Quotes from

Col. Tom Rossiter: You used to have ten fingers. Now you have nine. Tomorrow, you'll have eight. You stay stubborn, the day after that then you'll have seven. The day after that... it's up to you. You decide whether you want to end up with a pair of stumps... or lend us your talent. You decide.


Alvarez Kelly: God deliver me from dedicated men.


Alvarez Kelly: Now the main thing to remember is... cattle are like women. Sometimes you have to be firm with them. Sometimes you have to be gentle. And sometimes you have to give them a slap on the rump.

Facts about

Both William Holden and director Edward Dmytryk were concerned about the script of the film before production even began. At one point during filming, Holden, who was hung-over and dealing with an unruly horse, became angry and tried shoving the script up the horse's rear, yelling, "That's where it belongs!"
This was based upon the actual "Beefsteak Raid" of September 14-16, 1864.
While dining in Baton Rouge, William Holden and Richard Widmark ran into Steve McQueen, who was filming Nevada Smith in the same area. McQueen and Holden wound up drinking together the rest of the evening.
