Goofs

At 37:00, McQueen goes to visit his old partner. He sits down at a table with him and takes put a pouch of tobacco and rolling paper. He opens the pouch & sprinkles tobacco onto the paper, then pulls the drawstring on the tobacco pouch with his teeth and throws the pouch on the table. Seconds later, in the next scene, the pouch is back in his hand and he repeats the same process. See more »

Quotes

Pluthner: Was there any trouble?
Wes McQueen: A little. The marshal picked up Reno and Duke.
Pluthner: What? Ah, that was a tough break. They was good boys. But that's the game for ya... all part of the game. You and me, Wes - just you and me left out of that fine parcel of men. Of course, we end up with the money, you and me, but that's how the cards fall.
Wes McQueen: Look, Pluthner! This deck has had so much bottom-dealing that it's dog-eared. Too many jokers keep turning up.
