Best western movie mistakes of 1939
Revealing mistake: When we see a wagon with a woman and several children in it, the horses get spooked and run. A woman is seen desperately trying to stop the runaway horses. In the next scene you can see the children are not real and the woman is a man dressed in a woman's dress, obviously a stunt man used for that scene.
Factual error: When Cagney surprises Ward Bond in a saloon, they run out the back and across a rail freight yard. They jump onto boxcars of a slow moving train. Bond jumps up between two older wooden-bodied boxcars, A and B. Cagney, in pursuit, jumps up between cars B and C. In the wide shots, car C is seen to be a steel-bodied boxcar built at the earliest in the late 1930's. Events in the movie show the time-line to be set in September, 1893.
