The High Chaparral

A Time to Laugh, a Time to Cry - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: Manolito rushes into Don Sebastian's study, passing two large, open doors. When the shot cuts, he passes the same doors again.

To Stand for Something More - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: Much fuss is made throughout this episode about Blue being left in charge of the High Chaparral "for the first time." But it isn't the first time. He was left in charge once before, in the previous season, and no one made a big deal of it in that episode at all.

Jean G

Alliance - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: When Manolito trips and drops all of Victoria's packages in the street, a box that lands beside his head in close-up disappears in the next, wider angle shot. (00:05:00)

Jean G

Tiger by the Tail - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: As Victoria tends to him, the blood stains on El Tigre's bandages keep changing positions and patterns between shots.

To Stand for Something More - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: After pulling the calf out of the mud, Pedro rides off on Blue's cream-colored horse, Soapy. They go off in opposite directions (Blue on Pedro's horse), yet minutes later, Blue arrives at the ranch - riding Soapy. (00:15:30)

Jean G

Mi Casa, Su Casa - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: While he's "dining" with Miguel and the banditos, Don Sebastian's position on the ground changes repeatedly as the camera angles shift. In most shots, he's reclining and leaning on one elbow. But in several others, he's sitting upright. (00:24:35)

Jean G

The Lion Sleeps - S2-E25

Continuity mistake: When Manolito wakes her up, Anita instantly changes positions on the bed between takes. She's lying on her side, but in the very next shot, she is suddenly on her back looking up at him. (00:20:00)

Jean G

Alliance - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: The petticoat Mano pulls out of Johnny Ringo's hands disappears in the very next shot when they greet each other on the street. (00:05:40)

Jean G

The Assassins - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: Manolito leaves the ranch on a black horse that changes, mid-ride, into his regular brown sorrel, "Macadoo." In later shots of the same ride, the black horse is back, but when Mano dismounts, he's with Macadoo once again.

Jean G

Our Lady of Guadalupe - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: When Father Sanchez contemplates tossing his burden over the cliff, the bundle he holds is neatly wrapped. When the shot cuts, however, the blanket wrapped around the statue is abruptly loose and disarrayed. (00:17:30)

Jean G

The Promised Land - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: Mano throws a lasso around part of the burning hay wagon and hauls it away from the building. The camera angle changes as the wagon is pulled out, and from one shot to the next, the flames completely disappear.

Jean G

Shadow of the Wind - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: When he's escorting Victoria back to the ranch, Manolito's shirt collar is completely outside his jacket in all the full shots, but is tucked inside the jacket in close-ups. (00:24:00)

Jean G

Friends and Partners - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: The plate Buck and Mano wash is a 20th Century pie tin made of non-reflective aluminum, something unlikely to be found in 1870s Arizona. After they dry it off, it changes into polished steel that's shiny enough to reflect their faces. It also changes shape.

Jean G

Sea of Enemies - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: Blue is struck by a rifle stock and has a bleeding wound on his left temple. A few shots later, though, the wound disappears completely. Several scenes later, it's back again.

Jean G

North to Tucson - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: In the opening sequence, when the stagecoach first overturns, only one wheel is left spinning. In the next shot, as the comancheros ride up to the wreckage, all four wheels are spinning.

Jean G

Only the Bad Come to Sonora - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: The number of outlaws in the gang mysteriously increases during one chase scene. For most of the episode, there are only three of them. When they gallop off after Manolito, there are suddenly five. Next scene, there are three again. (00:20:35)

Jean G

Shadow of the Wind - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: Inside the hotel, Manolito is wearing a white shirt. But when he walks outside, he has on his usual yellow-gold one. It turns white again a few shots later.

Jean G

The Kinsman - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: When Manolito rides up to the house, Buck is grooming his horse, Rebel, while standing beside the animal's left flank. After a very brief cut to Mano and back, Buck is suddenly on Rebel's right flank, without enough time to have moved there. (00:34:30)

Jean G

Sangre - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: The blood stain on Sangre's clothing disappears when Manolito borrows the outfit as a disguise. It reappears at the end just in time for Sangre to put the clothes back on again. (00:39:20)

Jean G

Follow Your Heart - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: A dark brown moisture stain that forms a stripe down the back of Sam's coat disappears when he enters the church, reappears when he comes out, and vanishes again when he meets Trinidad in the graveyard.

Buck lights the fuse and tosses the dynamite-filled barrel at the bad guys. We see the explosion. Unfortunately, after that, we can also see the intact barrel still rolling away in the dirt.

Trivia

While shooting an early episode, Henry Darrow fell from his horse and suffered a painful bruise when he landed very hard on the gun at his hip. After much pleading, he convinced the producers and the prop dept. to make a replica pistol out of rubber. Replaced by the real one only when it actually had to be fired, the fake gun remained in Manolito's holster for the rest of the show's run.
