Revealing mistake: When the parted Red Sea comes together, if you look behind Pharaoh as his troops are being engulfed by the water, notice in the background that there are two boulders floating in the water, not being pushed, but floating lightly.
Continuity mistake: In the final shot, just as the credits are rolling, the British warships are sailing away with the sun setting behind them. In an earlier scene the radio commentator says that the sun is setting and a shot of the sun touching the surface of the sea is shown.
Factual error: Towards the middle of the movie when when the British submarine leaves port with the Man Who Never Was onboard, it is flying what appears to be an American flag. The flag is visible for about ten seconds and if you look closely, you can see the field of blue of the stars and stripes in the upper corner.Marshall Murray
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Van Gogh cuts his ear off, he smothers his right ear with a towel to stop the bleeding. As the movie continues, we notice that throughout the whole movie his left ear was the one missing not the right ear as initially portrayed.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Robert Wagner and Buddy Ebsen are in a fox hole note the position of the bullets in their boxes. One lot is further away from the pole holding the shade canopy and in a closer shot it's now changed position and closer to the other bullets. The shot then changes again and the bullets are back to their original position as seen earlier. (01:19:25 - 01:20:50)keiko
Continuity mistake: Milly is on the balcony with Mr. Hanson. The sliding glass doors behind them are not fully open and the drapes are drawn well past the door opening. When Mr. Hanson stands up, the camera cuts for a closer shot and the sliding glass door is now fully open and the drape is drawn to the door opening. (00:56:00)
Continuity mistake: The opening scene states the date as April 10th 1865, the day of the train station robbery. Siringo tells Vance at the school money-raising event that the robbery took place 8 weeks ago, but when Clint is buried at the end, his death is April 25th 1865, only 2 weeks after the robbery.
