During their dance routine outside of the saloon, the background scene shows the usual daily activity going on in the town. However, throughout the duration of the dance we see the same stagecoaches, cowboys, families etc on at least two, perhaps three occasions. Clearly the scene was filmed separately and used as a looped backdrop. See more »
That's the first mistake we've made since that fellow sold us the Brooklyn Bridge.
Buying that bridge was no mistake. That's going to be worth a lot of money to us some day.

Laurel and Hardy really don't have to DO anything to make me laugh. When they are on my screen, I howl. "West" is, in my opinion, their best film. Laurel did the cutting and he put in some sound effects that punch up the action. The spoken lines are hilarious: Stan, speaking to an imposter: "We want to know why you are not Mary Roberts!" The ridiculous dance in front of a blatantly obvious rear-projection screen is a gem. I have this movie on VHS and have run it many times. It does not get old.
