Interesting Note: According to Gene Wilder's autobiography, John Wayne was offered the part that was eventually played by Harrison Ford. The Duke loved the role and was willing to star with Gene Wilder. However an agent tried to offer John Wayne less than his usual fee and the legendary actor turned the film down.
