For a Few Dollars More

Revealing mistake: During the "dream sequence", Indio shoots the young man several times, yet there's neither blood nor bullet holes on his shirt, front or back.

Revealing mistake: After Manco beats up Cavanaugh and places Cavanaugh's back up against the bar, while Manco faces him, three of Cavanaugh's henchmen appear at the entrance of the bar demanding that Cavanaugh be released. Manco turns around and kills all of them with his pistol, while Cavanaugh falls to the floor crawling toward his gun. Manco is walking toward the entrance of the saloon with his back to Cavanaugh. Manco draws his gun and kills Cavanaugh without looking at him. If you look closely at the tip end of the pistol, you can see that the only thing that Manco would have killed was the saloon floor.

Revealing mistake: While Lee Van Cleef is browsing the news-journal, we first see a front page, followed by 6 identical consequent pairs of pages and then again the same front page from before. Also, the text doesn't seem to be text at all. (00:48:10)

Revealing mistake: About an hour and a half into the movie Clint Eastwood forces a telegraph guy to send a fake message saying the bank is being robbed, in a nearby town - as a ruse. In the next scene, when the posse rides down a dirt road,you can see tire tracks as they are all coming down a hill and going around a bend.

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning when Lee Van Cleef looks at the the wanted poster on the ticket booth at Tucumcari (just after getting off the train), there are two extra zero's drawn onto the poster (as added by the villain). Van Cleef then takes this poster away with him, and slots it under the door of a hotel room on a later scene - notice that the additional zero's have since disappeared from the same poster.

Monco: You mind telling me how you got here?
Col. Douglas Mortimer: I just reasoned it out. I figured you'd tell Indio to do just exactly the opposite of what we agreed, and he's suspicious enough to figure out something else. Since El Paso was out of the question, well, here I am.
