Character mistake: When Eastwood is trying to mount the horse for the first time he is pulling on the inside rein, which makes the horse turn away from him. Even a child of that time would know to pull on the outside rein to make the horse turn into you.
Factual error: During the confrontation between Little Bill and English Bob outside the barber shop, all the Deputies cocked their guns - for emphasis. Then Mr. Beauchamp reaches into his bag to show that he only has books, the Deputies cock their guns again. With the rifles they have this would eject the shell that was in the barrel and cycle a new one. It doesn't.
Bill Munny: You better bury Ned right, and don't go cuttin' up... Nor otherwise harm no whores, or I'll come back and kill every one of you sons-a-bitches.
Trivia: The movie is supposedly set in early summer (July 4th and thereabout) yet autumn leaves, and at one time a morning snowfall, are seen throughout the film. The movie was actually filmed in southern Alberta during September and October.
