Quotes from

Sgt. Chips: I've been waiting for you. Somebody has written you a letter.
William F. 'Buffalo Bill' Cody: Who, me?
Sgt. Chips: That's right, my boy. Who in the world would be writing to you?
William F. 'Buffalo Bill' Cody: I don't know, but if you give me the letter, I'll find out.
Sgt. Chips: You'll get yours in your proper turn. The mail is delivered according to rank. And there's plenty ranker than you!


William F. 'Buffalo Bill' Cody: Mr. President. Ladies and Gentlemen. I was afraid I was going to make a fool of myself in front of you tonight. But that would have been all right, because a man can make a fool of himself when he's off his own stamping grounds. But when a man makes a fool of himself on his own stamping grounds, there's no excuse for him. I don't hold with General Sherman that a good Indian is a dead Indian. From what I've seen, the Indian is a free-born American who'll fight for his folks, for his land and for his living... just like any other American.


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.

Facts about

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.
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He did fight to the death with Chief Yellow Hand and he did receive the Congressional Medal of Honor (although it was rescinded in 1917 because he was not in the army); his son, Kit Carson Cody, did die (but of scarlet fever, not diphtheria); his wife (not the daughter of a senator) had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.
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.
