Continuity mistake: When Don Vito Corleone gets shot, the camera angle from the side of the car shows Fredo bent over trying to pick up the gun he dropped, but when we see him from the camera angle from above, he's just walking to the front of the car. When the angle cuts back to the front of the car, Fredo is once again bent over trying to pick up the gun. (00:43:10)

Continuity mistake: When D'Artagnan is riding away from the brothers in the beginning, he is seen riding the horse into woods from the wide camera angle, but when the angle changes to a close up, you see D'Artagnan riding along the edge of the woods for a few feet and then turning into the woods.
Visible crew/equipment: When Woodward has Paris draped over his horse, he's leading the horse back to the prison and you can see the square piece of black equipment they added to the foot rest of the saddle, that the stuntman is holding on to so he doesn't fall off the horse. When Woodward arrives at the prison, it's gone.
Continuity mistake: When Paris shoots the snakes that are guarding his hidden money, he fires his last 2 shots into the hole and you can see 2 snakes still alive even though the next scene shows them all dead.
Continuity mistake: When Paris is offering all the other prisoners half of his hidden money for a way to escape, he lays down in his bed with his cigar in his mouth and his arms at his side. The camera angle changes to a wide shot of the holding cell and the cigar is now in his right hand near the edge of the bed.

Continuity mistake: When Paris is making friends with the guy who shot a cop in the prison yard there is no shadow on Paris' face as he is talking. As a matter of fact, the shot looks like he has a huge bright light focused on him. When the guy who shot the cop is talking it is a different time of day. You can see shadows on his face and the background light is lower.
Continuity mistake: When Paris first meets The Missouri Kid he jumps to the top bunk, and starts taking off his jacket while asking him how long as he been in. The Missouri Kid stands up while answering him and Paris is now laying down on his side and the jacket is nowhere to been seen.
Continuity mistake: When they dump The Missouri Kid in the bath water, they turn him upside down and dump him into the barrel. You can see that it is not Burgess Meredith and a much younger man. He even grabs the edge of the barrel so he can help guide himself in. You then see one of those flim "flicks", where the camera angle has changed just a bit, before The Missouri kid rises from under the water.
