Continuity mistake: When Paris is offering all the other prisoners half of his hidden money for a way to escape, he lays down in his bed with his cigar in his mouth and his arms at his side. The camera angle changes to a wide shot of the holding cell and the cigar is now in his right hand near the edge of the bed.

Continuity mistake: The third time we see the stagecoach on its way to Denver, it's passing the exact same tree and hill that it passed at the start of its journey. It's also traveling on a paved road, which in 1860s frontier Colorado is extremely unlikely. (00:11:15)

Continuity mistake: When the Bannister gang begins shooting at the house, the ladies abandon their breakfast to run and hide upstairs. There's a pitcher half full of milk on the table. But a few shots later, when one of the Bannisters bursts into the kitchen, the milk pitcher is empty, and the dishes are in different positions on the table. (01:23:55)
