I was trying to figure out how Dalton Trumbo got his name on this, but it seems Sutherland recites a speech from his novel Johnny Get Your Gun at the end of the film, hence the credit (words that, oddly enough, do not appear in the film of Johnny Get Your Gun, which also featured Sutherland).

Francine Parker was my directing professor in college. She loved to talk about this film. One of her crowning achievements.

How dated, how of-its-time this is. Entertainment from the 50s, 40s - heck, even stuff from the Civil War era seems equally current, in 2012.
