Factual error: The mine that Rooster fires his pistol into is shown to go far into the hillside. A lot of digging has occurred here. However, the exterior shot of the mine shows no mine tailings whatsoever. There should have been a substantial amount of removed rock outside the entrance.Bruce Trestrail
Factual error: The soles of the boots worn by Rooster are incorrect for the period. They are not smooth, but are patterned for mountain climbing. The soles of the boots may be seen in the scene in which Rooster is drunk and challenges the Ranger in target shooting.
Factual error: The story takes place in 1875, but Rooster's Colt Army revolver has a cylinder cross-pin in the frame that did not appear on Colts until 1896.
