Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): Throughout the movie Custer is referred to as "General Custer" and is seen wearing two stars on his uniform collar (indicating the rank of Major General. During the Civil War he was given the rank of Brevet Major General of Volunteers which was a temporary promotion for the duration of the war. At the end of the war he was once again reduced to the rank of Captain in the Regular Army. By the time of the Battle of Little Big Horn in 1876 he had risen to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and would have been addressed as "Colonel" and would have worn the appropriate insignia for that rank.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): Following the movie time line, Jack Crabbe should have been rescued from the Indians around 1865. When he enters his gunfighter period around 1866, Jack is carrying two 1873 Colt Peacemakers while Hickock's pistol is an 1882 Colt.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): When Jack and his bride are being photographed in front of their store the photographer removes the lens cap to expose the film and we see the image being taken reversed on camera glass. In reality the film holder would have blocked any view during the exposure.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): Custer's attack on the Cheyenne at the Washita River occurred in the winter of 1868. Since Wild Bill Hickock was shot in the summer of 1876, Jack's drunk period would have lasted about eight years. Also the Battle of Little Big Horn was on June 25, 1876; Hickock was killed August 2, 1876, more than one month later.
