Goofs

When Poteet, Skimmerhorn and company talk to prospective cowhands in town, dirty Buck is sitting on the ledge of a building in the background. As they are leaving he can be seen jumping down off the ledge. The camera shows the Poteet group leaving, then comes back to the assembled cowhands and Buck is back on the high shelf. Just a matter of film cutting and not a biggie. Great movie. See more »
