Revealing mistake: In the scene at the end of the movie where Lee Marvin is running interference during the escape by shooting in the air, horses pulling a beer wagon get startled and run into the street where the wagon turns over.

He is sitting low behind the wooden front of the wagon (which has holes cut in it so he can see out).

The Party's Over picture

Revealing mistake: When Phil kills himself by throwing himself off the roof, in the shot of him supposedly hitting the ground it is painfully obvious that it is a dummy. Not only does it hit the ground completely rigidly but the wig on it even noticeably flies off on impact.
