* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: The sheikh tries using Frank's six-gun during the raid. He accidentally fires one into the ground and misses the others by a wide margin, clearly not knowing how to shoot a pistol.

** Lady Davenport also appears to be a nod to or an Expy of Lady Anne Blunt, who genuinely was the driving force responsible for the al-Khamsa or "asil" Crabbet Arabian line. She was one of the first Europeans to encounter Bedouin tribes, which she wrote about extensively. In real life she ended up buying starved horses from a bankrupt stud in Egypt, which is considerably less exciting than the movie's portrayal.

* PreMortemOneLiner: Averted with Frank, who sings his death song, as traditional Lakotah do. Mortensen learned the Lakotah language for this picture.
** Played straight earlier: "Nobody hurts my horse."
