There is something which just hit me like a branding iron.

One of the special features of Pernell Roberts' sublime performance as Adam was his small gestures which invoked realism.

There are a number of scenes where Adam, during cattle roundups - or some such dirty work - spits out the water before taking a drink.

At the beginning of The Long Night, Adam and Joe discuss their recent cattle roundup. Adam takes a gulp of water and spits it out. Responding to Joe's complaint about there being so much sand in his mouth that he could grow corn (or something to that effect), Adam hands Joe his canteen and tells him to wash his mouth out. Joe takes the canteen and swallows the water with all that sand :angry. If the director failed to give ML instructions, Pernell Roberts sure did :eyebrow .

That was down right sloppy acting on the part of Landon. I'm surprised that scene was not redone.
