El Mariachi

Visible crew/equipment: When the guitarist almost gets hit by a bus, you see a shot from inside the bus about what happens outside. If you watch carefully you can see Robert Rodriguez in the rear view mirror holding the camera with a towel on his head.

Revealing mistake: When El Mariachi is trying to escape Moco's men by sliding down a wire onto the bus, he first throws the ball-and-chain-weapon over the wire. But then when he slides down, you can see a pulley device that he is using, not the chain.

Visible crew/equipment: In the last scene of the movie, when El Mariachi is with his bike, just as the camera pans up the shadow of the camera is visible on him.

Trivia: Director Robert Rodriquez spent a month in a clinic as a "test dummy" to earn the money to film the movie. They only had enough film for one shot. Any of the mistakes found are due to the limited budget available, as they couldn't afford to correct themselves.

Trivia: When the Marichi is singing 'Ganas de vivir' in the bar to a full house, Domino is at the bar watching him perform. We then see a customer snap his fingers at her to get her attention, and to get a drink. When she serves him, we see him for the first time. According to the commentary, he is the actual owner of the bar.
