Corrected entry: In the morning scene where the shadow moves to point the way to the opening of the canyon; it is moving away from the rock that makes the shadow. It should be getting shorter not longer.

Correction: Actually, the morning sun reflected off of the quartz deposit would cause the shadow to get longer as time progresses. I tried it. The writers are correct.

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)

Question: I thought sunglasses weren't invented until the late 1920s?

Answer: Have to say, I have not seen movie, but to answer your question, one of the earliest surviving depictions of a person wearing sunglasses is of the scientist Antoine Lavoisier in 1772.
