Trivia
According to a interview with Walter Hill, he never liked the title of the movie "Geronimo: An American Legend" because he never felt the movie was about Geronimo but about the men who had caught Geronimo. In that same interview, he stated there is a longer version to the movie, he was forced to cut it down by 12 minutes; in his own words, he describes the version as a "damn good" version and felt that the studio should released that version on DVD.

Patric showed his considerable horsemanship in the scene where he has a one-on-one showdown with an Apache warrior. Patrick goes from laying across his horse prone on the ground, to ordering the horse back onto its feet while he mounts it as it quickly rolls upright - rifle in one hand, reins in the other.

Tom Horn and The Apache Kid were not portrayed in "Geronimo, An American Legend" Most sccounts have them as being instrumental in the capture of Geronimo.

Goofs
The steam locomotive used to transport the Apache band at the end is an oil burning locomotive. A phony load of wood sits atop the tender's fuel-oil bunker. The engine is making thick black smoke, an indication of an oil fired locomotive. Such thick smoke is an indication of poor fuel burning, something movie directors request, but hardly real-world practice. Properly operated steam locomotives make much less smoke, regardless of whether fuel is wood, coal, or oil.

When confronted in the Mexican cantina, Schoonover states that he is from Brewster County, TX. Brewster did not exist until it was marked off from Presidio County in February 1887, whereas this scene is set prior to Geronimo's surrender in September 1886.
