Corrected entry: In a scene towards the end of the film Vienna and Emma confront each other for a shootout. The posse has gathered to watch and when "The Dancing Kid" objects to Emma's intentions of killing Vienna, he runs toward Emma and is shot by Emma between the eyes. There is no blood, just a mark on the temple, then he falls to the ground. In the next shot we see the wounded man trying to get up - unlikely. In reality, a head shot is nearly always fatal: at the very least, the person is unconscious.


Correction: Actually, in reality a head shot is not nearly always fatal. People have tried commiting suicide and neither killed themselves, nor been unconscious. Especially with lower powered guns used in the "Old West" which didn't have nearly the stopping power of modern weapons.
