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.
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?
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.
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.
Continuity mistake: West has a different hairstyle as it is parted down the middle when he is fighting outside the Nugget Saloon. In the inside fight and throughout this episode, there is no part in his hair - with the only exception of this outside fight.
Continuity mistake: Towards the end of this episode when West gets into the casket, the width of the head area is wider than the foot area of the casket. There are only two circular hand grips on a side. When the two monks are carrying it to the furnace, the casket is symmetrically shaped with the head and foot areas being the same width, and there are three round hand grips on the side. Right before the third freeze frame when the monks are in front of the furnace, the casket is back to the original shape with the head area wider than the foot area.
Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, West is shot and falls off the stage coach. He falls to the ground with both arms stretched out horizontally. As the stage coach leaves, his left arm is positioned along side his body. One of the villains throws West's hat, and it lodges between his left hand and body. When West is found unconscious, the hat is resting on his left shoulder.
Continuity mistake: After the third freeze frame, there is an outside fight. West has a major rip in his pants on the left inner seam from the knee to almost his waist - showing his white underwear during the fight. After the camera shot to Gordon and then back to West, his pants are now miraculously mended in the front and inner left leg area with a new large rip on the pant outer right seam from the knee to upper thigh.
Continuity mistake: In the last scene in the train car before President Grant walks in, two bottles are in the middle of the table (labels facing away from one another) with four glasses behind them. When the President enters and walks towards the table, both bottles are now placed further back (labels are now facing to the front) with the four glass and an ashtray in front of the bottles. After the President refuses a drink of wine, the table is back to the original setup - labels faces away one another and glasses are behind the bottles; the ashtray is no longer there.
Continuity mistake: In the scene before the second freeze frame appears, West is wearing a white shirt with a black neckerchief and blue corduroy jacket. In the close-up of West being handcuffed, he is wearing a blue vest and a different non-corduroy blue jacket. For the rest of the episode, West wears the original white shirt with black neckerchief and blue corduroy jacket.
Continuity mistake: In the last scene in the train's box car, after Princess Silva's departure, all three wine glasses are suddenly almost empty when in the shot before, they were more full. Also, both napkins on the table are rearranged between the two table shots.
Continuity mistake: Throughout this episode, the camera shots alternate in showing two trains. After West handcuffs Count Draja on the stage coach, a train is shown with two flags - one on each side of the smokestack (at slanted angles), and the bottom front grill is black. The second time the train appears, the flag is vertical off the side of the train, and the bottom grill has changed to red. The third time the train is shown, there are no flags. The fourth time the train appears, it is the original with two slanted flags and black grill. In the final train shot, the bottom grill has changed to red.
Continuity mistake: Throughout this episode, West's hair keeps switching from being parted on the left and being flat to being combed from the right in a sweeping higher volume style. Before the title appears, in the inside fight scene, it is parted on the right. In the scene after, the part of West's hair has moved to the left side and remains during the scene in the garden house. When West goes through the garden house trap door, right after he enters the home through a secret passage, West's hair is combed from the right with the sweeping more volume hair. After the fight in that room, as he is breaks through the glass, once outside, his hair goes back to being parted on the left and being flat again. The next scene his hair changes to the more full version. West's hair goes flat again when he is with Gordon in the garden house right before the third frozen panel appears (of the five panels in every episode). His hair changes to right combed version when he enters the home with Gordon through the secret passage and remains this way for the rest of the episode.
