Factual error: When Gene Hackman is shot at the end he looks down and sees the hole in his shadow. However if he was shot from someone at the same level as him, the hole would be straight, parallel to the Earth's surface. So if he could he the reasonably proportioned shadow the angle of the sun wouldn't show any hole in him at all.
Factual error: In the scene just before Harrod fights Ace Handlin, we see a view of Harrod's feet passing a blood stain in the dirt. This bright red color would be impossible when mixed with the dirt. Also we are led to believe that fights happen on the hour, each hour. The blood would have coagulated and been nothing but a dark spot on the ground. This has obviously been done to emphasize that the ground is bloody.geoffrey schick 1
