Goofs

The story takes place in the era of stagecoaches, covered wagons, and horse drawn buggies, yet the leading lady, Iris Meredith sports an up to the minute 1940 bobbed hair style, and wears nothing but 1940 fashions, including knee length skirts, high heeled shoes, and modern day riding pants. The female extras, such as in the courtroom sequence, also wear contemporary 1940 clothing. See more »
