Other mistake: There is a scene where a dead Indian warrior is discovered. In this scene he is covered by a large flat piece of stone. When they pull away the stone you can see his chest rising and falling as the "dead" Indian breathes. Much easier to see when viewed in HD.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where John Wayne is looking down at the arrow that Look has left, his moccasin is all brown. In the next shot, his moccasin is partially opened on the side, revealing his sock.

Revealing mistake: In the scene right after they leave Scar's wigwam, when Ethan and Martin are speaking to each other around their camp you are able to see a small brown dot right above the sandy hills. This dot is the character Debbie's head while she is waiting for her cue before she runs in to the scene.

Question: Is the buckskin horse Martin is riding when they go on the search for the girls the same horse that he rode to death in the scene before?

Question: I remember seeing a version of this movie many years ago and in it, either during or right after the attack on Scar's camp, the Reverend Clayton (Ward Bond) falls from his horse and onto his backside into a pile of cactus. Current versions do not have this scene. A search of the internet finds no mention of this but there is a scene that is consistent with what I remember seeing. W see the Reverend bent over with his pants down and Charlie McCorry (Ken Curtis) tending to what appears to be a wound on the Reverend's butt. Without what I remember seeing, this scene is completely meaningless. Does anyone remember the cactus scene or am I imagining things?

Chosen answer: There was no cactus. A young inexperienced cavalry man, played by Patrick Wayne, constantly holds up his saber, which Ward Bond tells him to put away, before he hurts someone. After the battle, someone asks if he got injured by the Indians. Ward angrily replies "It wasn't the Indians" and looks at Patrick, who has a look of embarrassment.
