The Quick and the Dead

Factual error: In the bar when the lady buys herself a drink before getting challenged to her first fight, she drops a nickel on the table. It's a Jefferson nickel, not minted until 1913.

Trivia: Star and Co-producer Sharon Stone was so adamant that Leonardo DiCaprio be cast as "The Kid" that when the production company refused his hiring, wanting a higher profile actor, she paid his salary personally out of her own pocket. She also hand-picked and insisted on the hiring of Russell Crowe, but fortunately for her pocketbook the production company agreed. (Source: IMDb)

Question: Who shoots Herod the first time in the final showdown with Ellen? I have replayed the video several times and her gun does not fire until the second, kill shot to the head. Cort is just behind her. Are we supposed to surmise that he shot Herod first? Just a mistake?

Answer: Ellen shoots Herod both times. There is a muzzle flash and sound effect from her gun just as Herod's shot hits her. If it helps, watch the scene in slow motion.
