Young Guns mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: In the shot where Dirty Steve is on his horse, he asks, "Hey Dog, did you see the size of that chicken?", and then he fires his shotgun. You can see someone's hand come up to grab the reigns of the horse. (00:43:25)

Visible crew/equipment: When Buckshot Roberts is going into the outhouse there is a sequence of shots that show Billy the Kid, Dick Brewer and Dirty Steve hiding behind a pile of logs. In almost every shot where these three are seen behind the logs you can see a camera tri-pod leaning against a fence. The sequence lasts over a minute so you have several chances to plainly see it. (00:47:05 - 00:48:15)

Revealing mistake: In the final scene as Doc tell Billy good-bye if you look up to the top right hand corner of the screen you can clearly see a jet trail in the blue sky. Certainly not possible in those days. (01:42:20)

"Dirty Steve" Stephens: Damn good riding with you, Chavez.
Chavez: Many nights, my friend... Many nights I've put a blade to your throat while you were sleeping. Glad I never killed you, Steve. You're all right.

Trivia: When the Regulators are making their escape out of the house at the end, if you look at the extra shot right after Charlie (Casey Sizemore) busts out of the house, you'll see a young Tom Cruise. He was on-set visiting with friend Emilio Estevez and got into makeup (including huge sideburns) and on-screen.

Question: Did that bounty hunter in the bar ever realise that he was in fact talking to Billy the Kid... Prior to being shot?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: He may have. When Billy started whistling, the bounty hunter's face changes. He continues to speak to Billy in a dismissive tone, but does eventually pull the trigger (although Billy had unloaded the pistol). Hard to believe he would just shoot some mouthy kid in a bar.
