The Virginian (1962)

16 mistakes

Genres: Western

Nan Allen - S9-E14

New this week Continuity mistake: After the fight at the train depot, Colonel MacKenzie's rumpled ascot straightens and reties itself between shots.

Hannah - S9-E13

New this week Continuity mistake: The red draperies framing Hannah's train-window flashback do not even vaguely resemble the drapes seen on the same window in every other shot aboard the train.

Show generally

Character mistake: Season 4, Ep. 29, "Bald-faced Boy": Uncle Del forgets his nephew's name during the argument in the cabin. He calls Brett "Mike," which is neither the actor's name nor that of any of Del's other relatives.

Stopover - S7-E14

Continuity mistake: After Frank locks him in the jail cell, the Virginian stands with his hands holding the bars in full shots, but in close-ups, his arms are extended through the bars in a completely different position.

Bitter Harvest - S5-E25

Character mistake: Set decorator failed English 101 here. The sign over the cemetery gate is misspelled "cemetary."

Deadeye Dick - S5-E9

Character mistake: Bob's father's name is Harry Foley according to Granger and the end credits. But James Drury apparently forgot this in one scene, where the Virginian addresses Harry as "Tom."

Show generally

Continuity mistake: "One Spring Like Long Ago": In the general store, Randy rests his arms on a partition, then takes them down and turns away. The following shot is mismatched: he's immediately leaning on the partition again, without enough time to return to that position.

Show generally

Factual error: "The Return of Golden Tom": The Tedlers' kitchen is a 19th Century redress of a 20th Century set, but still includes a modern sink and faucet fixture where a water pump should be.

Dangerous Road - S3-E26

Continuity mistake: When Trampas and Bob meet Mr. Coulter on the road, their horses are close enough to touch flanks. In the reverse-angle shot, however, they're several feet apart.

Deadeye Dick - S5-E9

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Trampas says, "You can bet no matter what happens, I will be blamed for it," as Sara Lane turns to ride away you can see a Chevy truck for about four seconds. The time left on the counter is between 29 and 28 minutes.

Legacy of Hate - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: Stacey places his hat on the wagon seat before confronting Lee Caulder's men on the street. When he picks the hat up again, it has moved several inches to the right.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: 4-23, "Ride a Cock Horse to Laramie Cross": The dye job on young Clint Howard's hair is inconsistent from scene to scene. It's dark black at the start, but pales to a shade much closer to his natural blond color in many shots later on. His brown make-up (a laughable effort to make a blue-eyed Anglo kid look Hispanic) also varies, and disappears entirely in some of the covered wagon scenes.

Train of Darkness - S8-E18

Continuity mistake: The miniature train used in all the night shots (it passes the same artificial mountainside several times), is pulling three passenger cars and no baggage car. When the full size train arrives at the station the next day, it has a baggage car and only one passenger car.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: 4-26, "The Wolves Up Front, the Jackals Behind." Randy walks into the blacksmith's barn with a guitar strapped to his back. When he steps inside in the very next shot, the guitar has disappeared.

Show generally

Visible crew/equipment: "The Return of Golden Tom": When a drunken Amos Coe staggers into the saloon, a large rectangular blocking mark is visible on the floor.

Deadeye Dick - S5-E9

Plot hole: The circuit judge arrives on the stagecoach and complains that the railroad has no spur line to Medicine Bow. But the town has had a railroad connection and station all along: it's seen in nearly every episode, including the opening and closing scenes of this one.
