All the Pretty Horses

Revealing mistake: When Alejandra comes to John's room the first time you see distinct t-shirt marks on John's upper body, his arms as tanned as his neck and face. This in spite of the fact that he wears long-sleeved shirts throughout the movie (except, of course, during his nightly encounters with Alejandra). (00:49:30)

Revealing mistake: When John and Lacey brand a calf it doesn't even wince when the iron hits the skin. It looks as if in Mexico they do branding under anaesthetic. (00:30:55)

Continuity mistake: After the breaking-in job John gets off a white horse that stands still when he walks off. In the next shot the same horse comes trotting from the direction where John is heading. When John reaches the gate the horse stands again at the same place where John left it. (00:35:45)

John Grady Cole: Lacey once asked me if I though God looks out for people. I guess he does. I say He's just about got to. I don't believe we'd make it a day, otherwise.
