El Dorado

Factual error: The town of El Dorado is located in Texas, as evidenced by the Texas county map on the wall in the County Sheriff's office. However, while on their journey to the town, Thornton and Mississippi shoot at Saugaro Cact, which is only found in the Sonoran Desert in what was then Arizona Territory.

Factual error: Josephine, shooting from above, hits Thornton somewhere around his hips, in the area of his lower thoracic or upper lumbar region. The bullet is never removed, and Thornton has trouble later with his right hand going numb. A bullet pressing on the spinal cord in the area where he got shot would impact his legs and feet, not his arms and hands.

Factual error: John Wayne and James Caan are in the gunsmiths shop, and behind the gunsmith on the shelf are some products, one of these products is Bugler tobacco. Bugler tobacco was introduced in the United States in 1932.

Trivia

El Dorado is actually part of a remake trilogy by the same director, Howard Hawks. The first was 'Rio Bravo' (1959); 'El Dorado' was next in 1967; and the final variation was 'Rio Lobo' in 1970. El Dorado is the only humorous (and by many critics acclaimed as the best) version of the three.
