Correction: This was done deliberately to show how ignorant Michaleen was about U.S. geography.

Corrected entry: After it starts raining at the graveyard, John Wayne hands his wife his coat and she puts it on. She doesn't have the coat on when she goes to cuddle with him a split second later.

Correction: Sean only lays the coat over her shoulders. When the lightning/ thunder strikes and she runs into his arms, the coat falls off of her shoulders.


Continuity mistake: When John Wayne first meets with the woman at the church, the first time we see her she puts a dark piece of clothing over her head. In the next scene, which is a closer angle, it is gone.

Trivia: Many of the actors in this film were related. Barry Fitzgerald and Arthur Shield were brothers. Charles and James Fitzsimons were Maureen O'Hara's real-life brothers (Fitzsimons was her real surname), and Francis Ford was director John Ford's brother. In the race scene where Maureen O'Hara is in a hay wagon, the four people with her are John Wayne's children. Patrick and Melinda in the wagon with O'Hara, Michael and Toni stand next to the wagon.
