Quotes from

[Preacher forces Catherine to take up with one of his sons]
Catherine Allen: I need some time. It's a very hard choice to make.
Preacher Quint: Of course it's hard. I'll give you two days. That's fair, two days. Now, pick over all the fine points. Rafe there is smarter but he's meaner, and Rufe there, he's stronger but he's dumber. If the good Lord had seen fit to put them both together, they would have made a perfect man.


Will Penny: [to Catherine] It's just a case of too soon old and too late smart.


Blue: [referring to the severely wounded Dutchy] He's a good boy. This is no good way for him to go, Will.
Will Penny: Tell yuh, Blue, ain't no good way to go.

Facts about

This picture was theatrically released only a week after another Charlton Heston movie, Planet of the Apes. That film was widely released on 03 April 1968 just seven days before this picture's debut on 07 April 1968.
Various people said to Charlton Heston, as outlined in his 1995 autobiography 'In the Arena: An Autobiography', "That's maybe the best movie you ever made, Chuck, but if you'd taken the girl with you at the end, it would've made a ton of money, too."
Charlton Heston blamed this picture's poor box-office performance on the film's downbeat ending as well as the Paramount Studios who he said "more or less buried the release of films made under the previous regime, preferring to press forward with their own plans".
