Silverado

Continuity mistake: When Paden and Emmett are camped out you see Emmett pour himself a cup of coffee and he's holding the cup in his hand. The camera angle changes to a shot from behind him and you see him reaching down to pick up his cup of coffee.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Cobb's mean attack Emmitt, Mal shoots one of the men in the hand. The shot pauses long enough to show that hand is quite a cheap, plastic-looking fake prop hand.

Continuity mistake: In Westerns, it is common to use several horses in place of one. However, after Kevin Klein's character makes a huge fuss over his bay, they use 4 different horses with distinctly different markings throughout the movie. They did a better job of matching Kevin Costner's horse although a pinto is a more difficult colour to match. Also, in one scene, Danny Glover's horse changes from a sorrel (red) to a bay (brown).

Question: I am sure that when I watched Silverado many years ago that Cobb's men, after capturing Emmett, used a rock or stone to break the bones in his gun hand to render him harmless. The DVD I have does not have this scene - if it ever existed.

Chosen answer: I first saw this film in a theater, and I don't recall the scene you described. If his hand had been injured that way, the injury would have lasted throughout the entire film and that was not the case. Perhaps you're confusing this with another movie.
