At the beginning or the movie, we see a screen banner telling us the story's setting is New Mexico and takes place in 1873. Many of the characters use a Colt Single Action Army Revolver, some of which show significant wear. This pistol was introduced in 1873. It is unlikely that such a large number of the characters in this movie would possess a weapon that had just been released, especially with noticeable wear and customization (nickel plating, pearl handle plates, etc.).

When I first saw this movie I thought "what is Mickey Rourke doing making himself look slightly homosexual as a cowboy outlaw"!!? As I watched the movie though, it didn't matter how he looked, he was deadly. Probably the only criminal cowboy who could get away with that "dandy" look. I thought that the entire cast was great in their own parts, but once again, as with every movie he is in, Mickey Rourke stood out. It was back in the day, when I chanced upon watching "Rumble Fish", with Matt Dillon, Dennis Hopper, and (my then personal favorite), William Smith, that I noticed the Motorcycle Boy. He stole that movie, no problem. From then on out, it was because of Mickey Rourke that I watched any movie he was listed in. He is like the greatest American actor EVER.
