- It's a whole new west. July '99.
- On July 2nd, it's a whole new west.
- President Grant: Mr. West, not every situation requires your patented approach of shoot first, shoot later, shoot some more and then when everybody's dead try to ask a question or two.
Artemus Gordon: She's a breath of fresh ass. Capt. James West: Pardon me? Artemus Gordon: What? Capt. James West: You said "ass." Artemus Gordon: No, I didn't. I said, "It's nice having her on board, she's a breast of fresh air." Capt. James West: Let's just get some shut ass.
Dr. Arliss Loveless: Mister West! How nice of you to join us tonight and add COLOR to these monochromatic proceedings! Capt. James West: Well when a fella comes back from the dead, I find that an occasion to STAND UP and be counted! Dr. Arliss Loveless: Miss East informs me that you were expectin' to see General McGrath here. Well, I knew him years ago, but I haven't seen him in a COON's age! Capt. James West: Well, I can see where it'd be difficult for a man of your stature to keep in touch with even HALF the people you know. Dr. Arliss Loveless: Well, perhaps the lovely Miss East will keep you from bein' a SLAVE to your disappointment! Capt. James West: Well, you know beautiful women; they encourage you one minute, and CUT THE LEGS OUT from under you the next!
Capt. James West: Loveless has kidnapped metallurgists, so whatever he's building is going to have armor. He's kidnapped chemists, so it'll have explosives. And you've said that Rita's father is the biggest expert on hydraulics in the world, so it's going to move. What could he be building that will make the president surrender the U.S. Goverment? Artemus Gordon: A bedside heater. Capt. James West: What? Artemus Gordon: Rita. She could use a bedside heater. It gets rather cold back there.
Dr. Arliss Loveless: We may have lost the war, but we haven't lost our sense of humor. Even when we lose a lung, a spleen, a bladder, thirty-five feet of small intestine, two legs, and our ability to reproduce all in the name of the south, do we EVER LOSE OUR SENSE OF HUMOR?
- The only building which was not destroyed in Silverado is the "Lucky Hotel."
The shot of the puppy looking into General "Bloodbath" McGrath's hearing aid is a visual reference to 'His Master's Voice', a painting by Francis Barraud. The image of Nipper the dog listening to a gramophone was used for decades as the logo of RCA Victor (and still is, in North America); in Europe it's known more recently as the logo for HMV media stores.
At an official $150 million (unofficial $180 million) it stands as the most expensive movie produced by Warner Bros. and the most expensive movie released in 1999.
George Clooney was attached to play Artemus Gordon, but turned it down reportedly because it was a supporting part.
When this film swept the 20th Annual Razzie Awards, "winning" 5 statuettes including Worst Picture, Robert Conrad, who played James West in the original 1960s TV series, accepted three of the awards in person as his way of expressing his low opinion of what had been done with his source material.
