The inset stills on Photos 4, 6 and 7(video box covers) are not from "The Trail Beyond." All three are the same still and that still is from "The Lucky Texan." Typical of video distributors' art work attitudes....a tree is a tree. Use anything if it shows John Wayne. This still also shows Lloyd Whitlock and George "Gabby' Hayes, and neither is in "The Trail Beyond. " See more
The suits the passengers are wearing in the train, the decorum inside the coaches, as well as the train itself, are all indicative of the era in which this film was created. A telegram is also mentioned. However, the dress of the RCMP officers, the use of the Union Jack instead of the Canadian Red Ensign, the dress of the Native Americans, and the general lack of modern technology in the outposts in this film indicate more a 19th century setting. Thus, the audience is left very unclear as to what era the story is supposed to be set in. See more
