Revealing mistake: Although the film is set during the aftermath of the Mexican War (1848-50), the mountain vistas display some lovely radio towers and fire ranger stations.
Other mistake: During the ‘rescue' mission to save the trapped wagon train, none of the riders are carrying packs of food or any supplies. One man is carrying a military unit banner on a pole. Unrealistic for this type of activity.
Continuity mistake: Jeremiah Johnson acquires two horses at the beginning of the movie, one completely black, and one almost completely brown. A few minutes later, Jeremiah Johnson is seen riding a horse that is different than the two he just acquired. The new horse is distinguished by his near entirely white face. (00:07:20)
Jeremiah Johnson: Where you headed?
Del Gue: Same place you are, Jeremiah: hell, in the end.
Bear Claw Chris Lapp: Bear Claw is building a hot coal bed putting and covering them to sleep on, tells Jeremiah to do like wise. Middle of the night Jeremiahs blankets start smoking and jumps out of bed.
Bear Claw Chris Lapp: Bear Claw looks up from his bed and says" Didn't put enough dirt down, Saw it right off"
Del Gue: Amongst lnjuns... a tribe's greatness is figured on how mighty its enemies be.
