Facts about

This film was the beginning of a collaboration between Randolph Scott and the director, Budd Boetticher, that revived Scott's career. They made six more films together over the next few years. Scott himself credited the film with reviving a dead career.
John Wayne had originally intended to play the lead role himself, but was prevented from doing so due to his busy schedule.
John Wayne's company, Batjac, produced this film and he had planned to play the lead. He didn't because after preproduction had already started, John Ford contacted the Duke with a new project called The Searchers, which Wayne opted to star in instead. Since money was already being spent to make "Seven Men From Now", it could not be stopped without losing that money. John Wayne asked Randolph Scott to play the lead in his place.
