What alway amuses me about this film is the JW-Victor McLagen fight.

In reality Wayne wouldn't have stood a chance against McLagen, dispite the latter being considerably older (old enough to have served in the Great War).
McLagen had been a heavyweight boxer of some repute, to the extent of going Five rounds (I think it was) with the then reigning World Champion heavyweight - Jack Johnson - and walking out of the ring afterward.
