Corrected entry: When the two bushwhackers, Abe and Lige, get the drop on Josey and Jamie they call back for a third bushwhacker named Benny. No other sign of Josey and Jamie dealing with Benny.

Correction: As you said, they're bushwhackers. Most likely Benny, if he existed, ran when things went south.

Corrected entry: Josey Wales delivers the line, 'Hell with them fellas. Worms have to eat, same as maggots.' then spits on the dead man's forehead. In one shot they show the spit hitting the dead guy's forehead and his eyes are closed. When the camera changes the dead man is blankly staring straight up. (00:40:45)

Correction: Josey Wales delivers the line, 'Hell with them fellas. Buzzards gotta eat, same as worms.' then spits on the dead man's forehead. In one shot they show the spit hitting the dead guy's forehead and his eyes are closed. When the camera changes the dead man is blankly staring straight up.

Corrected entry: The Josey says to Laura, "I'm from Missouri - you'll have to show me." The "show me" line was first publicized in a speech by the Governor of Missouri in 1899, several years after the movie was set.

Correction: That doesn't mean the saying was not in common usage well before the governor said it in a speech, not a mistake.

Corrected entry: Josey Wales opens up on the Red Legs with the gatling gun. In one shot in particular, about six calvary mounted soldiers ride right in front of Wales. Josey easily shoots the soldiers but somehow misses all the horses they were mounted on.

Correction: He is aiming above the horses and hits the men in the chest/head.
