    * Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): During a fight between Ted Hayden and Butch, Spuds shouts, "Come on, Ted!" Actually, Ted has been introduced to him and all others at the gangsters' hide-out as Gat Ganns. His real identity is in fact revealed later.

    * Continuity: When Ted Hayden first introduces himself to Gentry, the shadow on his shirt changes depending upon the camera angle.

    * Continuity: When Gentry introduces 'Gat Ganns' to the boys, his arms are by his side and his hands are empty. The next shot shows him with arms folded and holding a cigarette. When he instructs the boys to show Gat and Rusty to the sleeping quarters the cigarette has disappeared.

    * Continuity: When the dog spooks the team that Spud is driving, there are fences and buildings in the background. However the close shots of Spud show open fields behind him.

  • West of the Divide is a 1934 American Western film starring John Wayne

    This is number 3 in the series.
    I am biased towards, these Lone Star films.
    I enjoy all of them, for all their whirlwind, few days, low budget filming,
    they are a joy, and fun to watch.
    It is great to see Duke maturing in his career, and by the end of the series,
    his cadence is lower, and more mature.
    Throughout this series there were some fine character actors.
    George 'Gabby'Hayes, was once again priceless, he possessed a photographic
    memory, so that, he not only knew his own part, but be knew everyone elses, as well

    Gabby said,


    If you don't believe it in the eyes, you don't get the point across

    In this one Duke's love interest is Virginia Brown Faire,
    not one of his better ones.

    Duke is also joined by most of the best of Lone Star company,
    Yak,Earl Dwire and Lafe Mckee.
    Great film, with a runaway wagon and fight sequence,
    the falls are for real, and a happy ending.
