The Plainsman

Continuity mistake: In this scene we see Buffalo Bill and Wild Bill Hickok in a shootout with the Indians. Hickok has a belt with bullets over his shoulder. The bullets start with nine from the top of the shoulder down, then a space of three then six more bullets. As the gun battle goes on he uses more, then we see a closer shot and now there are fifteen bullets from the top of the shoulder going all the way down the belt.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where we see the cavalry ride in before an ambush, Buffalo Bill has four buttons done up on his jacket and in the next close up shot of him, there are only two buttons done up.

Continuity mistake: Before the ambush with the Indians, we see Buffalo Bill on a horse - only it's not him, but a stand-in. In the next shot we see Buffalo Bill closer up, and comparing the profile and facial structure of both shots, it's a different person on the horse to the actor that portrays Buffalo Bill. (Stand-ins were often used in older films when the actor was not available for filming for whatever reason.)
