- Awesome Music: Jon Bon Jovi's "Blaze of Glory." Emilio Estevez wanted "Wanted: Dead or Alive" but they composed an entirely new single for the film.
- More Popular Spin Off: Both Bon Jovi songs are still getting radio play today, four decades later.
- The Woobie:
- Tom, an orphan who earns his dream to be a part of Billy the Kid's gang, only to be mortally shot while on the run, at the tragic young age of 14.
- Doc, who becomes arrested for his past crimes while working as a schoolteacher (presumably trying to redeem himself, and supporting his wife and child), and eventually is shot before he even has a chance to be reunited with his family- whom he misses so much.
