Trivia

Upton county, where this story takes place, is approximately 100 miles due west of San Angelo. The actual Upton city, which is east of Austin, is an unincorporated community - little more than a crossroads out in the country. What is referred to as Upton city was an unofficial name. In 1911 it was given the name of Rankin, after local rancher Finis E. Rankin, who was born in 1856 and therefore about the same age as Tommy Lee Jones' character. Rankin was referred to as a rancher but he was also in charge of the bank. In reality, Rankin received his 640 acre grant in 1911 but with a bit of imagination and for all practical purposes, the rancher / banker played by Wilford Brimley is the same fellow as Rankin.

Goofs

Almost all of the costumes are obviously brand-new, with no attempt to age them. This is particularly noticeable in the first scene, with the close-up shot of the chaps, which had supposedly had at least two years' use. See more »

Quotes

Hewey Calloway: Biscuit, I'm tired of this cowology. I'm tired of these mountains. And if you won't take it the wrong way, I'd just as soon talk with somebody can talk back every once in a while - you ain't said nothin' in two years.
