Facts about

The movie was released within a year after another landmark western, High Noon. It was actually made before the Gary Cooper film, but it spent several months in the editing rooms.
Jean Arthur, then over 50, came out of semi-retirement to play Marian Starrett, largely as a favor to her friend, director George Stevens. She would retire completely from the film business after this picture.
