Continuity mistake: When the sheriff enters the bar to break up a confrontation between John Elder and Curley, he sends John Elder out of the bar. As Curley starts to follow Elder out, the sheriff tells him to sit down and finish his card game. Elder and Curley were standing facing each other for quite a while before the sheriff came. How would the sheriff know that Curley had been sitting there playing cards? (01:03:00)
Continuity mistake: When the Elders are at the ranch waiting for John to show up, Tom and Bud are talking and Tom has a deck of cards in his hands. When he is talking to Bud you can see that the top card is the 10 of hearts. The shot goes to Bud and when it comes back right away to Tom the top card is now the 3 of hearts.Bill729
Continuity mistake: When the Elders are being escorted from the jail to be taken to Laredo, as they walk out it's a dull day and they don't cast any shadows. When the camera angle changes to the other side of the road, the sun is bright and they all have strong shadows.
