Factual error: The film takes place during the 1840s and features an American Army officer, Capt. Love. The western style hat that Love wears with the crossed swords insignia of the infantry was not used by the US Army until the American Civil War, twenty years later. During the time period of the film, US Army officers wore a soft cap with a bill in front.
Continuity mistake: In the same part, he is now standing on top of the wall. Zorro takes out his whip and wraps it around the tree limb and swings over to the other part of the wall. When he lands on the wall, he takes off running, letting go of the whip. When the camera returns to him running on the wall, he has a new whip, all rolled up in his hand. (00:08:05)
Other mistake: In the ending shots, when the hoist is bringing up the last of the gold to the wagon, why is the wagon covered up if they still have gold to put in it? (01:52:40)
Continuity mistake: Later in the movie when Alejandro is in the cantina, he has a little scuffle with Zorro. When Zorro knocks him over to the wall, he knocks over what looks like stalks of corn rolled up in a bundle into the doorway. In the next shot, when Alejandro moves into the doorway, the bundle of hay is gone. (00:35:30)
