Did You Know?
Although the movie takes place in 1846, it shows the soldiers using Colt Dragoon revolvers, which weren't manufactured until 1848. The only Colt revolvers before 1848 was the Colt Patterson revolver, a small caliber 5 shot revolver which was used by the Texas Rangers. See more
Haven't you ever rode a horse before?
Oh yes, yes. It was quite a while ago, though. I remember that the horse had rockers on it.
