Trivia Anson Mount played the video game Red Dead Redemption for about a month before his audition, and he has been often told that his character bears resemblance to John Marston, the protagonist of the game. See more »
Goofs All of the natives in this series are depicted with eyebrows. Almost all the native peoples of North America routinely removed all facial hair as part of their cultural traditions - including eyebrows. See the 19th-century photographs by Edward S Curtis and others, and the paintings from life by Bodmer, Catlin, and Kurtz and you will find nobody with eyebrows. This and many other cultural elements were lost during the early Reservation era and today even Native American actors are sadly unaware of it. See more »
