For a dream sequence, cinematographer Thomas Burstyn
came up with the idea of having two cameras - one loaded with color film, the other with infrared black & white - shoot the exact same image, and then combining them in post-production. Rental house Clairmont Camera designed and built a rig that positioned one camera above the other and used mirrors to correctly align their respective images. This became known as the "Crazy Horse" or "Over/Under" rig, and is still available for rental at Keslow Camera (which purchased Clairmont in 2017). See more
George Armstrong Custer was not shot at the river. His wound to the chest would've been fatal. He was found at the top of the knoll on Last Stand Hill with shell casings from his rifle found under his body. His head wound either came first, which matches the account of Private Jacob Adams, who claimed that there was blood coming from the head and none from the chest, or the chest wound was first and the head wound could've been a post-mortem Cou DE Grace delivered by his brother Tom, or by Lt. W.W. Cooke near the end of the battle. See more
