  • Non-Singing Voice: At the end of the song "On the Trail of the Lonesome Pine", Stan Laurel's voice switches to a deep bass and then a high falsetto. These parts were dubbed by two of his co-stars, Chill Wills and Rosina Lawrence.
  • The Other Marty: Tiny Sandford was, originally, cast as the Sheriff, but was replaced by Stanley Fields shortly after shooting began. Although Sandford's filmed footage was completely re-shot with Fields, some still photos still exist showing Sandford in the role and he survives in the first shot when the stagecoach arrives in Brushwood Gulch.
