Audio problem: When we see the can-can dancers perform on-stage, the music is played by a full band including brass and drums, despite the fact that there's only a pianist on-stage.

Character mistake: The bartender's (Robert Mitchum's brother John) character's name is Elmer. When JP goes to the bar to get Jason, Elmer makes a move for a gun behind the bar. JP shoots the bar, resulting in Elmer getting a fist full of splinters. JP says "I told you Elmer..." At the end when JP runs through the bar, he points the gun at Elmer and says "stay right there, Johnny."

Suggested correction: He says "Freeze it right there, Johnny!" but the shot is focused on him and there's no indication he's talking to the bartender. There a a number of Jason's men in the saloon. One of them must be named Johnny.

Other mistake: In the very last scene of the movie, and just before Blondie shoots the rope that is holding Tuco on the grave's cross. You can see a car moving in the background, screen right of Tuco's head.

Revealing mistake: In the last scene, when Chris is leaving, it shows several shots of the peaceful village. Each time they show the village, in the middle of the square is what looks like two boys fighting. One punches the other and he falls down and gets up and punches back and he falls down. They do that about three times.

Revealing mistake: In some of the shots showing the muddy town street, tracks from modern rubber tires can be seen.
