The High Chaparral

Show generally

Deliberate mistake: Though it was, overall, far more historically accurate than most TV westerns, "High Chaparral" retained one anachronism throughout its run. For safety reasons, all the coal-oil lamps and lanterns on the set contained obvious electric light bulbs rather than burning wicks.

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.

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.
