Facts about

The film was widely regarded as a generally light-hearted variation on an earlier John Ford western, The Searchers.
Filmed in 1960, not released until 1961.
This was the last film in which James Stewart wore his familiar cowboy hat. Up to this point, he had worn it in all his westerns since Winchester '73, except Broken Arrow. This was Stewart's first film with John Ford, and Ford didn't want him to wear it as he thought it was the worst looking cowboy hat he had ever seen. As Stewart said in the documentary, "A Wonderful Life", Ford relented, but got back at him in their next western, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, when he didn't let Stewart wear a hat at all.
