The Lone Ranger

Continuity mistake: At the start of the train chase Tonto blows the whistle as he passes the bad guy who says "shoot him you idiot". The soldier opens fire with the machine gun and Tonto is suddenly back in front and passing him again.


Factual error: When the lone ranger fires his guns at the train he shoots over 20 times, despite using a 6 shooter. Likewise when Fuller is shooting at Tonto through the roof.


Factual error: About 3/4 of the way through, a scene shows two trains facing each other, and a band plays "Stars and Stripes Forever" a famous march composed by John Phillip Sousa. However, this march was not composed until 1896, 27 years after the scene supposedly takes place (1869).

More quotes from The Lone Ranger

Question: Something I've always wondered about trains in the old west on these unfinished railroads, and this movie brought it to my attention again. It shows the track still being built, and it's a single track for one train, no second track along side it. That being said, before the track was finished there is a train going down it one way at the beginning of the movie with passengers. When the train is taken over and forced to steam ahead out of control, it goes off the end of the track and crashes. Well if this hadn't happened, how would the train have gotten back? It is a one way train, on an incomplete track and stopping at a station to drop of passengers and supplies. How would the train have turned around to go the other way again?

Chosen answer: There are stations in between the ends of the line that allow the train to unload passengers, unload cargo, hitch new cars, and turn to go in the opposite direction.
