Trivia: The guitar that Domergue plays and that was subsequently destroyed by Ruth was a priceless antique from the 1870's on loan from the Martin Guitar Museum. Six replicas were made for the film, however Kurt Russell wasn't correctly informed and destroyed the original. Due to this the Martin Guitar Museum said they would never lend an instrument to film shoots ever again. (01:38:00 - 01:42:30)

Trivia: Towards the end of the movie. When Major Marquis runs out of ammo, in the slow motion scene. The score is taken from John Carpenter's "The Thing", another movie staring Kurt Russell.

Continuity mistake: When they pick up Warren on the stagecoach, the second shot from inside has the wrong direction of landscape outside, so it seems that Warren changed from the front to the back row.

Major Marquis Warren: When the handbill says "dead or alive", the rest of us just shoot you in the back from up on top a perch somewhere and bring you in dead over a saddle. When John Ruth the Hangman catches you...you hang.

Question: I know it was never really found out, but was Chris Mannix really the new sheriff of Red Rock?

Answer: Yes, I think he is the only person besides John Ruth that didn't lie about anything during the course of the movie. It is somewhat proven after not accepting Daisy's proposal at the end.
