The film reproduces the actual prison quite well. Yuma Territorial Prison in Yuma AZ opened on July 1, 1876, and shut down on September 15, 1909, and housed over 3,000 men and over two dozen women for crimes ranging from murder to polygamy. The site is now operated as a historical museum by Arizona State Parks as Yuma Territorial Prison State Historic Park. See more
Earlier in the movie one of the prisoners attempts to escape by climbing a wall, but he is gunned down by a prison guard using a Gatling gun. The Gatling gun fires numerous rounds at or around the prisoner and the wall he is climbing, yet absolutely no bullet holes or impact splinters are seen. Later in the film, the same Gatling gun is fired numerous times at a wall: this time, the expected bullet holes and impact fragments are clearly evident. See more
