Oh, the side I choose will be the winning side!
Andrew Jackson appears as he looked at the time of his Presidency: 62 years of age and white haired, just as on the twenty dollar bill. At the time of the Battle of New Orleans he was not yet 48 y/o, and he still had his original red hair.
Anthony Quinn, in his only outing as film director, had his cut of the picture received warmly by preview audiences, but his executive producer/father-in-law Cecil B. DeMille substantially re-edited the movie anyway. Quinn's version has not been seen since.
