Trivia The pre-recorded songs that John Wayne is pantomiming to as Singing Sandy have, in reality, a four-string ukulele instrument accompanying - not a six-string guitar. Furthermore, the rapid strumming technique is indicative of Hawaiian music that reached its zenith of popularity in the 20s, and might be viewed as something of an anomaly compared to the many cowboy songs that would emerge within a few years of this movie's date.

Goofs When Saunders first appears in the film, he is carrying a guitar and singing. The guitar is not with him when he gives his horse to Faye Denton to make her escape, but he has it back when he is at the Denton's house and sings to the family. See more »

Quotes Singin' Sandy Saunders: Howdy, folks. Could you tell me where the Sheriff is?
James Kincaid: Oh, I take charge when he isn't here. Can I do anything I can you do for you?
Singin' Sandy Saunders: Thanks, I'll wait for him.
James Kincaid: The Sheriff didn't care especially for this job - he might not come back.
Singin' Sandy Saunders: I'll take that chance. I have an idea he *will* come back.
[Singin' Sandy leaves the jailhouse]
James Kincaid: I don't like the way that fellow talks. We'll watch him.
