    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (6)

      • Gadgets: canteen filled with flammable liquid

      • Disguises: Southern sketch artist Mr. Lindsay, Fargo the blacksmith

      • While the phony Jim is lying on the bank floor, his zipper is half way down. In the next shot, it is closed.

      • During the scene when Jim is sent out to face the top three students, he comments "They're armed, I suppose." The voice that speaks is definitely not Robert Conrad's.

      • When the first student, Giddings, shoots at Jim, he fires three shots. However, when Jim knocks him out, Loveless tells him that he only had one bullet in his gun.

      • Dr. Loveless boasts to Jim that he is planning operations against a prison, an armory, and a treasury. When relating this to Artemus, Jim adds the information, apparently plucked from thin air, that the operations are to be performed simultaneously.

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Dr. Loveless: Too long have we tarried in this unquiet place where man imprisons man.

      • Fargo: Mind tellin' me why you're starin' at me like that?
        Artie: Hmm? Oh, I'm sorry, I was just thinking... would you consider lending me your mustache, Mr. Fargo?

      • Belladonna: That was real smart. How'd you figure out the gun shot in reverse?
        Jim: I learned a long time ago to beware of Greeks bearing gifts
        Belladonna: What's that mean?
        Dr. Loveless: Spell it out for her, Mr. West.
        Jim: Well, it's not too difficult to figure out the good doctor's sense of humor. If he gives you a gun just at the moment you need that gun, then you can rest assured it will fire backward and at you.

      • Dr. Loveless: Oh, you weary me, West.
        Jim: I'm sorry. Any particular reason?
        Dr. Loveless: Many reasons. You weary me with the sight of your strong, straight body. You weary me with your smug, neatly-ordered mind. Actually, not the worst I've ever encountered.
        Jim: A poor thing, but my own.
        Dr. Loveless: You weary me with your selfless ant-like devotion to a society that no longer deserves it.
        Jim: You're not going to run out of reasons now, are you, Doctor?
        Dr. Loveless: You weary me by being. By existing. By your uncanny talent for appearing at exactly the right place at the wrongest possible time. Belladonna, I'll trade you this gun for one that shoots forward. Forever and forever, farewell, Cassius. If we do meet again, well, we shall smile. If we do not, well, then...

      • Artie: Ah, well, as my old Aunt Maude always used to say to me: "Artemus, if you can't win the game, the next best thing is to upset the chessboard."

      • Dr. Loveless: But do you think the possibility of death holds such terror for me?
        Jim: No. But I know what does. No more assaults against society. No more revenge against the world. No striking back, right?
        Dr. Loveless: There is a certain tortured logic in what you say.
