At one point the judge at McCall's trial is interrupted by a man claiming that the bullet that killed Wild Bill Hickok is lodged in his wrist. He wants to testify so that in the years to come there will be a record of his involvement in Hickok's death. This man is a real historical figure named Bill Massie. Massie was seated across from Hickock when he was killed, and the fatal bullet did in fact pass through Hickok's body and lodge in Massie's wrist. In the confusion Massie initially thought that Hickok had shot him. The bullet remained lodged in Massie's body until his death in 1910. He supplemented his income by giving paid lectures about his role in the incident. See more
