Sunset

Factual error: The events in the film take place in mid-1929, as evidenced by the first Academy Awards being presented in May. However, Wyatt Earp went to the happy hunting grounds in January of that year.

Factual error: The bad guys are vanquished, and Wyatt boards the train and heads off into the sunset. Two problems with that scenario: from Los Angeles, heading West puts you into the Pacific, and Wyatt didn't have to take the train, he lived on West 17th Street, in Los Angeles.


Wyatt Earp: It's all true, give or take a lie or two.

Tom Mix: I fell in love with a beautiful woman who believed a man was not a complete lover unless he knew how to tango.
Cheryl King, Owner of Candy Store: She didn't give you much choice.
Tom Mix: I took lessons for years.
Wyatt Earp: And what was this young lady's vocation?
Tom Mix: She was a tango instructor.

Tom Mix: Wait a minute, Wyatt, there's something we gotta get sorted out here. I threatened to rope him behind my horse and drag him, then you waltz in pretty as you please and threaten to kill him. I don't like being out-threatened.
Wyatt Earp: Sorry. Won't happen again.
