    • The town set which served as "Deadwood" in this episode was used in several episodes. For example, it also served as "Eagle Rock" in the later Season 4 episode entitled: "Show Me a Hero" and as "New Hope" in the later Season 4 episode entitled: "Men With Guns."

    • The device of having Trampas somewhat bored and disenchanted with ranch life and leaving for some excitement which is used in this episode is a recurring one. It was also featured in the Season 1 episode entitled: "West".

    • The plot of this episode bears more than a passing resemblance to John Huston's film "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" (1948) and this is surely not accidental.

    • Trampas, The Virginian and Randy Benton are the only regulars to appear in this episode.
