The Outlaw Josey Wales

Revealing mistake: Following their escape from the comancheros, the two wheeled wagon driven by the old woman had a set of reins coming through the slats beneath the seat indicating that the old lady held fake reins and the wagon/horses were controlled by someone inside. Later, when they left the small town and headed to her son's ranch, a little window had been cut out of the slats where the control reins came through, no doubt to improve visibility and horse control.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Laura is being attacked in the desert, the camera swings wildly. During this swing, the entire crew becomes visable for a split second. You can see Clint Eastwood (who also starred in the film) sitting in his director's chair, wearing a white t-shirt and watching the filming closely. (01:19:54)
