The Searchers

Revealing mistake: In the scene right after they leave Scar's wigwam, when Ethan and Martin are speaking to each other around their camp you are able to see a small brown dot right above the sandy hills. This dot is the character Debbie's head while she is waiting for her cue before she runs in to the scene.

Visible crew/equipment: The scene where Martin and Ethan watch the Cavalry ride in through the river, a car or truck is seen driving up a road to the right and comes to a stop.

Ethan: What you saw wasn't Lucy.
Brad: But it was, I tell you.
Ethan: What you saw was a buck wearin' Lucy's dress. I found Lucy back in the canyon. Wrapped her in my coat, buried her with my own hands. I thought it best to keep it from ya.
Brad: Did they...? Was she...?
Ethan: What do you want me to do? Draw you a picture? Spell it out? Don't ever ask me! Long as you live, don't ever ask me more.

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.
