The film was [[TheRemake remade]] in 1966 by director Gavin Douglas, with Alex Cord replacing Wayne as the Ringo Kid, Music/BingCrosby as Doc Boone, [[Film/TheLongestDay Red Buttons]] as Peacock, [[Series/TheGirlFromUNCLE Stephanie Powers]] as Mrs. Mallory, Mike Connors as Hatfield, Robert Cummings as Gatewood, Van Heflin as Curley, [[Film/DrStrangelove Slim]] [[Film/BlazingSaddles Pickens]] as Buck, and Ann-Margret as Dallas. Despite an improved script (the Gatewood subplot is particularly satisfyingly tied in to the Ringo plot, with [[Film/TheGreatRace Keenan]] [[WesternAnimation/SantaClausIsCominToTown Wynn]]'s delightfully nasty Luke Plummer being fatally hired by the defaulting banker) and a remarkably strong showing by Crosby, the film is killed dead by a leaden performance by Cord. Ultimately the most memorable aspects of this remake are the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arUlPqXDnE0 portraits done of the cast in-character]] by NormanRockwell.

** Also the horses were probably the most valuable thing (to the Indians) on the stage. They didn't now about the stolen money and probably didn't know how many women were there. So if you kill the horses, all you get is the chance to rape and murder.

* OneBulletLeft: Hatfield saves his last bullet to spare Mrs. Mallory "a fate worse than death". There's another woman on the coach but she's a prostitute so he doesn't seem to care. [[spoiler:He's just about to pull the trigger when he's shot and mortally wounded, sparing her. They are saved by the calvary moments later]].

The story involves a disparate group of travelers--a prostitute (Claire Trevor), an alcoholic doctor (veteran character actor Thomas Mitchell), a pregnant army wife, a fugitive under arrest (Wayne), and others--who all wind up on the same stagecoach traveling from Tonto, Arizona Territory to Lordsburg, New Mexico Territory. Besides having their own secrets, burdens, and crimes to deal with, they have to worry about Geronimo and the Apaches, who are on the warpath.

* TakeThat: Gatewood procalims that America should have a businessman for president. At the time, Herbert Hoover, a businessman, was president. This was a deliberate dig by Creator/JohnFord.
