Continuity mistake: When Mongo first comes into town and the man on the horse says "You can't park that animal here," Mongo punches the horse and its rider, and the horse falls. Before the cut to the close up of the man (obviously the stunt double), his head is facing toward the horse's head. After the cut to the close up of the man, his body is facing the opposite direction. (00:46:30)
Continuity mistake: When Mongo gets the "candygram", he closes his eyes BEFORE it explodes in his face. True, that is necessary for safety, but if he would have tilted his head just a little more, his hat would have blocked the view of his eyes. (00:48:15)
Continuity mistake: The scene where the gang stampedes through Rockridge, a thug on horseback lassos a man who is dragged down with the rope slipping down around his feet. As he's dragged foot first through the mud, he says "Well, that's the end of this suit" only now, the rope is up around his chest and under his arms and he's being pulled in a head first direction. (00:14:25)
Continuity mistake: When Sheriff Bart and The Waco Kid are sitting in the sheriff's office, the Waco Kid is shaving. He has shaving cream on his face, he wipes some if it off, leaving some on. Bart kicks a chair and the Waco Kid jumps up and the shaving cream is gone.Pam-I-am
Continuity mistake: When the Sheriff comes into Lili's dressing room, she has her left hand resting on the desk.When she takes the rose you can tell her left arm is down to her side now. When she tells the sheriff to have a seat, she only raises her right arm but in the next shot her left arm is raised with her hand in the desk again.Bishop73
Continuity mistake: When the townspeople are saying their goodbyes to Sheriff Bart, Mongo clobbers a man wearing a derby next to him and the man falls to the ground. The next shot the crowd is still densely packed, but the man Mongo struck is not standing, on the ground, or anywhere to be seen - he has disappeared.Scott215
Continuity mistake: As the taxi Hedley is in approaches Grauman's Chinese Theater, watch the movie title "Blazing Saddles" on the marquees. It moves slightly as the camera pans to keep the taxi in frame. Also, Hedley's suit and face are spotless, despite entering the taxi covered in whipped cream. And, it was afternoon when Lamarr got the cab, but dark at the theater. The studio and theater are only four miles apart.Movie Nut
Continuity mistake: After Mongo punches the horse and it's down, the snout is pointed toward the chest. In the close up, the head is at a more natural angle.
Jim: Well, it got so that every piss-ant prairie punk who thought he could shoot a gun would ride into town to try out the Waco Kid. I must have killed more men than Cecil B. DeMille. It got pretty gritty. I started to hear the word "draw" in my sleep. Then one day, I was just walking down the street when I heard a voice behind me say, "Reach for it, mister!" I spun around... And there I was, face-to-face with a six-year old kid. Well, I just threw my guns down and walked away. Little bastard shot me in the ass. So I limped to the nearest saloon, crawled inside a whiskey bottle, and I've been there ever since.
