According to myth, Dennis Hopper required 85 retakes for one scene, causing director Henry Hathaway
to yell at him, "You'll never work in this town again!" and that it was ten years before Hopper
obtained another major role.
Don Murray, however, has stated that this never occurred, and in fact,
Hopper worked steadily through the 1960s, including twice more with Hathaway:
The Sons of Katie Elder (1965) and True Grit (1969).
Although the story takes place in the Old West of the 19th Century, Diane Varsi sports an up-to-the-minute 1958 D.A. hairstyle.
Indians took both saddle horses, but later Tod rides into Magdalena or Socorro, with Carmody's horse.
