Factual errors 

There were no gunslingers or shootouts in Dawson City during the Klondike gold rush. The Mounted Police were in the Yukon in large numbers and enforced the law very strictly. Dawson City during the Klondike gold rush was peaceful and not lawless as depicted in the movie.

The populace of Dawson City (or any Canadian city) never elected a U.S.-style marshal with tin star to police the city. The Mounted Police were present in the Yukon in large numbers before and during the Klondike gold rush to enforce the law.
