Hang 'Em High

Revealing mistake: Near the end, Clint Eastwood is sneaking up on a house at night. The old guy (Ed Begley Sr) shoots at Eastwood repeatedly until his gun is empty as Eastwood dodges from tree to tree. Just before running directly to the house, there is a strange black circle that completely covers Eastwood for a few seconds. It is very obvious and no reason why it should be there.

Revealing mistake: Towards the end of the film when the old guy (Ed Begley Sr) is shooting a rifle at Clint Eastwood, the thumb of his left hand is on the top of the barrel, preventing him from seeing the front sight.

Revealing mistake: In the second hanging scene (with the speech of the whisky) Clint Eastwood is looking at the judge's window and he sees him watching. If you look at the window, you will she a big shiny circle over it, probably from the flashlight.

Revealing mistake: Towards the end of the credits, on the highest mountain peak, you will see an air traffic light flash twice.

Judge Adam Fenton: Nineteen marshals and one court to commandeer 70,000 square miles. A happy hunting ground filled with bushwackers, horse thieves, whiskey peddlers, counterfeiters, hide peelers, marauders - they'd kill you for a hat band. Now that's why there's a badge in my desk, Cooper, itching to sit on somebody's chest... and no takers.
