The position and angle of the arrow that led to the death of Richard the Lionheart changes. When the arrow first struck Richard, it is near where the neck and shoulder meet and at an angle that indicates it was fired from high above, whilst in the scene shortly later when the 'doctor' is attempting to remove it, the arrow is lower and at right angles, as if it was fired at ground level.
After having become dripping wet from completely submerging himself in the river and then carrying Marian (Audrey Hepburn) to the river bank, Robin's (Sean Connery's) undergarment is almost completely dry, but for a tide mark of dampness at the bottom, after removing his outer garment on the river bank.
Robin throws an unconscious Marian over the back of a horse. He clearly had no time to tie her down, but when the horses gallop off, bouncing up and down, she doesn't fall off.
When Robin and John are fighting the Sheriff's soldiers atop the wall while escaping the castle in Nottingham, John hits a pike-man over the head with his broadsword as Robin grapples with him, and the broadsword flexes more than enough to show that it is not metal.
Golden Delicious apples (in windows during last scene) did not exist in 13th century England.
When the coast and ocean are visible, there are modern boats off shore.
In the opening scene at the Siege, Robin tells Richard he has fought for him for twenty years. In the next scene, Richard also tells Mercadier that he first met Robin on his way to the Crusades, and that they had been friends for twenty years. Richard only sat on England's Throne for nine years (some say 8), and spent perhaps as little as only 8 months in England during his entire Reign.
