Quotes from

William F. 'Buffalo Bill' Cody: When you do an Indian a favor, he never forgets it. But if you do him bad, he never forgets that either.


Sen. Frederici: Well, that's it! That's my letter you telling you I was coming. I mailed it a week before I left.
Sgt. Chips: That's nothing. Private Mulligan didn't get the letter with his reprieve until days after they hung him. Come to think of it, he never did get it.


Louisa Frederici Cody: What is she doing here all alone?
William F. 'Buffalo Bill' Cody: She's just old. When Indians get too old to travel, why they're left behind with a little food and fuel.
Louisa Frederici Cody: To die?
William F. 'Buffalo Bill' Cody: Yeah.
Louisa Frederici Cody: That's terrible! Can't we do something for her?
William F. 'Buffalo Bill' Cody: It's the way of the people. There's nothing we can do.
Louisa Frederici Cody: Here am I, going to bring a new life into the world, and leaving an old woman to die.
William F. 'Buffalo Bill' Cody: That's nature's way, Louisa. When anything becomes too old to be useful, it's just pushed aside.
Louisa Frederici Cody: But it shouldn't be! That's why we have civilization!

Facts about

This is the second film that features the character of Buffalo Bill and Anthony Quinn playing a Cheyenne warrior. The first one was The Plainsman.
Much of Cody's life as depicted in the film was true: He did fight to the death with Chief Yellow Hand and he did receive the Congressional Medal of Honor (although it was rescinded in 1917 because he was not in the army); his son, Kit Carson Cody, did die (but of scarlet fever, not diphtheria); his wife (not the daughter of a senator) had three other children.
When Sgt. Chips is delivering mail at the beginning of the film, one of the mailboxes he delivers to is labeled "2nd Lt. A. MacKenzie". ├ćneas MacKenzie was one of the film's writers.
