New this month Continuity mistake: When West ties his horse to column, there is a boarded up entrance to the left with one wooden plank at a 45 degree angle in the middle. When West returns to his horse to leave, the plank is missing, and West rides off without having to untie his horse.

New this month Continuity mistake: West enters the portrait and is stretched out on his back on the ground. As he is walking to the saloon, his entire backside of his suit is covered in dirt. West becomes dizzy, and as he is falling to the ground, face first, we see that the entire back side of his suit is clean.
New this month Continuity mistake: During the fight, the candle on the left tilts to the left. Next shot, it is perfectly vertical. West knocks a thug into the bureau, and left candlestick tilts to the right. After the fight is done when West is opening the door for Gordon, the candle is inexplicably on the floor.
New this month Continuity mistake: The second thug to be knocked-out is on the floor (to the left of screen) and has fallen on his left-side with his left leg slightly bent, and his right leg cannot be seen. When Gordon enters the room, this unconscious thug is now positioned face down, arms extended over his head, and both legs stretched out.
New this month Continuity mistake: The last thug to be knocked-out is on the floor by the fireplace with his body at an angle to it. When Gordon enters the room, this unconscious thug is closer to the fireplace, and his body has changed position to be parallel to it.
New this month Continuity mistake: West is lying down while in hand shackles. When Voulee turns her back to him, he releases a gadget from under his sleeve by his right wrist. While the camera closes in and out of the device to free him, West's shirt sleeve by his wrist keeps appearing and disappearing.
New this month Continuity mistake: The opening of the last scene is of the personal train car in the dark night with very little moonlight. The closing scene of this episode shows the train again amid the night sky which is a much lighter beautiful blue.
00:47:45 - 00:49:1511291929
New this month Continuity mistake: The opening scene of this episode shows the train moving at twilight. West and Gordon are looking out the window, and it is pitch black. Right before West goes outside, the camera shot of the train wheel shows light (either twilight or moonlight) on the wheel. The very next scene has West with the train door open, and it is pitch black outside.
00:00:05 - 00:00:3511291929
Continuity mistake: Halfway between the opening credits and first freeze frame, Gordon and Ms. Lily Fortune are seen entering the private train car in the dark of night, but the shot before their entrance is of the front of the private train car at twilight. That shot of the train car also shows a backwards number 3.
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?
Continuity mistake: When West and Dr. Pringle back up to the steel door to escape, West is about three feet in front of it. One of the villain's henchmen bursts in, saying, "hold it." The next shot and West is about eight feet away from the door and the henchman.
Continuity mistake: Dr. Pringle and West back up to a steel door to escape from the room and West is behind a table with lab equipment on it. A henchman charges in, gun drawn on West. The next instant shot shows the table has moved several feet to the viewer's left, presumably to make room for the impending fist fight West will have with the bad guys.
Continuity mistake: The final scene shows a government official entering the private car to take delivery of the sultan. The open door shows that it is pitch black outside, but the final shot of the private train departing shows a very blue sky.
00:48:05 - 00:49:0511291929
Continuity mistake: As West is throwing the sword at the robber who shot Gordon, his right pant leg is very dirty above and below the knee. West immediately walks to and kneels by the fallen Gordon. West's right pant leg above the knee is completely clean.
Continuity mistake: As the toy bear is making its way to Gordon, in the background to the right of the window is a plant on a wooden stand. Next to it is a full length long green curtain with gold tassled fringe at the bottom. Gordon throws the toy bear through the window, but there is no glass breaking. The tall wooden plant stand now is wrapped inside the curtain, and the golden fringe cannot be seen.
Continuity mistake: In pursuit of the photographer, West jumps out of the window and lands on a cart of stuffed burlap sacks. West's right shoulder area, back of his suit's jacket's right arm and right pant leg area are very dirty. As West runs after the photographer, his suit keeps getting cleaner and cleaner.
Continuity mistake: When Loveless crawls into the hollow log for protection against the fire, he leaves the horn by the log's entrance. Its mouth piece side is almost touching the log and is parallel to the log. The next shot shows the charred horn perpendicular to the log.
Continuity mistake: When West is untied from the pillar, a close-up shot of his foot shows him stepping on the wooden plank that activates the force field. The next shot shows him walking on the plank, but the force field was activated before he steps on it (from a wide angle shot).
Continuity mistake: Halfway through this episode, West's hands are tied to the bedpost. He frees a hidden knife from his lower right sleeve. The close-up of his right wrist shows two rope strands binding him. When West finally gets the knife in the position to cut the rope, only one rope strand is wrapped around his wrist.
Continuity mistake: Towards the beginning of this episode when West is first taken to see the commandant, Cochon goes to the rack on the wall to get West a clean shirt. They are standing by the door where Cochon throws the dirty shirt. There are three pegs on the rack, with a shirt hanging on the leftmost peg and rightmost peg. Cochon gets the shirt off the one on the right peg. As they walk away, West's dirty shirt is now on the ground under the left peg. After the meeting with the commodant, West and Cochon leave. Cochon asks for the clean shirt that West is wearing. When Cochon goes back to the rack to get West a replacement shirt, the shirt that was on the far left peg is now on the center peg, but West's dirty shirt is still under the left peg.
Continuity mistake: Before the first freeze frame, West passes out on his right side with his head resting on his right bicep. In the next scene when West regains consciousness, he is facing down with his head resting on folded arms - his head on the left forearm.
Continuity mistake: Towards the end of this episode, West is climbing up the latter out of the ice storage room. The seat of his pants are noticeably dirty as are both of his calves' areas. When West exits onto the street, his pants are inexplicably clean during this shootout scene. During West's fight with Brutus, West's entire back - from shoulders to the bottom of the legs of his pants - has been quite dirtied from rolling on the ground. West then runs to fight Sergei. When Sergei falls off the horse, and West is hovering over him, the entire back of West's clothes now seem only to be faintly dusty. When West leaves the fight area to enter into the funeral parlor, his clothes are immaculate.
Continuity mistake: Three fourths into this episode, West is inside the wall of the mouse hole. Wearing his blue suit, he enters a knot in the wall onto a ramp. While sliding down, West is now wearing an emerald green suit. When West is sliding into the octagon container, he is wearing the blue suit again.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the closing scene, their private train is shown moving right next to tall green trees with large mountains directly behind the trees. The final shot of the scene shows the train in a very desert-like location moving towards the trees and mountains which are shown in the far distance.
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.
Continuity mistake: West demonstrates how the knife popped out of the chair upholstery when pressure was applied. His hand is inches from the blade in one shot, then disappears in the next close-up view. When it cuts back to the master shot, his hand is once again beside the knife.
Continuity mistake: When they attack him, Artemus' cellmates are smacked with a wooden chair, which lands broken but upright on the floor. In the very next shot, though, as Artie throws the exploding cigar, the chair is suddenly lying on its side.
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?
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.
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.
