Jack Beauregard, once the greatest gunslinger of the Old West, only wants to move to Europe and retire in peace.

He arranges for Jack to face the 150-man gang known as The Wild Bunch and earn his place in history.

Composer Ennio Morricone spoofs his own earlier Sergio Leone-helmed "Man with No Name" film scores with an over-the-top soundtrack, including shrill choral voices and a warbling whistle interwoven with a tinny recurring passage from Richard Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries". Also the soundtrack reuses part of "Frank"'s theme from Once Upon a Time in the West for the shootout sequence.
This was Henry Fonda's last western.
While walking through Boot Hill, Hill points out to Fonda that one of the names on a gravestone is Sam Peckinpah. That same year, Clint Eastwood, in High Plains Drifter, had a Boot Hill scene that included Sergio Leone's tombstone, as well as a number of others.
German Import DVD has a Super-8 Version (German language only), as a special feature on the disc.
There is a modern fire hydrant on New Orleans sidewalk.
As Nobody and Jack face off in the New Orleans street - a window air-conditioner (draped with canvas) and what appears to be an electric window fan can be seen on the side of the "Hotel" in the background.
The steamboat "President" in the background near the end was built in 1924 and then known as "Cincinnati". She was not given her name until 1934, while the events in the movie take place in 1899.
When Nobody is trying to hit the fish with a stick in the water, the position of his arms change between the close ups, and the far away shots.
When Jack Beauregard and Nobody have their first street showdown, the sunlight and shadows clearly indicate late afternoon. Then Jack looks out in the distance and sees the Wild Bunch riders, who then ride into town. Now suddenly the sun and shadows indicate late morning or mid-day.
When Nobody takes off with the train, the last car is a caboose. Yet just a while later when the train comes to the aid of Jack Beauregard, there is a flat-car attached behind the caboose.
Opening Scene. In the barbershop when the would-be bushwacker has lifted the shaving cream brush out of the shaving cream cup and rotates it to stuff it into the barber's mouth, it is clean and dry. As he then lifts it to the barber's mouth and actually stuffs it in there is shaving cream all over it and subsequently, all over the barber's mouth once it's inserted.
The locomotive is shown to be a coal-burning type, but has a "diamond" stack of the type used on wood-burning locomotives to trap embers and sparks.
The photographer is shown using flash powder to illuminate the gunfight; since the shootout takes place in bright daylight, this is unnecessary, and wouldn't give enough light to be useful at the distance shown anyway.
On some prints, usually the print shown on cable television, R.G. Armstrong is mistakenly listed in opening credits as "R.K. Armstrong."
The "gold" bars being loaded into the train are obviously fake slugs of undetermined material. You can clearly see the brush strokes of the gold paint that was used to create the illusion of a gold bar.
