Revealing mistake: When McCullough is discussing Prudy's oddities with the matronly lady out front of the mayor's house, it is obvious that the lady is standing on a dirt-covered concrete sidewalk.

Visible crew/equipment: During the closing scene, just as the deputy starts to walk towards the right of the screen, if you look between the two buildings, you can see the top of what appears to be a bus riding by.

Character mistake: When the mayor invites the new sheriff into his house, he calls out for his daughter, Prudy. But calls out "Trudy" several times instead. Later in the film he corrects himself.

Continuity mistake: When the Danby clan rides into town to get Joe out of jail, they ride up to the sheriff's office and get down from their horses. Pa Danby sends his other 2 sons inside to "get Joe." They come just three seconds later and all of the horses are gone. (01:22:10)

Suggested correction: The Danby Clan ties up the horses in front of the saloon, not the jail. Pa sends his two sons into the saloon to buy drinks while he goes across the street to get Joe. When the camera pulls back to show Pa Danby crossing the street, the horses are visible on the left side of the screen.

You are thinking of an earlier scene in the movie when Pa Danby firsts confronts the sheriff. The scene I was talking about was at the end of the movie when the entire Danby clan rides into town to "Get Joe."


Continuity mistake: Walter Burke leaves the balcony last, but has moved forward one place when the view switches to inside. Also, the closed door has partly opened. (00:05:50)
