The War Wagon

New this month Other mistake: Bandoleer rounds don't fit any weapon in the show. When Pierce tries the Gatling gun, there is no magazine in it.

Revealing mistake: At the end after the driver of the wagon has fallen off and the horses are running wild you can see a slot in the front of the seat and arms holding the reins.

Continuity mistake: While every other actor in this movie wears the same costume day and night, day after day, John Wayne's costume changes regularly, even between shots. For all daytime scenes, he wears an orange long-sleeved shirt with a contrasting blue neck-kerchief; in some night-time scenes, he wears a blue long-sleeved shirt with a contrasting yellow neck-kerchief; and sometimes his daytime neck-kerchief changes from blue to yellow in a matter of seconds, between shots.

Taw Jackson: How's that?
Lomax: Two five-hundred dollar days for the price of one.

Frank Pierce: Get fresh horses - I want you in Rondado before sun-up. Find Lomax. I want him to kill Taw Jackson. I'll pay him anything he wants.

Hammond: Hell, Mr. Pierce, we'd be willing to do it for a lot less than ten thousand dollars.
Frank Pierce: If you could! Lomax is the one man that can, so get moving.
