The Shattered Idol - S4-E10

Revealing mistake: Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain) spends a night in North Fork while the wheel of a stagecoach he is riding in is being repaired. Clemens is fishing at a lake and Mark McCain says, "You've caught a fish " Clemens tells the boy to reel in the fish. The boy jerks the rod and pulls the fish out of the water. The fish is obviously a fake which a stagehand had attached to the hook. The fish is motionless and is not even wet.

Continuity mistake: During the street fight, Gene Barry's stunt double wears a shaggy wig that gets badly disheveled in the brawl. In the intercut close-ups of "Bat" throwing punches, however, Barry's hair is short and neatly groomed. (00:06:00)
