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
Revealing mistake: Towards the end of this episode, West enters a small house. As the door opens, there is a small piece of furniture with drawers in the front and a red and white checker cloth on top. During the fight scene in this room, this chest of drawers is broken to reveal it is a prop that had the drawers painted on the front.
Continuity mistake: In the first scene, the close-up of the train entering the town shows the number 22 and is not painted as West's train is. However, when West enters the box car from the town's train depot, it is his box car. Also, as West enters the boxcar, the backdrop of the outside is not of the train depot but looks more like solid brown paneling.
Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the first half of this show, the colonel and West are having a drink inside. Both men's clothes are spotless as they walk to the door to go outside. Once they go through the door, the colonel's jacket is noticeably dirty, especially on its right side. When West turns around from seeing Sgt. Tobin's body, the seat of West's pants is also quite dirty with a small tear in the middle of the seat of his pants. When West walks towards his horse to leave, the seat of his pants is spotless and the rip is gone.11291929
Continuity mistake: Towards the end of this episode after the piñatas have exploded, West and Harper sit down to talk. Behind West to the left of the screen, only one blue and white piñata is hanging. The next shot of the two men talking shows three different piñatas hanging behind them.11291929
Continuity mistake: The last shot before the opening credits, West is knocked out face down with his head resting on this right hand which is on top of his left hand. The very next shot shows West's head resting on his right arm and his left arm is folded underneath his chest.11291929
Continuity mistake: In the scene before the third freeze frame, a large coffin-like rectangular object slides into the water. West is inside this structure. All sides are completely flat. We see the object under water sinking. This one is much shorter, has an oval window, and the side is not completely flat when compared to the one that enters the water. After the freeze frame, West is sitting up with his legs completely extended. The dimensions of this under water container would have to have height and width much longer than the other two containers that have been shown.11291929
Continuity mistake: The first shot of West's eyes, after the opening credits, shows them to be a bit different than usual - as if they had an allergic reaction to something. The second, third, and fourth shots show the eyes back to normal, but the shot of him walking the princess to the door shows a very puffy faced West. After walking her to the door when he turns around, West is back to looking like his typical self for the rest of this episode.11291929
Revealing mistake: Midway in this episode, West is fighting two men in a bedroom. One of them is pushed into the green chest of drawers and breaks it. It is obviously a prop, because the front is a flat piece of painted wood to look like drawers; there are no drawers when this piece falls apart.11291929
Continuity mistake: In the last scene right before West walks into the boxcar, the front of the train shows the number 16, and the square area around the front light is grey with swirl designs above and below the light. At the end of this scene, the last shot is of the front of the train, and it is showing the number 8 with the square area around the front light is red.
Continuity mistake: Before and after the first freeze frame, West's hair is combed from the right side to left. During the next scene when West's hat comes off during the fight, his hair is combed from the left side. In the next scene in the boxcar, his hair is back to being combed from the right. In the last scene of this episode when West is in the boxcar, he has a completely different hair cut. It is much shorter than in the previous scene, very flat looking, and is parted on the left. This last shot makes Mr. West appear to have a receding hairline.11291929
Continuity mistake: West uses a chandelier to knock down a thug wearing a brown vest against the opposite wall in the Saloon. When West gets up, the thug is now lying next to West and wears a green vest rather than brown, and is also closer to the Saloon's bar.Scott215
Other mistake: In the last fight scene, West runs uphill from the cave entering the scene from the most east side of the screen. There is a bad guy on the ground to West's right side as West is running uphill. The villains chase West, but their shot shows them entering the same scene from the middle of the screen with the guy on the ground on their left side.11291929
Deliberate mistake: After Jeremy Pike drops the box in front of the firing squad and it begins to emit smoke, the wind blows the smoke to the right. The actors playing the soldiers in the firing squad then move themselves into the smoke and begin coughing and choking from it.Scott215
Factual error: West and Artie are trying to move a cabinet from the wall. A closeup shot shows West's left hand entering from the right side of the shot to press a button that allows a secret panel to open. Unless West twisted his left hand 180°, then him pressing the button as shown is not possible.Scott215
