4) The rifle next falls into the possession of Steve Miller. He's running with Dutch Henry's gang, much to the disapproval of his girl, Lola Manners. Gunfighter 'Waco' Johnnie Dean covets it. He keeps insulting Miller in front of Lola, until finally he snaps and draws on him, though he knows he's no match for the professional. Waco kills him and takes possession, but not for long. Dutch Henry shows up and takes back "his" rifle. Who plays Lola Manners?

7) Who plays Lin's sidekick 'High-Spade' Frankie Wilson?

8) The filmmakers did not have the budget to pay James Stewart his requested fee of $200,000, so he suggested they take the then-unusual step of paying him a cut of the profits instead. This deal, the first of its kind since the advent of talkies, would soon become the norm and change the studio-agent-actor relationship, leading to the demise of the long-term contract and the studio system. Stewart is believed to have made around $600,000 from this film.
