Factual error: In "Santa Fe," Jack sings the line "Far from the lousy headlines and the deadlines in between." The word "deadline" was not used in this sense until the 1920s (the movie is set in 1899).

Question: One of the mistakes on this site state that you can see Crutchy dancing without the use of his crutch. When and during which number?

Answer: During the "Two for a Penny" sequence in Carrying the Banner, you can see Crutchy dancing in one of the back rows on the right without his crutch. You can also see him walking without it behind David during the first Sieze the Day when David sings "Arise and seize the day!"
