This movie is rumored to play in real time. Several shots of clocks are interspersed throughout the film and they correspond with actual minutes ticking by. See more »
In a number of scenes there are Pabst Brewing signs is seen on the inside and outside walls of the saloon. Although they did brew in 1848 they did so under the name Best and Company and did not change to Pabst until 1889 and the 37 star flag suggests the setting dates are between 1867-1876. See more »
People gotta talk themselves into law and order before they do anything about it. Maybe because down deep they don't care. They just don't care.

I just watched this movie again. I have no idea how many times I have seen this movie over the span of my 52 years (yes I was born the same year the movie was released). Each time I have seen it, of late, I continue to develop a greater appreciation for it. I normally liked to be lightly entertained by a movie. This movie provides a glimps at so many varied characters, showing such a variety of emotions and complex personal issues. This is no-nonsense, un-contrived, straight forward story telling, at its best. I truly enjoy the restrained use of dialogue. It is amazing how much story is told with so few words, in a limited running time. WOW, I love it.
