For authenticity, the producers decided to use real ranch horses in the movie. When the effect of bullets hit below Gus's horse, the response was genuine, and Robert Duvall was bucked off. Because it lent itself to the authenticity everyone desired, the cameras continued rolling, and the shot was kept in the final cut. See more »

The opening credits are displayed over a series of black-and-white photographs taken from scenes in the movie. The very last on then turns to color and becomes the first scene of each episode. The end credits are displayed over a picture of a dove silhouette on a piece of wood. See more »
The 2008 DVD/Blu-Ray release was cropped to a 16:9 aspect ratio, and enhanced for viewing on widescreen televisions. These versions were also remastered, and the picture quality is superior to the original DVD release. See more »
In my opinion, this is the best motion picture of all time! While it's a mini-series, I believe it matches up favorably (and surpasses) the best movies...Shawshank Redemption, Seven Samurai, Star Wars, Citizen Kane, and so on. The story, sets, acting, character development, music,....all amazing.
The production is as if you were plopped on a horse in the middle of a cattle drive in the old American West. Every detail was as if it was 1880...including dialogue, character depth...and the utter chaos and randomness of life.
While there are a couple special effects that might have been a little better, this work of art adds to life. When you have a block of time, watch it.
