According to the date on Queasley's telegram, the film takes place in 1880. Yet Milford and Cora Lee sing a song mentioning Grant's Tomb, even though former President Ulysses S. Grant didn't die until 1885, and his tomb in New York City wasn't built until many years after that. Also, Milford sees a young boy playing the piano, who tells him his name is Harry Truman. Truman wasn't born until 1884.
In various literary sources (Citadel press' "The Films of Gary Cooper" for one), both Gene Autry and James Garner are quoted making cameo appearances in the film, but neither is to be found in the present US video version.
