Suggested correction: It's not a radio tower. It leans to one side and also the line goes almost to the creek bed. When the troops come back after getting ambushed it's not in the picture anymore.

I'm watching the movie now and I saw the radio tower in the background and I saw no wires and the tower doesn't lean.

Suggested correction: It isn't a tower at all, it's a flaw in the film. As the scene continues, at one point you can see it kind of shake or move a little. It's just a line or flaw on the film itself, it's not a radio tower or anything in the background.

Factual error: When Hondo is introduced to the young cavalry lieutenant, Buffalo Baker remarks that it is 1870. Later, when the survivors return to the ranch, they claim to have killed Victorio; however, Victorio was actually killed in 1880 in Mexico, by Mexican troops.

Suggested correction: They are talking about when "Victorio" the Indian chief dies. In the movie though the Indian chief is "Vittorio" he is a fictional character. So you can't compare his death to the real Victorio.

When Mrs. Lowe sees Vitoria for first time he says his name is Victorio.

Hondo Lane: You baked today. Smell fresh bread on you. And top of that you smell all over like a woman, rich and warm and soft. I could find you in the dark Mrs. Lowe.

Hondo Lane: How is he?
Buffalo Baker: He'll make out. Don't know much. Led us into an ambush. But I ain't ashamed of him nohow. Bullet holes are in the front of him.
Hondo Lane: All those youngsters from the Point are like that.
Buffalo Baker: Well, they gotta learn.
Hondo Lane: Partly they learn, partly they die. But I gotta float my stick same as you, I never saw one of 'em I had to be ashamed of.
