Wagons East

Factual error: In the saloon at night, Ben Wheeler says, "I can't afford another Workers Comp claim". Workers compensation wasn't started in the United States until 1902. (00:10:25)

Wagons East mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the wagon train is waiting for Wagonmaster Harlow to decide which fork in the road to take, all the shadows are to the left. As they approach Harlow, the shadows are in front and moment later when the wagons move off the shadows are to the right. (00:26:20)


Factual error: In the final showdown between Julian and Slade, Julian fires a single warning shot, to Slade's belly. Then when Slade draws on him, Julian turns and fires 12 rounds. That's a total of 13 shots from a pair of six shooters.


John Slade: The name's Slade.
Julian Rogers: Super. Here's an idea. Why don't you spell it out for me so I can get it right on your tombstone.

Julian Rogers: I'm going back west.
Belle: What could be there for you?
Julian Rogers: San Francisco.

John Slade: Your move, sissy boy.
Julian Rogers: Sissy boy? Oh please, that's so Dodge City.

Question: At the end, after the Indians leave and Harlow says "Wagons ho", when the wagons are moving, there's a stool thrown into the field from the left of the screen (in my viewing thrown from off-camera). Was there a joke I missed or does someone know who threw it and why?
