When Gil pours Judge Tolliver a whiskey he tosses aside the cork which falls down the back of the chest. When he replaces the bottle the cork is beside it.
On the honeymoon evening: Billy throws his brother out one side of the tent, but from the outside, that flap is tied shut and his brother falls out the other side.
When Gil pours the judge the drink, his hand changes position on the bottle between shots, the hat on the bed also changes from old and having a dent to being in mint condition.
Returning to Elsa's farm at the end of the movie and looking down at it from the hill, a set of dual tire tracks can be seen in the dirt.
Near the beginning, Randolph Scott claims to have been the Oregon Kid, who tamed Witchita among other cities. It should have been Wichita.
(at around 14 mins) In the restaurant fight, the wall moves when one of the fighters bounces off of it.
When Elsa is cleaning the barn, she has two shadows even though it's daylight and no lanterns in the barn are lit.
The "snow" shown on the ground in a number of scenes in the mining camp is obviously foam. This is clear from, for example, the scene when Billy Hammond (James Drury) throws his brother Jimmy (John Davis Chandler) out of the "honeymoon" tent onto his back. The "snow" splatters like foam, not snow.
It is suppose to be night at the farm, but the sun is out.
The 34 star flags at the opening of the movie do not match the bobby helmets, open automobiles and electric wiring over the streets. The US 34 star flag was only in use from 1861-1863.
There are a number of indications that this film is set no later than the late 1890s or early 1900s - for example, the date of Elsa's mother death on her tombstone and the open automobile (characteristic of early twentieth century models). The heavily-worn dime that Judd (Joel McCrea) bets in the booth run by Westrum (Randolph Scott) in the opening scenes, however, is a "Mercury" (Winged Liberty) dime, first coined in 1916. The dime shown, moreover, could not have become so worn without several more years in circulation.
