Other mistake: Dunbar has to race back to the fort in the middle of having a shave. The amount of soap on his face alters shot to shot.
Lt. Elgin: Spivy! You bash that prisoner one more time, I'll put those shackles on you.
Trivia: For his portrait of the Indians (which was radically different from all the earlier movies), Costner was made an honorary tribe member of the real-life Sioux.
Question: Neither Dunbar nor the non-commissioned officer he talks to just before he makes his suicide run at the beginning of the film appear to have to trouser stripe common to officers and non-commissioned officers. Shouldn't they as part of the Union uniform of the era?
