Corrected entry: John Wayne is standing on frount porch of ranch house smoking a cigar and speaking to his niece who is visting from the East. He takes the cigar from his in his left hand and attempts to open a pocket watch. If you watch carefully you can see him flinch as the lit cigar burns his left hand.

Correction: Most people would flinch when burned with a lit cigar. It's not a mistake, but an example of less-than-perfect coordination, something that happens every day in real life, to real people.


Other mistake: The steer horn that penetrates Forrest Tucker near the end of the movie is at right angles to the rest of the steer horn.

James Pepper: You know, there's an old saying, Miss Sally. There's no law west of Dodge and no God west of the Pecos. Right, Mr. Chisum?
John Simpson Chisum: Wrong, Mr. Pepper. Because no matter where people go, sooner or later there's the law. And sooner or later they find God's already been there.
