Corrected entry: During the last scene, when it showed the hundreds of horses running in the field, it appeared that there was a person holding on to a horse's tail and being dragged on the ground as the horse ran.
Corrected entry: When Frank is handcuffed to the pole after he is yelled at for having Jazira in his tent and the people come and attack the place where they are, there is a shot of Jazira trying to help him out of the cuffs. When they show his hands, it is so obvious that they are not his real hands. They look much younger than Frank really is. There are other scenes where you see his hands and they are completely different. How difficult is it to use the same actors hands for a single shot?
Corrected entry: The first rider to fall out of the race has a horse that trips and skins its "knee". The rider then kills it and kisses it near the eye. The horse blinks several times. (00:45:15)
Corrected entry: Watch one of the racers as he looks through a telescope during the first part of the race. He lowers the telescope, then turns it to himself and tries to shorten/close it by pushing it against his hand. He misses the first time, the telescope going past his hand and brushing along his torso. Then he quickly gets it right.redbaron2000
Corrected entry: When Hidalgo falls into the stake trap and gets a stake through his leg, he wouldn't be able to put much weight on it. When a leopard attacks Hidalgo, he rears up on his hind feet. When he puts his front feet down again, if you watch, he puts his right, front leg down first just about every time. If Hidalgo was really injured then he wouldn't put his right leg down first because it takes more weight.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Frank is playing the drunken clown and loses control of Hidalgo, Hidalgo flips Frank off of him and into the audience. When this happens, Frank's hat falls off and you see it on the ground, but when Frank comes out of the stands, his hat is magically back on his head.
Corrected entry: When Frank is first learning about the race the guy with the head dress is wearing contacts. You can tell when he lifts his head up and the light shines on his face, you can see a perfect ring around his eyes. I didn't think they had contacts in the 1890's.
