Open Range

Trivia: When the movie first opens up, you see this big green scenery with cows coming out of the bottom corner of the screen. In the widescreen version there is a cow, or bull rather, getting a little frisky with one of the cows there. It lasts for only about a second, and you can see that one of them is up a little higher than the others so it stands out.

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning of the movie, after the rainstorm, Charlie and Mose are digging and flopping around in the mud to get the wagon out of the hole. They are both covered in mud. As soon as they get the wagon out of the hole, Button says "Here comes Boss". As Boss rides up, Charlie is removing his gloves, which are now dry and free of mud.

Question: When Baxter and his men ride into town, he brings 8 hired guns with him for a total of 9; but when the fight starts, there are only 8. Baxter and 4 men confront Charlie and Boss, in the street, and 3 go round behind the buildings. What happened to the 9th man?

Answer: I noticed this as well. The person shot at the end of the film is the same man that was with the sheriff when they were held in the jail. He was a deputy and did not ride in with the land baron.

Answer: I believe he is the one being chased by the townfolks, after the gunfight is over.
