A Powerful Story of 9 Strange People!
Revealing Mistakes
In the beginning sequence when the stage is coming into town you can see that the buildings are stage facades as the camera shot is at an angle and it is clear there is no structure behind the false front.

Crew/Equipment Visible
As the stagecoach crosses the river at the burnt out ferry, the shadow of a camera is clearly visible on the driver's back.

While the stage is at the ferry, Curly tells Buck to drive the stage into the river. The next shot shows Curly tying down one of the floats on the river bank.

In the begining of the film, when the stagecoach is going into Tonto street, we see its shadow to one side. In the next shot the shadow is on the other side.

Audio/Video Mismatch
As Dallas announces "It's a little girl", her lips don't move.
Orson Welles privately watched this film about 40 times while he was making Citizen Kane (1941).

The first of many collaborations between John Ford and John Wayne.

Producer Walter Wanger wanted Gary Cooper for the role of Ringo but Cooper's fees were too high. Bruce Cabot unsuccessfully tested for it before John Ford got his wish and cast John Wayne.
