Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Filmed on the same outdoor sets as Westworld.
  • The role of Bart was intended for Richard Pryor, but due to the controversial nature of Pryor's stand-up routines of the day and his background, Mel Brooks couldn't secure financing for the project with Pryor in that role. So Pryor was made a co-writer of the script, and Cleavon Little played Bart. Pryor later got to star in a different western comedy - Adiós Amigo (1976).
  • When handing out the paddles to everyone at the table, Gov. William J. LePetomaine calls them by name as Frankie, Johnny, Patsy and Kelly. "Frankie & Johnny" was a popular song in the 1930s and Patsy Kelly was a popular comic actress at that time.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Jim finishes shaving, he has bits of shaving cream on his face. After he "draws" his fingers on Bart the shaving cream on his face is completely gone.
