Plot hole: The judge asks Jed Cooper if he would like to see what McCloud looks like, (McCloud is the killer who cheated him and murdered the rancher), as he is being hanged. Of course since Jed Cooper had previously purchased the cattle from McCloud, he knew what he looked like. (00:10:00 - 00:15:00)
Continuity mistake: At the beginning, Eastwood dismounts from his horse to rescue the calf lying in the river. His horse is left standing in the river with the water up to his knees. When Eastwood places the calf on dry land, his horse is standing nearby. The horse's legs are dry.
Jed Cooper: You're lynching those boys. Why?
Judge Adam Fenton: Why? Because of you, Cooper. Because of that beautiful, that magnificent journey you took to bring three killers to justice. Because if the law didn't hang them, the next posse that goes out will say, "Hang 'em and hang 'em high, there's no justice in Fort Grant." And if there's no justice in Fort Grant, Cooper, there will be no statehood for this territory.
