The rodeo shots are the same as the ones used in The Man from Utah (1934).
Juanita's house is the same house as used as the Matlock ranch-house in He Wore a Star (1934)
and as Malgrove's house in Blue Steel (1934).
* Continuity: After Scott stops the stage, he agrees to drive it into town.
He jumps on the driver's seat and heads off, leaving his own horse behind.
However, as the stage arrives in town, his horse can be seen tied on behind the stage.
* Continuity: When dressing to see Juanita, Scott changes hats.
However the hat is on a hook on the wall when he arrives, but when he leaves he picks it up from the dresser near the door.
* Continuity: When Scott and Kansas escape from the gaol,
Scott was unarmed but was wearing his gun-belt. As he runs across to the horses,
he now has a gun in his holster.
