NOTES

powered by AFI

The film begins with the following written foreword: "The close of the Civil War found the North facing a beef shortage not unlike the Nation's problem of today. Then in 1869, out of Texas came the answer-a cattle drive unequaled in history... their goal the mushroom town of gambling halls and loading pens...Abilene, Kansas." The Motion Picture Herald Prod Digest and New York Times reviews mistakenly credit William McGann as the film's sole director. McGann was listed as director in Hollywood Reporter news items and early production charts, but was replaced by producer Ford Beebe shortly after principal photography started. According to Hollywood Reporter, some exteriors were shot on-location near Newhall, CA. Modern sources include Earle Hodgins, Bob Reeves and Kermit Maynard in the cast.
