Continuity mistake: Swayze and his new landlord are standing near the horse corral talking. His landlord says "Calling me sir, is like putting an elevator, in an outhouse, don't belong. I'm Emmitt". Swayze says "I'm Dalton". Notice Swayze has his eyes open normally and fully when they shake hands. In the second shot of the same handshake, the sun suddenly glares, and Swayze is suddenly squinting in the bright light. Weather don't move that fast, folks. (00:20:45)
