Corrected entry: Kirk Douglas is stuck to the front of the train and comes out of his boots. But,in the next scene where he pouring gunpowder,he mysteriously has reclaimed his boots. How is that possible if he flew out of them in the prior scene?

Correction: The whole movie is reminiscent of a "Roadrunner/Wile E. Coyote" cartoon, with impossible gags (like the wagon passing through the side of the rock when it's painted with a "tunnel."). Cartoon characters are always being crushed, cut in two, and losing things, etc, but are back to normal within a few seconds. That's what happens here with Cactus Jack and his boots.


Visible crew/equipment: In a scene where Kirk Douglas appears to 'leap' onto his horse, a crew members arm is clearly visible in the foot of the shot pushing a mini trampoline next to the horse, ready for Kirk to jump onto and bounce up onto the saddle.
