Captain Nathan Brittles, on the eve of retirement, takes out a last patrol to stop an impending massive Indian attack. Encumbered by women who must be evacuated, Brittles finds his mission imperiled.
In the scene about :38 when Sgt. Tyree rides into the buffalo herd, one of the calves has white markings on the legs.
Captain Nathan Brittles:
Never apologize. It's a sign of weakness.
The calendar page that Capt. Brittles uses to mark off the days until his retirement is for the wrong month. The calendar most unusually shows the year but not the month. However, it does show that the month has 31 days and begins on a Wednesday. Therefore, the only month in 1876 that this page would have fit was March. But it cannot be March because the film refers to the Battle of the Little Big Horn as having recently occurred and that battle did not take place until June 1876. Thus, the calendar should show the month of July because John Wayne's character indicates that it is the 5th of the month and news of Custer's death at Little Big Horn on Sunday June 25 would have taken about two weeks to arrive by Pony Express, which actually hasn't existed for 15 years even though the characters make mention of it.
