Continuity mistake: Indians are on a hilltop and a jet vapour trail can be seen in the sky.

Continuity mistake: In the scene at The Yellow River where the Indians are chasing Gregory Peck and the gang of Omar Sharif on their way to the draft, you can see the same sequence with some trees (filmed with the camera holding up) twice within a second. (01:26:15)

Continuity mistake: In the final scene, after escaping the earthquake, you can see Camilla Sparv jumping across a gap with her horse shortly followed by Gregory Peck. You can see the clouds changing very fast within a split second. (01:57:30)

Continuity mistake: When Gregory Peck and Camilla Sparv are climbing the rock ladder at "Cañón Del Oro", you can see that they are climbing the same piece of ladder over and over again. They do it 3 times. (01:48:45)

Question: Did Omar Shariff make it out of the collapsing rock canyon alive? I missed the ending.

Answer: Colorado and MacKenna both make it out of the canyon alive and then go their separate ways. The gold was buried in the collapse, but McKenna is seen riding off on Sgt. Tibbs horse. The saddle bag is stuffed with gold nuggets.
