  2. For my money, and I'm mostly broke, but still, "The Kentuckian", was an excellent frontier/western movie. Burt was never better, but he was super good in "Here to Eternity", and "Field of Dreams". I wish I knew if the steam boat owner survived the rifle shot to his head. I really enjoyed the rest of the cast. It was a real career maker for Walter Mathieu to have a piece of this flick.

  3. The cabins used in this movie are located close to me in Spencer county, Indiana. They are at the old fairgrounds in the town of Rockport, a town that sits on the Ohio river, in the southwestern part of our state. They have been preserved and there is a small museum there as well.

  4. That Hannah was some woman! She knew how to handle a team of horses and shoot a rifle! Thus, she saved Burt’s life twice. He was smart picking her over that other woman.

  5. Of course there were no animal rights in those days. Watching the dogfight, which was real (6:30 into the movie), staged, trained — is hard to watch. In 1955 if you mentioned the word "rights" to anyone (for anything or anyone – besides white males) you'd be laughed at. And that ignorance still exists today.
