Fort Apache

Factual error: After the first encounter with the Apaches, the covered wagon is headed to the Fort at full speed. The camera pans to the Apaches on the ridge and you can see a truck driving at the bottom right corner. (00:32:00)

Continuity mistake: A group of new recruits is introduced to horseriding. One spindly volunteer gallops off first, but when we see him from behind he has been replaced by a stuntman of about twice his width. (00:44:10)

Continuity mistake: When Col. Thursday skips his dinner because an alarm came in he apologizes to Phil. While they are talking Phil's purse appears in her hands from one shot to the next. (00:36:15)
