Other mistake: There is a scene where a dead Indian warrior is discovered. In this scene he is covered by a large flat piece of stone. When they pull away the stone you can see his chest rising and falling as the "dead" Indian breathes. Much easier to see when viewed in HD.

Laurie Jorgensen: Ethan rode on an hour ago. Now Martin I don't know what you can do about finding Debbie that he can't. He'll find her now, Martin. Honest he will.
Martin: That's what I'm afraid Of Laurie, him finding her. Oh I've seen his eyes at the very word "Comanche." I've seen him take his knife and - - Never mind. He's a man that can go crazy wild and I intend to be there to stop him in case he does.

More quotes from The Searchers

Question: I remember seeing a version of this movie many years ago and in it, either during or right after the attack on Scar's camp, the Reverend Clayton (Ward Bond) falls from his horse and onto his backside into a pile of cactus. Current versions do not have this scene. A search of the internet finds no mention of this but there is a scene that is consistent with what I remember seeing. W see the Reverend bent over with his pants down and Charlie McCorry (Ken Curtis) tending to what appears to be a wound on the Reverend's butt. Without what I remember seeing, this scene is completely meaningless. Does anyone remember the cactus scene or am I imagining things? (01:56:25)

Chosen answer: There was no cactus. A young inexperienced cavalry man, played by Patrick Wayne, constantly holds up his saber, which Ward Bond tells him to put away, before he hurts someone. After the battle, someone asks if he got injured by the Indians. Ward angrily replies "It wasn't the Indians" and looks at Patrick, who has a look of embarrassment.
