Big Jake

Continuity mistake: In the scene where John Wayne picks up the red box of money he lifts it onto his back and walks to an open door. As he goes out the door the camera moves to outside and we see John Wayne come out of the building. Now the red box is completely on his shoulder, rather than his back.

Revealing mistake: Whenever 'Dog' gets wet (like fording a river) his makeup runs and you can see that he is really 'Lassie'.

Revealing mistake: Early in the movie when the maid is opening the drapes to let in the morning sun, the sun lights the room a half a second before the drapes are actually opened.

Martha McCandles: This is going to be a very harsh and unpleasant business, and will take an equally harsh and unpleasant person to see to it.

Jacob 'Big Jake' McCandles: And now you understand. Anything goes wrong, anything at all... your fault, my fault, nobody's fault... it won't matter - I'm gonna blow your head off. No matter what else happens, no matter who gets killed I'm gonna blow your head off.

Martha McCandles: I was wrong. You haven't changed, have you, Jacob McCandles?
Jacob 'Big Jake' McCandles: Not one bit.

More quotes from Big Jake

Question: At the beginning of the movie I counted 9 bad guys. We only see 1 die, then there are 6 - what happen to the others?

Question: At the beginning of the move it is established that Big Jake has not seen his sons for 10 years, but it appears he is close enough geographically to be found, summoned and arrive before the bad guys can get more than a days' ride away from the ranch. Was he really that bad of a dad or is his arrival at the ranch a bit too magical?

Answer: Jake was a very rough character when he was a younger man, and his wife did not want him around. After the grandson is rescued, the family realises he has changed and they reunite.

Question: What is the weight of the million dollars in $20 bills?

Answer: A U.S. bill weighs roughly 1 gram so that about 454 bills (regardless of denomination) weighs 1 pound. It takes 50,000 $20 bills to equal $1M. Which is about 110 pounds. Of course this is freshly minted weight, so any debris and anything used to secure the bills would increase that weight).
