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.

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)

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)

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)

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)

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.

Trail to Nevermore - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: When the bad guys arrive in Nevermore, they prejudicially assume that Victoria is Manolito's wife. No one disabuses them of this notion, yet John later tells one of them that he was right about Victoria being his wife. (00:30:30)

Lady Fair - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: Charly steps forward several feet before pointing her gun and shooting the hats off two cowboys on the boardwalk. But in the very next shot, she's suddenly standing back beside Buck, without time to get there. (00:08:00)

Jean G

Jelks - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: When John confronts Joe about firing Jelks, Joe's hands change positions, from down at his sides to up at chest level adjusting his gloves, every time the camera angle changes. (00:22:50)

Alliance - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: During the climactic gun battle, several Apaches are shot off their horses. But in subsequent shots of the same area, all the bodies have vanished.

Jean G

Friends and Partners - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: Victoria is cleaning a lamp and has removed the globe and placed it on the table. After Buck and Mano enter, her blue cleaning rag jumps from hanging on the lamp to being in her hands and back several times between takes. And the lamp globe mysteriously replaces itself by the end of the scene, even though she hasn't touched it again. (00:44:00 - 00:46:30)

Jean G

Friends and Partners - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: When Mano wakes Buck up, Buck's hat strings are hanging down over his face. When the shot cuts, though, the strings are immediately tucked back over his ears.

Jean G

Alliance - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: One of the Apaches throws his lance at Manolito's feet, and it lands beside him at a 30 degree angle. In the next shot, though, as Mano walks away, the lance is sticking straight up out of the ground.

Jean G

Lady Fair - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: Just after Buck jumps in to break Charly's fall, his right hand is high on her shoulder in full shots. But in close-ups, his hand and arm are around her waist instead.

The Lieutenant - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: A heavy black bag falls from the Simmons' wagon as they pull away from their house. A short time later, it has disappeared from the spot where it landed.

Jean G

Trail to Nevermore - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: Victoria starts the ill-fated journey wearing culotte-style pants. When they get stranded without food, clothes or other provisions, the pants somehow turn into a skirt.
