After the first take of the scene where Henry Heath (John Freeman) roughly interrogates Jean Baptiste (David Stevens), Stevens, a "Method" actor angrily berated Freeman for not choking him hard enough. The second take had to be cut short when Stevens could not get out any lines because Freeman's choking was too effective. Stevens had to tap out rather than deliver his lines. "Turns out you can't say OK, OK, when a cowboy is really choking you" said Stevens. "From now on we will try acting".
The flames shooting from Henry Heath's gun barrel during the gunfight were not a planned stunt but an actual misfire of the gun, a common mishap with old cap and ball pistols such as the replica used during filming.
