City Slickers

Visible crew/equipment: During the scene where Cookie is drunk and takes off in the covered wagon, if you look under Cookie's seat you can see a person in a dark shirt inside the wagon. It can't be one of the movie characters because when he heads towards the cliff, he's the only one who jumps out of the wagon and in the next scene only the horses are buried.

Visible crew/equipment: In the stampede scene, just as the cattle are coming over the hill towards Curly and his revolver, a helicopter blade (from the crew's helicopter) is seen rising just behind the cattle, on the left half of the screen. (Widescreen DVD.)

Continuity mistake: During the scene where Billy Crystal and Jack Palance are riding and talking about the "one thing", notice that Jack Palance's cigarette has a huge ash, then has just been lit, then has a huge ash again.

Question: After they pull Mitch from the river they say something that sounds like "Mick werts", what did they actually say, and what does it mean?

Answer: Mitch says "nice catch, it was like Mays in the ‘54 World Series." To which they reply "Vic Wertz." Wertz was the Cleveland Indians player that hit the ball into the outfield that New York Giants player Willie Mays spectacularly caught.
