Visible crew/equipment: At one point Clint Eastwood is out in the woods practising his shooting with his new .44 auto-mag pistol. While he's doing this, a car pulls up and a black male begins to get out with a shotgun. (We later learn that this is his partner). As the man with the shotgun is opening his door, if you look at the reflection in the car window, you can clearly see the reflection of a man with a camera and another man standing next to him.

Revealing mistake: In two scenes, at the pistol range to get used to his Automag pistol and in the hotel room when Harry has lost his model 29, S&W and is getting his Automag pistol. In both scenes, Harry picks up the Automag pistol, then a magazine and pushes the magazine into the pistol butt. Both times the magazine has no cartridges in it. You can see the spring through the witness slot on the side of the magazine. The pistol won't fire if there are no cartridges in the magazine.

Revealing mistake: As Harry approaches the Acorn Cafe (which he is about to shoot up), you can see that the two window panes just right of the door are candy glass. This is confirmed when one of the 'heavies' goes flying through them after Harry gives him the .44 Magnum treatment.

Plot hole: During the last gunfight, Harry puts 3 or 4 rounds from his Auto-Mag into Mick, who then falls through the roof of the carousel and impales himself on the unicorn horn. Although it was demonstrated that those .44 rounds would penetrate 1/8 inch steel, none of them made it through Mick's body, as there was an absence of exit wounds in his back.

Factual error: In the final gun battle at the end of the film, Harry shoots the last bad guy so he falls off a high spot on the roller coaster and through the roof, into the carousel building. Yet as the credits roll, there is an aerial shot and you can see the carousel building at the left of the screen, with no hole in the roof. Also, the carousel building and the roller coaster are about 200 yards apart.

Other mistake: When Harry gets to his vacation spot he is greeted by a dog. A few seconds later the dog is seen lifting his leg to pee, showing his dog is a male. Later on in the film after he returns home after the main killer has killed the second victim, the dog is scratching at the door. If you pause the movie at this moment you notice the dog has a sagging belly with nipple's just like a female dog after delivering puppies.

Revealing mistake: When Harry and the man with the hot dog investigates a man shot in the head and balls Harry mouths the line when the man with the hot dog speaks the 4th time.

Jeffy

Continuity mistake: Meathead, the dog, changes from a female to a male dog several times throughout the film.

Continuity mistake: Near the start, just after the robber takes a hostage, Clint holds his gun up and moves his thumb onto the hammer. When it cuts to a reverse angle his thumb's back down, then he moves it up again a few shots later.

Jon Sandys

Continuity mistake: On Harry's way to and from the fish market, it changes from day to night too fast.

Trivia

Clint Eastwood's friend Horace, the black male first seen sneaking up on him with a shotgun is also in other movies with Dirty Harry. His first appearance is the first "punk" where Harry gives his famous "Do you feel lucky...punk?" line to. He also appears in the Enforcer as Mustafa, the black militant leader. He is also in the second, Magnum Force, playing a pimp who is followed in his cadillac with tiger skin seat off the freeway by the corrupt traffic cops. He talks a little to the officer and then, like other dodgy characters in the film, is shot a few times.
