More quotes from The High Chaparral

Trivia: High Chaparral was one of the first TV westerns to hire large numbers of genuine Native American actors to play the "Indians." During a casting call for the part of Apache Chief Cochise, one actor, when asked to give his name, responded "Cochise." "No, no," the casting director argued. "That's the role. We want your name." "Cochise." This went back and forth a few times before the actor slapped the table and angrily declared, "Damn it, I am Cochise!" And to the casting director's astonishment, he was - a namesake and great-grandson of the original Cochise. [Source: TV Guide, 1967.].
