Posse (1975)

Other mistake: There's a horse that has apparently ridden up a cliff, and an electrical burning brand that can be changed onto different flame settings.

Bite the Bullet picture

Continuity mistake: Near the end, Sam Clayton is nearing the finish. The audio leads you to believe that the horse is breathing VERY hard, but when the camera shows the horse, the nostrils are NOT flared as they would be on a horse that has been run to exhaustion (or even down the block). Also, the people filming this scene obviously have no clue about the nature of sweating in horses. They showed "lather" all through the horse's mane. The ONLY places horses will lather while sweating is where something is rubbing, i.e. underneath the saddle, the bridle or breast collar, where the reins rub on the neck or between their back legs.

Breakheart Pass picture

Continuity mistake: When John Deakin discovers the Reverend's body in the coffin, the Reverend's eyes are closed in one shot and open in the next.

Rooster Cogburn picture

Factual error: On their journey, Rooster is bragging about his navy colts, when actually his sidearm is a Colt .45 Peacemaker, also known as an Army Colt M1873.
