Trivia: FORREST TUCKER (1919-1986) has made some fairly good films (1940-The Westerner; 1946-The Yearling; 1958-Auntie Mame; and1970-Chisum), some bland ones (1950-The Nevadan; 1952-Montana Belle) and some turkeys (1958-The Cosmic Monsters; 1977-Walking Tall--The Final Chapter), but most of us know him for his role of Sergeant O'Rourke on TV's F-Troop. An episode of the WB Network's animated series Freakazoid did a remarkably observant parody of this movie, with Freakazoid in the Forrest Tucker role.
