Yankee, Stagecoach Driver: Tighten up that girth.
Juan Miranda: Señor, I... I must go to San Felipe... my mother is dead!

In the first scene where Juan holds up the Stage Coach, one of the children in the bandit gang is holding a Spanish double action pistol, an Astra 400. If this movie were to take place in 1914, the Astra 400 model would not have been invented yet, as it was put into production in 1921.
A quote from Chairman Mao regarding the nature of revolutions was removed from original English prints out of fear that audiences would misinterpret the quote's use as an endorsement of communist revolution. The quote was later put back into uncut prints.
The new 5.1 remix of the soundtrack on the restored Region 2 Special Edition release uses incorrect music cues for several scenes including the restored long flashback scene at the end, and edits out two expletives, one is uttered by Juan while talking to himself before attacking the bridge, the other spoken by John on the train. Both of these are intact in all other restored versions. The title of the restored version is now "Duck You Sucker" while the title on the cover remains "A Fistful of Dynamite".
