The High Chaparral

The Glory Soldiers - S2-E18

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.

Stinky Flanagan - S2-E21

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)

Feather of an Eagle - S2-E19

Revealing mistake: When Buck gallops away from Mano and the newly-rescued Sarah, two jet contrails are visible in the sky at the upper left of the screen.

The Promised Land - S2-E6

Revealing mistake: At the end, we see insert close-ups of several of the pueblo's residents. But they're exactly the same shots we saw near the beginning of the episode: the same people in the exact same positions, shown in the same sequence. The footage is recycled.

The Promised Land - S2-E6

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.

Mistakes

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.
