Revealing mistake: After Muney kills Hackman's character and he is leaving town in the torrential downpour, a large circle of white light is illuminating the street in between the buildings. This light cannot possibly be from any natural or earthly source (e.g., it's raining heavily, so no moon; no electricity during this period in history). Without the artificial light, the scene would be completely dark and unviewable.
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.
Trivia: Most movie buffs probably know this, but the mighty Mr. Eastwood is allergic to horses.
Question: Does anyone remember the initial theatrical release or perhaps a Director's Cut version of Unforgiven having Little Bill's (Gene Hackman) final word being "F**k?" It was Little Bill's last word when he realised William Munny was definitely going to kill him? That's the only memory I had of the movie. I just watched it last week and Little Bill didn't say it. Am I crazy for having that memory?
