Young Guns

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)

Revealing mistake: There is a scene where one of them jumps on a horse, and you can see one of the crew holding on to the reigns as the horse throws its head back.

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)

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.


Richard Brewer: Lord, forgive us for our wrongdoings, for our misguidance by heathen religions. Thank you for keeping us alive. Lord, be with us in doing the right thing. Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallow be thy name.
William H. Bonney: Please, Dick. It's getting cold. (he and Dick both pull guns on each other) I could've killed you, Dick. I could've killed you, but I don't want to kill you. I want to eat.

"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.

"Dirty Steve" Stephens: Did you guys see the size of that chicken?

More quotes from Young Guns


Question: Chavez calls Billy "Chevato". What does this mean?

Chosen answer: He calls him Chivito. Chivo means goat - chivito is the diminuative, ie. a baby goat, which is a kid, hence Billy The Kid.

He didn't call him Chivito, he called him Chivato.

Answer: Chevato was an Apache warrior born in Mexico. History remembers him as the shaman that introduced peyote rituals to the American tribes.

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.
