When the Kid visits Jane, he ties his horse to the bar in front of the house. A short time after that, Ned arrives. He's searching for the Kid. He is so eager to get him that (later in the movie) he even shoots at him (when the Kid is fleeing from the court house). But when Jane tells Ned that the Kid is not there, he believes her without asking about the horse, which he must have seen when he arrived. See more »

How did this one get past the Hays Office? James Cagney doesn't just break the law: he *denounces* the law, and work, and empire-building, and Indian-killing, and basically preaches anarchism. And not only does the screenplay support him, but he ends up getting the girl. This is hardly a great movie -- it's sometimes quite clumsy, and I'm not much of a Cagney fan anyway -- but it's fun, and it's definitely a curio.
