210 mistakes

The Night Dr. Loveless Died - S3-E4

Visible crew/equipment: The arm of the actual carriage driver is is visible poking through the back of the carriage, slapping the horse and signaling it when to stop/proceed with a second set of reins, showing the actor in the carriage was not controlling the horse at all.

The Night Dr. Loveless Died - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, a cowboy sitting atop the balcony above Big Brad's Bar gets up and approaches the balcony's edge twice.

Add time

The Night of the Bubbling Death - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: As West drags the body of a bad guy out of the scene, the supposedly unconscious man is holding his head up so as not to have his head dragged through the dirt. A truly unconscious person's head would flop back on to the ground.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: "Night of the Bubbling Death": When West breaks into the hacienda, the double windows he enters by have quite a bit of glowing light behind them. Yet when he climbs into the room, it's completely dark inside.

The Night of the Avaricious Actuary - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: The letter from the Cyclops Insurance Company that Gordon pulls out of his pocket is folded, wrinkled, and well-worn. In the close up of the same letter West reads, the letter is white, pristine, and not wrinkled or folded.

Add time

The Night of the Doomsday Formula - S4-E2

Revealing mistake: When West rescues the doctor's daughter from the flames by swinging down from his rope, the face of the stuntman playing the daughter for this scene is obvious.

Add time

The Night of the Pistoleros - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: As West shoots it out with a bandito, the door jamb West uses for cover has a varying amount of bullet holes in it.

Add time

The Night of Miguelito's Revenge - S4-E12

Other mistake: The sandbag that almost falls on Pike and West splits wide open upon impact with the floor, but subsequent shots of the bag show it almost intact.

The Night of Miguelito's Revenge - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: The barber chair West sits in has dark wood arm rests, yet the close up of his hand as he is being chloroformed by Loveless shows white arm rests.

Add time

The Night of the Camera - S4-E10

Revealing mistake: As Bosley Cranston fights the bad guy, Pat Paulsen's stunt double does not look like Paulsen - the stunt double is much younger looking.

Add time

The Night of Jack O'Diamonds - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: As West lowers himself down the face of the cliff with his hand-held rappelling tool, West does not have a safety harness attached until a few shots later, then the safety harness disappears.

Add time

The Night of the Brain - S2-E21

Revealing mistake: Mr. Braine screams as his steam-powered chair crashes into the bandstand. If you look closely at the next shot, just before the explosion, you can see that the dummy now in the chair is already missing its head.

Factual error: "Night of the Arrow": The soldiers toss Artemus into the cell, slam the door and walk away. But they never produce a key or lock the cell door. He's somehow locked in anyway, though.

The Night of the Circus of Death - S3-E9

Factual error: At the mint, Arte hides in a broom closet. He carries nothing in (nor did he hide anything in there beforehand), yet he emerges later in an "old man" disguise, wearing a wig, hat, mustache, false nose, glasses and janitor costume. Magic closet?

The Night of the Inferno - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When Liddy's mansion explodes and burns, the switch from real house to cardboard model is very obvious.

Continuity mistake: "Night of the Arrow": West and Gordon leave two champagne bottles and four glasses sitting on the table when they walk away to answer the door. When they return, the bottles and glasses have all completely changed positions by themselves.

Continuity mistake: "Night of the Arrow": President Grant's cigar keeps getting longer, shorter, and longer again as he gives West and Gordon their special assignment aboard the train.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: "Night of the Bubbling Death": When Grigsby first approaches the stolen U.S. Constitution, it's under glass (we can see the light reflections). But seconds later he lifts the paper without removing the glass, which has disappeared. It's back later, when West must cut it to retrieve the document.

The Night of the Howling Light - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: It's night outside the train's windows - until Artemus looks out at the attacking Indians; then it's day, and in next shot, it's night again.

Show generally

Revealing mistake: "Night of the Jack of Diamonds": During his fight with West, Sordo the bandito, who has a gray beard, is suddenly several years younger with a dark brown beard, thanks to the substitution of a stunt double.
