Revealing mistake: When the rurales chase Manolito, he's riding Macadoo, his sorrel horse with the blond mane and tail. But the use of a stunt horse becomes obvious when Mano hides by leaping off into an arroyo and urging his mount to lie down beside him. Suddenly "Macadoo's" coat is a much darker brown and his mane and tail have also turned brown. He becomes a blond sorrel again, though, in the next scene.Jean G
Revealing mistake: Due to budget cuts in the 3rd season, an L.A. soundstage replica of the ranch house replaced the outdoor set, which was in Old Tuscon. The replacement was often painfully obvious. In this episode, a stock exterior shot of the real house, with its outside walls undecorated, contrasts with the mock-up, which has mounted cattle horns all over it.Jean G
Revealing mistake: Apparently, Buck getting thrown off his horse, whose name was Rebel, wasn't in the script. When it happens, a startled Cameron Mitchell shouts at the horse using its real name, Prince. Despite the blooper, the shot wasn't cut. In fact, it happens at least two more times in other episodes of the series. (00:08:00)Jean G
Revealing mistake: During the fiesta, Reno plays his guitar in the canteen. Each time the musical chords change, we should see his left hand shift positions on the neck of the guitar. But though his right hand is vigorously strumming the strings through several chord changes, his left hand never moves.Jean G
Revealing mistake: After Buck knocks Bates out, Victoria takes the outlaw's clothes as a disguise in order to escape. Miraculously, Bates' clothes, despite his being a foot taller and considerably heavier than Victoria, fit her perfectly. She doesn't even have to roll up the shirt sleeves or the trouser legs.Jean G
Revealing mistake: The substitution of a "stunt horse" is noticeable here when Blue is thrown during an Apache attack. Before he falls off, his palomino horse has its usual blond mane and tail. But when the horse rears and he falls, it's another palomino with a grey mane and tail. The blond one is instantly back, though, when Blue gets up.Jean G
Revealing mistake: When Buck comes across the first of two bodies in the desert, we see only the dead man's booted legs protruding from the bushes. When he finds the second body, the exact same shot of legs and boots (with the same bushes and rocks) is used over again with the film reversed.Jean G
