The Wild Wild West

The Night Dr. Loveless Died - S3-E4

Visible crew/equipment: The arm of the actual carriage driver 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 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.

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.

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.

Jean G

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 Bubbling Death": When Grigsby first approaches the stolen U.S. Constitution, it's under glass (we can see the light reflections).

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.

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.

Visible crew/equipment: When the old man gets up from his chair and moves toward the door, the camera shadow is moving on the wall behind him.

Jean G

The Night of the Underground Terror - S3-E19

Factual error: The small round table in West's railcar parlor has a flip-over top, with secret maps hidden on the underside. The wine decanter and glasses all stay attached when it flips. But impossibly, when West turns the tabletop back over at the end, there's a full cup of coffee sitting on it.

The Night of the Howling Light - S1-E14

Revealing mistake: "Night of the Underground Terror": During the climactic fight scene, James West's famously tight trousers rip apart in the crotch, amply revealing his very 20th-century white jockey briefs. A few shots later, that rip mends itself and the pants are split (much more decorously) down the right outer seam instead.

The Night of the Bubbling Death - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: West and Gordon burn a perfect circle (unlikely in and of itself) in the metal floor in order to break into the dungeon below. West punches the circle out with his fist, then grasps what should be white-hot edges with his bare hands before jumping through the opening. Even if wood it would still be too hot to touch.

Jean G

The Night of the Returning Dead - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: In the barn, when Artemus jokes about "smoked ham," he and West are standing within inches of each other. Then the shot cuts to a wider angle, at which point they're several feet apart.

The Night of the Eccentrics - S2-E1

Visible crew/equipment: Behind West, when he's suspended over the electrical field, you can see the shadow of the boom mike and rigging pole moving on the wall.

The Night of the Raven - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: West and Gordon are ordered to sit on the floor to talk to the diminutive Dr. Loveless at eye level. In all the two-shots, their shoulders are touching. In all the wider angles, they're sitting a foot apart.

xx:xx:xx

Jean G

The Night of the Murderous Spring - S1-E27

Revealing mistake: Kitten bends apart the cell bars, allowing West and Gordon to escape. But when they brush against it on the way out, one of the "iron" bars gives, flexing like the rubber that it probably is.

xx:xx:xx

Jean G

The Night of the Burning Diamond - S1-E26

Revealing mistake: Artemus is sampling beef stroganoff from a pot on the stove. He then carries the kettle by its swinging handle across the room, tilting it just enough to reveal to the camera that it's really empty.

xx:xx:xx

Jean G

The Night of the Returning Dead - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: "Night of the Bubbling Death": The dust left on West's jacket after the fight changes patterns several times, then disappears altogether when he enters the building. A shot of his feet shows us that his formerly dusty boots also polished themselves.

Jean G

The Night That Terror Stalked the Town - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: West pulls a gun on Artemus and places it just behind his head. In the next shot, though, West is standing two feet away and the gun is nowhere near Artemus' head.

xx:xx:xx

Jean G

The Night of the Man-Eating House - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: West tosses a small grenade at the French doors. We see it hit and explode without breaking a single pane or crosspiece. It just makes smoke and blackens the surface. After a shot of West and Gordon, we cut back to the door and it's now a broken ruin with no glass and the wood framing destroyed. Delayed action bomb?

The Night of Miguelito's Revenge - S4-E12

Revealing mistake: At the beginning of the episode, as Jim West walks away from the newsstand vendor and closes the magazine, a 1967 ad for DieHard batteries ("The DieHard Fights the Common Cold") can be seen on the right-hand page of the prop magazine, in a modern sans serif font.

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the episode when West walks into the mansion where the meeting is behind held, just as he enters, Lt. Armand Renard can be seen talking to Artemus at the bottom of the staircase, but Renard died earlier in the episode. They obviously filmed this scene at the same time as the first scene, but missed that continuity error in the editing.

The Night of the Raven - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: When the marshal opens the train's rear door and comes in to arrest Lana, you can see wrinkles in the "sky" outside. It's really a painted cloth backdrop.

The Night of the Vicious Valentine - S2-E20

Factual error: Artemus opens a cabinet to reveal a map of the United States where he and West are keeping track of the alphabetical murders. The map is far out of date for the Grant administration, with what became the state of West Virginia during the Civil War still part of Virginia, and missing entirely the states of Nevada, Oregon, Kansas, Nebraska, and Minnesota-all of which were part of the union before President Grant took office.

The Night That Terror Stalked the Town - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: The Constitution lies flat in the display case. After West cuts a circular piece of glass to remove the document, he takes it out and it is seen to be conveniently rolled up for ease of removal through the circle rather than flat.

The Night of the Bubbling Death - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: Once West crosses the acid bath, he leaves a small piece of rope hanging from the zip line. Later, when he meets Artie to recross over the acid bath, the rope has grown to about three feet in length. Artie was too far away (and did not have the equipment to cross) for him to change its length.

The Night of the Sudden Plague - S1-E28

The Night of the Murderous Spring - S1-E27

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Loveless falls from the sill of the double window, the right half of the frame is open (the camera view being from the outside looking in). When West rushes outside to find the "body" missing, the right frame has closed itself and the left is now open.

Visible crew/equipment: When the stagecoach pulls into the station, tracks from the camera truck can be seen in the dirt.

The Night of the Wolf - S2-E27

Continuity mistake: The boot heel West removes to obtain his hidden explosive somehow reattaches itself by the time he leaps into the mining car. (He doesn't stop to put it back - he's running for his life from a pack of hungry wolves.) His boots also change from black to brown by the time he makes it outside and jumps on his trusty horse.

Jean G

The Night of the Wolf - S2-E27

Revealing mistake: Though the stock footage is of a real wolf, the animal West wrestles with is too-obviously a dog wearing a fake pair of wolf ears. In later wrestling matches between West and the wolves, the attacking beast is a stuffed prop that never moves its legs, head or jaws at all.

The Night of the Tottering Tontine - S2-E16

The Night of the Tottering Tontine - S2-E16

The Night of the Poisonous Posey - S2-E7

The Night of the Eccentrics - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: Tony throws two knives at West - but on the wall where the knives hit, the rectangular openings from which the blades actually emerge are delineated beforehand. Happens again a few scenes later, where slots cut in the door are already there before the knives are thrown. [Spoiler: It's inconsequential to the "revealing" error, but if you play the scene in slow motion, you can see that both times, the knives pop through from the back of the "wall." This is also how the carnival trick is performed.]

Jean G

The Night of the Brain - S2-E21

Revealing mistake: Mr. Braine fires a mini-rocket at Brendage, killing him. But a poor camera angle reveals the explosive charge going off in the wall more than two feet to Brendage's left. From the angle at which it was fired, the rocket couldn't possibly have hit him.

The Night of the Man-Eating House - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: West and Gordon drag Day from the haunted house, prop him on the porch and turn away. When they turn back, they're stunned to see that he's aged 30 years. But if you look closely, you can see that the man they prop on the porch is already gray-bearded and shaggy. So why were they surprised?

The Night of the Deadly Blossom - S2-E25

Continuity mistake: When Barclay hangs the bone hatchet back in its place, the outline on the wall supposedly left by the item differs significantly from the artifact itself. (Most noticeable is the upper end: the outline has one long curled tip, but the actual hatchet has two short prongs there.) The outline was apparently drawn without the prop, or from a different prop altogether.

The Night of the Skulls - S2-E13

Factual error: Fenlow begins shouting about "one nation, under God, indivisible." This series is set in the 1870s. The Pledge of Allegiance, from which these lines are taken, wasn't written until 1892. And the words "under God" weren't added until 1954.

The Night of the Man-Eating House - S2-E12

Jean G

The Night of the Watery Death - S2-E9

Factual error: The coin Artemus hands West is a Morgan silver dollar. It's no coincidence that the actor's thumb covers the date on the coin in the inserted close-up. The series is set during Grant's presidential term in the early 1870s, and Morgan dollars weren't minted until 1878, after Grant had left office.

The Night of the Poisonous Posey - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: The bad guys throw an unconscious West down a chute into the ice house. He goes in with his arms at his sides, then slides with his arms above his head, and finally lands with both hands folded over his stomach - all while remaining unconscious.

The Night of the Flying Pie Plate - S2-E6
