  • Trivia

    • As the Stooges exchange aces during the card game, the camera shows a close-up of both Moe and Curly's hands. For some reason, both Stooges have the ace of spades and the ace of clubs but the other aces are nowhere to be seen.

    • As Curly enters the saloon and turns his hat sideways, he starts walking away. The camera suddenly cuts to another shot and isn't walking and is back where he first started.

    • A cord can be seen pulling the monkey's hat when one of the crooks shoots it off.

    • Strings can be seen guiding the monkey in some scenes in the wagon.

    • When Curly drops the bullets in the meat grinder, the meat he had ground in the previous scene disappears.

    • The wire that pulls the mud out of Moe's ear is clearly visible.

  • Quotes

    • (Two rusters walk by the poker table bearing a stretcher.)
      Moe: Hey, what happened to those fellas?
      Pete: Those are three crooks I shot for cheating in a card game.

    • (Larry is looking over Pete's shoulder and sees 4 kings in his hand.)
      Larry: Oh! Oh!
      Moe: What's the matter with you?
      Larry: I just had four kinks in my back!
      Curly: Four kinks!
      (Moe and Curly both realize that they have two aces each.)
      Moe: You know, when I get kinks in the back I generally go to the desert.
      Curly: The desert?
      Moe: Yeah, desert. Oasis! Oasis!
      Curly: That's nothing. I've been to the oasis twice!
      Moe: Me too!

    • Larry: (watching the poker game) I wish I could play this here game but I don't know one card from another.

    • General Muster: Noble work, my men! The president shall hear of this!
      The Stooges: No!
      General Muster: Yes.

    • Curly: (before running into the shack) I'll tell them we're not home!

    • (The Stooges have sent for the cavalry)
      Moe: (needing money for gambling) How about a little credit, Pete, until our reserves get here?
      Longhorn Pete: Oh, I guess you're good for 25.
      Curly: Soiteny! They'll probably send more than that!
