play the Montgomery Clift role in the film. Mature's response was "I'll play his (Stallone's) mother for the right money!" Fortunately, somebody got this one right...and didn't to it. Truth is some classics are best served by just leaving them alone.
