Rio Grande

Lt. Col. Kirby Yorke is posted on the Texas frontier to defend settlers against depredations of marauding Apaches. Col. Yorke is under considerable stress by a serious shortage of troops of his command. Tension is added when Yorke's son (whom he hasn't seen in fifteen years), Trooper Jeff Yorke, is one of 18 recruits sent to the regiment.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): The movie is set in the around 1879-1880, 15 years after General Sheridan's campaign through the Shenandoah Valley. One of the songs in the movie, "Down by the Glenside (The Bold Fenian Men)," however, was not written until 1916.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): When Lt. Col. Yorke checks his son's height on the tent, you can see previous marks from another take.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): When the Indian in the window lines up his aim to shoot John Wayne you can see there is no arrowhead on the tip.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): While the guests are entering the grandstand, one of the troopers being honored is missing (Indian scout). He shows up in the next scene as the last man in line.
