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.JohnJohnD
Revealing mistake: About half way through this episode, the hooded man West is chasing goes through double doors and closes them. West slams his body to open the doors. He steps back to ram his body into the doors again to force them open. Before he does, we see the doors sort of slightly move back and forth (this looks very odd and unnatural) before West slams them open.11291929
Continuity mistake: Three fourths into this episode, West fights several clowns in the bar. West's jacket becomes very dirty around his upper left chest and left knee areas. West runs through a nearby door into the hallway with completely clean clothes. As West is freeing Lionel, only the lower left knee is dirty; the jacket is still clean. The next full shot of West has the knee area clean.11291929
Continuity mistake: The first scene shows West riding into town wearing a blue shirt, a black kerchief, blue corduroy jacket with black leather lapels, black chaps, and a large belt buckle. After he gets off his horse to start walking, the next close-up of him walking shows him wearing a fancy blue vest, a blue neck piece, different blue jacket with blue lapels, and no chaps. West wears this for the remainder of the scene.11291929
Revealing mistake: The exact footage is used in the beginning of the first shot of this episode as well as the when the opening credits have stopped showing - two women walking on the lower right of the screen, two men riding side by side away from the camera, and the coach with one dark and one light colored horse riding into the camera on the screen's left.11291929
Continuity mistake: A bit after midway through this episode, while in the cave, West, wearing a blue shirt, is rolled into a hole on the ground. After the fall, he is wearing a white shirt. There is a close-up of West reaching into his jacket for rope. The close-up shows West wearing a blue vest. He is wearing the white shirt (no vest) as he begins to climb out of the hole, but when he gets out of the hole he is wearing a blue shirt (no vest).11291929
