The Fugitive

The Fugitive (1963)

14 mistakes in season 3

Wife Killer - S3-E17

Factual error: The Baker City Herald's office door misspells the word "personnel" with a sign reading, "Authorized Personel Only." Pretty poor editing for a newspaper office.

The White Knight - S3-E26

Visible crew/equipment: In the middle of the desert, the side of the white van Kimble drives captures the image of two huge rectangular studio light reflectors.

The Chinese Sunset - S3-E23

Revealing mistake: Kimble and Eddie take an elevator down to the parking garage. When the doors open, you can see that there's no break in the floor between the garage and the elevator car. It's solid concrete.

Echo of a Nightmare - S3-E19

Revealing mistake: During the fight in the farmhouse, Kimble's stunt double is very obvious. You can see his face in several shots.

The White Knight - S3-E26

Factual error: Madison's 1966 Lincoln Continental is equipped with a car phone, a luxury that, in the 1960s, required a very large external antenna. Somehow, though, Madison's phone works without one.

Middle of a Heat Wave - S3-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Laurel's sister comes to Kimble's hotel room to confront him, an equipment shadow moves across one of the walls, and is reflected in the mirror behind them.

All the Scared Rabbits - S3-E7

Plot hole: Peggy's old car is left behind in town when the police pick up Kimble and drive him out to the country house in their cruiser. No one goes back for Peggy's car, yet it's somehow back at the house at the end, just in time for Kimble to escape in it.

Ill Wind - S3-E24

Continuity mistake: Kimble and Gerard are sitting on the ground, handcuffed together. But without unlocking the restraints, Gerard stands up while Kimble remains seated, and moves several feet away, no longer linked to his prisoner. When he sits down, though, they're suddenly cuffed to each other again.

Running Scared - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: The prosecutor at Kimble's trial is said here to have been Mike Ballinger. But in the earlier "Girl From Little Egypt," the prosecutor's name was Lester Rand.

In a Plain Paper Wrapper - S3-E29

Factual error: Even though it's Sunday, Gary is somehow able to pick up a package at the post office, which is open when it shouldn't be.

Landscape with Running Figures (1) - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: Here, Gerard's wife (and he had only one) is a brunette named Marie. In "May God Have Mercy," she was a blonde named Ann.

Wife Killer - S3-E17

Revealing mistake: The one-armed man steals a car and a chase ensues. But during that chase, the stunt driver's two arms and two hands are briefly visible on the steering wheel of the fleeing car.

Wife Killer - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: Barbara searches the one-armed man's wallet. We see an insert shot of two cards, both with the signature "Fred Johnson." But in the next moment, she claims that no two of the IDs are the same before saying, "Oh, wait, here are two." She then "finds" the cards she'd already found in the earlier shot.

Wife Killer - S3-E17

Revealing mistake: The one-armed man's car goes off a cliff and instantly changes color and model type on the way down, exposing the use of poorly-matched stock footage.
