At approximately one hour and 48 minutes into the film, when a convict falls into a mud pit and drowns, just before he disappears below the surface you can see a mistake in the background matte which shows the volcano. The glaring mistake reveals part of the background appearing in front of the top of his head, making it appear as though the top of his head is missing. Then as he slips further down, the top of his head then comes back into view as his head falls below the matte.
