Continuity mistake: In this scene we see John Wayne and others milking goats. The goats then get startled by a baby elephant and Wayne falls backwards on to the ground and you can see he takes the bowl with his right hand and the milk is thrown out of the bowl. In the next shot of him close up the bowl is on his head like a helmet when the bowl never even went on his head as he fell backwards. (01:09:20)keiko
Factual error: The ribbon of Richard Burton's Distinguished Flying Cross is on upside down. The Air Force Cross following it is the right way up. The stripes on both should point the same way, as they do on the uniform of his colleague in the mess. Nobody would be allowed to get away with a mistake like this - another officer or senior NCO would soon point it out. In addition, as a long-service veteran (his colleague says he served in the Battle of Britain) he should be wearing the ribbon of the 1939-1944 Star (as it was then), which was issued to all qualified personnel from 1943.Necrothesp
Factual error: Somewhat late in this German made western, Lex Barker and company are led into an Indian village, somewhere in (I presume) the Rocky Mountains. You will notice that there are at least two totem poles in this village. The kind of Indians shown dress like Plains Indians, and not like Northwest Indians. Northwest tribes who are found in Washington state, USA, and British Columbia, Canada, are the only tribes with totem poles. Plains Indians did not have totem poles.
Continuity mistake: When Jack is aboard the boat at the end of the film, the dragon drops a rock into the water. The water splashes into the boat soaking everyone. The front of Princess Elane's dress is wet, but in the next couple of shots it is completely dry.
Continuity mistake: The book Geronimo steals from the wagon train is red. When he gives it to his wife it is black.
Continuity mistake: The little motor boat that G. Peck uses appears to have lost its windshield from the time he is driving it to when it is tied up.
