* ActorAllusion: Creator/HenryFonda did the same slightly awkward high-stepping dance in his earlier appearance for Creator/JohnFord, ''Film/YoungMrLincoln''. Ford deliberately included the dance number again because "he thought it would make a good shot."

* PrimaDonnaDirector: The only reported instance of Creator/JohnFord's famous temper flaring up during the writing phase involved the scene where Wyatt rides out after Doc to accuse him of killing his brother. Fox studio chief Darryl F. Zanuck suggested Ford have Doc on his horse rather than riding shotgun on a stagecoach (as scripted and eventually filmed). Zanuck thought it would be better just to have the two men confront each other and made the mistake of noting that, with the stage driver present, the scene might feel too "cluttered." The remark launched Ford into a ten-minute tirade about his ability to direct scenes with any number of people in them that never felt cluttered. "He was volatile," Zanuck recalled. "He could be the nicest guy in the world and he could be the meanest. You never knew which was going to happen."
