The location for the Austin set typifies the Hollywood image of Texas being dry and filled with scrub. Actually, Austin is very green and located in valley with numerous rivers, with an average humidity of only 4 millibars less than Honolulu, and has wild bamboo growing in creeks. See more »

At the beginning of the broadcast version, there is a flashback to Buffalo Hump's youth, in which several Comanche tribes are called together to meet with American military officers in a tent, and are subsequently betrayed by the white men opening fire on them from outside. In the DVD, this scene is moved to the end of the first episode, while Buffalo Hump describes the incident to his fellow tribe members as they set out to raid Austin. See more »
I am a big fan of Lonesome Dove and all the books in the series and I love the movie. I was happy to see that they finished up with Comanche moon. I have been a long time fan of Steve Zahn and was eager to see him in a serious role. I personally think that Steve Zahn has done an amazing job of re-creating Gus. I can't think of another actor who would have been better. He has the voice, the mannerisms, the pronunciation of word all down to a T. Granted, no one could ever hold a candle to Robert Duvall as Gus, but I think that Steve Zahn has done a pretty darn good job. Karl Urban acts the same in all the movies he has been in so he has made a good match for Woodrow Call. AS for the movie itself, yeah it's a little corny but can you really beat Lonesome Dove? No, I don't think so.
