Revealing mistake: During Cole and Mississippi's night patrol, a bunch of horsemen start making a fuss in the street. When Mississippi dives under their horses, there is an interruption between when he dives, and when he (supposedly) lies in the horses' path. Evidently, this scene was made by joining two cuts.
Sheriff J. P. Harrah: What the hell are you doin' here?
Cole: I'm lookin' at a tin star with a... drunk pinned on it.
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.
