Quotes from

Clay Hardin: [about the dance] Took me years to pick up.
Jeanne Starr: It must have been the only thing that took you that long.
Clay Hardin: Well, we don't get pretty girls like you down here often. Guess that's why we have to pay for it.


Jeanne Starr: This town looks as if it's full of men who step on baby chickens.


Jeanne Starr: Aren't you ever going to forgive me for something I didn't even do?
Clay Hardin: Uh, did you ever hear of an animal called a Judas goat?
Jeanne Starr: No, but never mind that now, Clay...
Clay Hardin: But I *do* mind now... When sheep are driven into the pen to be slaughtered, they balk and won't go in, so a goat's put in to lead 'em. The sheep trust the goat, and they go where she leads. The goat walks through untouched, but the sheep following her are killed.

Facts about

Bozic in the film twice refers to riderless horses as 'empty horses'. This is likely to be a reference to director, Michael Curtiz, with whom Errol Flynn had worked on 'The Charge of the Light Brigade (1936)'. When wanting to see stray horses wandering through the battle, Curtiz directed the wranglers to "Bring on the empty horses." When David Niven and Flynn cracked up laughing, he responded with: 'You people, you think I know f*ck nothing; I tell you: I know f*ck all". Niven later made this "curtizism" immortal by titling a volume of his autobiography:"Bring on the empty horses."
