Continuity mistake: The white handkerchief in the breast pocket of McCready's dark suit, which he wears throughout the film, changes position in just about every indoor/studio shot when it cuts to an outside shot. At one point it disappears altogether.
Revealing mistake: Whilst Spencer Tracy is driving the Jeep through the desert at high speed, during one of the long shots the rough terrain causes the vehicle to bounce violently; if you look carefully you can just make out the stunt-driver's "missing" arm coming out from beneath his jacket to help wrestle with the steering wheel.James McPeake 1
Doc T.R. Velie Jr.: Why did you come here, Mr. Macreedy?
John J. Macreedy: Did Komoko have any other family besides his son Joe?
Doc T.R. Velie Jr.: Son? Nobody around here ever knew he had a son.
John J. Macreedy: Yes, he had a son. He's dead too. He's buried in Italy... Why, this Komoko boy died trying to save my life. They gave him a medal. I came here to give it to his old man. I figured the least I could do was give him one day out of my life.
