Pale Rider

Revealing mistake: After the cowboys have terrorized the village at the beginning, the girl finds her dead dog and starts crying, when she picks it up it's painfully obvious it's a stuffed toy.

Revealing mistake: In the scene just before the huge nugget Spider is holding gets shot in two, if you look closely you can see the line down the centre where the two halves break.

Continuity mistake: When the Preacher is tossing dynamite into a barracks shack, a bad guy stumbles out and drops a rifle on the steps, where it lands leaning on the them. In the next view, it's disappeared, then it reappears several feet away, lying flat on the ground.

Eddie Conway: It was him. Him and his men. They shot him. Forever. The bullets kept hitting him. Forever.

More quotes from Pale Rider

Question: What does "Spider" pull out of the stream bed? I really don't think it's gold. Gold isn't porous, and I don't think he'd be able to hold it with one hand.

Answer: It's a gold nugget. It is not real gold, of course, but is a movie prop. That is why it looks like some other type of substance.
