Stagecoach Seven - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: The number of bad guys in Weaver's gang keeps changing. There are ten riders waiting on the ridge. All ten ride down the hill, but only five arrive at the bottom to rob the stage. Seven ride away afterward, but when they head off again to capture Heyes and Curry, there are only six. And when they surround the way station, there are again seven of them. (00:08:00)

Chinese Honeymoon - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: After the wedding, the new bride kisses Diamond good-bye. She's standing just inches from him, but when the camera angle reverses, she has instantly jumped to a spot several feet away.

Stagecoach Seven - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: Heyes is tied to a chair during the assault on the stage way station. But somehow his hair combs itself neatly back after being all over his forehead. A few shots after that, it's messy again. (00:30:40 - 00:33:05)

Chinese Honeymoon - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: During the wedding scene at the end, Diamond's hair is falling over his forehead in half the shots and combed straight back the rest of the time.

A Fistful of Diamonds - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: Having borrowed the valuable uncut stones from Soapy, Heyes and Curry don't seem able to keep a very good accounting of them. Ten are sent out for evaluation, and twenty-one more are used to salt the fake diamond field. They should be returning thirty-one nuggets to Soapy at the end of the con game. Yet there are fewer than twenty diamonds on the table when Soapy empties the cloth bag. (00:49:50)

A Fistful of Diamonds - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: At the campsite, Binford counts out 19 uncut diamonds that were "found" in the salted field. When that same stash is laid out on his desk later, there are 20 stones. And according to Heyes and Curry, there were 21. (00:33:50)

A Fistful of Diamonds - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: At the bank, we see Curry empty the jewel bag onto Binford's desk. Ten stones fall out. But in subsequent close-ups, there are twenty. Despite this, Heyes asks Binford to write a receipt for "ten little stones that sparkle and glitter a lot." (00:12:20)

Chinese Honeymoon - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: Diamond parks just inches behind an old car and then enters the Chinese restaurant. When he comes out again, the older car is in the same place, but his Plymouth has somehow moved itself back several feet.

The Prisoner (1967)

Checkmate - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: In the opening shots, the Village center is shown without the giant chessboard set up. In the very next shot, it is suddenly fully laid out on the green.

The Prisoner (1967)

Checkmate - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: At the start of the chess match, a man holding a stick climbs the ladder behind the Queen and settles in to watch. As Number 6 and the Queen converse throughout the game, however, both the ladder and the man have vanished. They both reappear behind the Queen as the game is ending.

The Ed Church Case - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: The 8x10 photo Diamond shows the bartender disappears from the bar between shots.

The Prisoner (1967)

Checkmate - S1-E9

Factual error: Several of the chess moves called out over the loudspeaker are not possible with the players in their current positions. The Queen, for instance, is ordered to King three while in her starting position (can't be done). The "Knight to Knight's Bishop three" move is also impossible. When she is free to move to King three, though, the Queen goes there twice - without moving anywhere else in between.

The Prisoner (1967)

The General - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: At the Village cafe, the menu on the table turns itself 90 degrees between the master shot and the close-up. Number 6's hand position and one of the chairs also both change positions instantly.

The Prisoner (1967)

The General - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: In the General's office, the professor pulls the sheet of paper he's been typing on out of the typewriter and inserts it head-first into the computer. When we cut to a close-up of the paper going in, however, it is now being inserted bottom-first.

The Prisoner (1967)

The Schizoid Man - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When the lamp begins spying on him, Number 6's bed sheets and blanket rearrange themselves from messy to neatly tucked in between shots.

The Prisoner (1967)

The Schizoid Man - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When the Village doctors and technicians begin their procedure on the unconscious Number 6, one man folds the sheet and blanket back from his chest. A few shots later, the same man does this again.

The McCreedy Bust - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: In his showdown match with McCreedy, Heyes deals out five cards in each row on the table. But in the next shot, there are six cards in each row. (00:31:30)

Jean G

The McCreedy Bust - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Heyes and Curry walk into the saloon covered with trail dust from head to toe. But when they leave, Heyes' hat is spotless. (00:06:10 - 00:08:30)

The Prisoner (1967)

The Schizoid Man - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: In the aerial shot from the helicopter as it overflies the Village, another "real world" car can be spotted parked next to the Green Dome.

Jean G

The Great Shell Game - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Grace says she's going to Laredo. But when the stagecoach reaches its destination and she gets out, the driver says they're in El Paso. (00:41:20 - 00:43:00)
