Best western movie revealing mistakes of all time

Man from Snowy River 2 picture

Revealing mistake: After Jim's horse is shot from under him while running down the really steep hill, and Jim later regains consciousness, before he turns and finds his horse dead, if you watch closely you can see the horse still breathing.

The Mask of Zorro picture

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Captain Love and Antonio Banderas (as Zorro) meet in the hallway of the hacienda, two guards rush down the hallway and drop their rifles and swords. Zorro asks them to bend over and then proceed to kick/nudge them out the window. If you watch carefully, you'll notice that the guard on the right (furthest from Zorro) reacts to the kick too early.

Revealing mistake: In one of Pickett's charge scene the bayonets are obviously rubber.

Jeremiah Johnson picture

Revealing mistake: Although the film is set during the aftermath of the Mexican War (1848-50), the mountain vistas display some lovely radio towers and fire ranger stations.

Tombstone picture

Revealing mistake: When Wyatt Earp and the actress, whom he marries later in the movie, meet on horseback, they go on a fast paced ride that concludes after going down a steep hill. If you look at the actress' feet, you will see she is riding side-saddle - a very difficult feat considering the riding they do. If you look closely you can see her real leg, safely on the other side of the horse. The side-saddle leg must be fake.

Young Guns picture

Revealing mistake: In the final scene as Doc tell Billy good-bye if you look up to the top right hand corner of the screen you can clearly see a jet trail in the blue sky. Certainly not possible in those days.

Back to the Future Part III picture

Revealing mistake: At the end, when the train destroys the time machine, right at the moment when it hits you can see a small explosion, which was used to trigger the destruction of the time machine.

Dances with Wolves picture

Revealing mistake: In the extended version of the film during the buffalo hunt, there is a shot of a buffalo making a turn and in the distant horizon, you can briefly see a modern radio tower on top of a hill.

Shanghai Noon picture

Revealing mistake: This mistake occurs in the beginning of the film where the bandits rob the train. When Jackie is standing on the coal (or was it wood?) car you can see the train is passing a modern sign (you can see it on the right).

Unforgiven picture

Revealing mistake: In the jail scene, Gene Hackman is reading from a book. When he turns the book too far towards the camera you catch a glimpse of his lines on brighter white paper attached inside the book.

Pale Rider picture

Revealing mistake: After the cowboys have terrorized the village at the beginning, the girl finds her dead dog and starts crying, when she picks it up it's painfully obvious it's a stuffed toy.

Westward the Women picture

Revealing mistake: After the Indians have attacked the wagon train Robert Taylor returns to see the devastation. When they call out the names of the dead we see a close up of each person and some of the "dead" are breathing.

Little Big Man picture

Revealing mistake: During the Little Bighorn massacre one of Custer's lieutenants turns to address Custer and is struck in the back with an arrow, and the thick pad or board is visible under the actor's shirt.

Maverick picture

Revealing mistake: When Maverick is pulling the dead stage coach driver up to the roof of the coach, watch the driver's right hand - he grabs the railing to help push himself up to the roof.

Wild Wild West picture

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Will Smith first jumps aboard the rear of Loveless's train, as he climbs onto the roof of it you can see contrails from a jet aeroplane in the sky (top left).

Support Your Local Sheriff picture

Revealing mistake: When McCullough is discussing Prudy's oddities with the matronly lady out front of the mayor's house, it is obvious that the lady is standing on a dirt-covered concrete sidewalk.

Tremors 4: The Legend Begins picture

Revealing mistake: At the end of the movie, when the last "Graboid" appears, in one or two shots of him retracting back into the ground, you can tell the shots are reversed, as dirt is being sucked down in an unnatural way. It flies up and sort of "implodes" towards the creature.

Hang 'Em High picture

Revealing mistake: Near the end, Clint Eastwood is sneaking up on a house at night. The old guy (Ed Begley Sr) shoots at Eastwood repeatedly until his gun is empty as Eastwood dodges from tree to tree. Just before running directly to the house, there is a strange black circle that completely covers Eastwood for a few seconds. It is very obvious and no reason why it should be there.

Blazing Saddles picture

Revealing mistake: When Mongo wakes up and breaks free of the chains, in the shot where he breaks free, the chains suddenly shift position and some even disappear. This is because the camera was stopped and the chains were replaced with fake break always before the camera was restarted. Another way to see this is because the water that dripping down Mongo's face suddenly stops.

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers picture

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Milly is singing Wonderful Day and the bird come flying past her, their shadow falls on the "hills" behind them.

The Legend of Zorro picture

Revealing mistake: During the shoot out with McGivens's gang at the Cortez ranch, the wife of Cortez sneaks out of the trap door with her baby and peers around the side of the building. You can notice that the baby is really a doll.

The Alamo picture

Revealing mistake: When Crockett, Bowie and their men are about to destroy the giant cannon, several of the men are standing right next to it at the moment one of them tosses the torch on the touch hole. Then, there's a big flash at the touchhole. In the very next shot, right before the cannon explodes, we see the cannon, but everyone has disappeared. There was no time for them to flee completely out of sight.

For a Few Dollars More picture

Revealing mistake: During the "dream sequence", Indio shoots the young man several times, yet there's neither blood nor bullet holes on his shirt, front or back.

Add time

The Big Country picture

Revealing mistake: When McKay and Ramon are riding into Blanco Canyon to rescue Julie, you can see a diesel loading shovel with its bucket raised in the bottom of the frame of one of the scenic shots. Presumably the scene was shot in a quarry and they didn't get all the equipment out.

Add time

El Mariachi picture

Revealing mistake: When El Mariachi is trying to escape Moco's men by sliding down a wire onto the bus, he first throws the ball-and-chain-weapon over the wire. But then when he slides down, you can see a pulley device that he is using, not the chain.

xx:xx:xx

Rio Bravo picture

Revealing mistake: The bullet hole gouge in the window frame near Ricky Nelson and the outward facing splinters at the bullet hole in the door frame near John Wayne indicate exit holes.

Add time

Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid picture

Revealing mistake: In the opening sequence when Sundance shoots the gun belt off the card player, the film was cut to make the quick draw appear faster. You can see Butch's image jump across the screen in the background.
