- There are no close-ups in this film.
- The sets in Old Tucson are built to 7/8th scale, so the performers look larger than life.
- Although Harry Carey, Jr. was listed in the credits on-screen, he does not appear in the picture. Carey had a drinking problem at the time. He called the director "Howard" instead of "Mr. Hawks" on one of his first days on the set, infuriating Hawks. His contract, including his pay and his screen credit, was honored, but his part (a townsperson) was cut.
- The song "My Rifle, My Pony and Me" was originally used as the theme for Red River (1948), another 'John Wayne' western. The original title was "Settle Down".
