Tombstone

Revealing mistake: When Wyatt Earp and the actress, whom he marries later in the movie, meet on horseback, they go on a fast paced ride that concludes after going down a steep hill. If you look at the actress' feet, you will see she is riding side-saddle - a very difficult feat considering the riding they do. If you look closely you can see her real leg, safely on the other side of the horse. The side-saddle leg must be fake.

Revealing mistake: When Wyatt and the others leave two cowboys hanging in front of the Dragoon Saloon, you can see that neither man actually has a rope on his neck. As the one man swings around, on his vest you can see the outline of the rope going straight down into the harness that's holding him. (01:25:35)

Suggested correction: The two men are already dead when strung up. The shot is not of a hanging, it's of displaying two dead "cowboys". Therefore, the rope need not be around their necks.

So they go to the trouble of fashioning a harness instead of just hanging a rope around their necks?

The rope was made to outwardly appear as if it's a simple noose, whether or not it was the cur's death by actual hanging. The outline, however, that we can see under the clothes reveals that the noose part of the rope goes all the way down his back into a stunt safety harness, under the man's clothes. To think that Wyatt and his men would have removed the man's clothing to configure a custom harness to go around the man, then redressed him, and finally strung him up for display, is ridiculous. The correction is rubbish, and the mistake is valid IMHO.

Revealing mistake: When Morgan dies his eyes are wide open. As Wyatt lays him down rolling his head to the side Morgan's eyes continue to focus at the ceiling instead of turning with the motion of his head as dead eyes would do.

Revealing mistake: In the "showdown" scene between Johnny Ringo and Doc Holliday, a close up of Johnny's eyes reveals the visible outer edges of contact lens.
