This is where the reality of a location and the reality of what you actually film bites you in the butt. In real-world reality there was a very steep drop-off just beyond the edge of town. When the stage coach and Hiram’s wagon enter town, they are driving along the edge of it; which is why they don’t just come straight into town. When we chose the location, we thought, “Great, we don’t have to use many telegraph poles because they’ll just disappear down in the valley below the drop off.” In fact, on film, you can’t really tell the valley is there, hence, it looks like the poles just stop short. Our bad.
