The Wild Wild West

The Night of the Spanish Curse - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: The last shot before the opening credits, West is knocked out face down with his head resting on this right hand which is on top of his left hand. The very next shot shows West's head resting on his right arm and his left arm is folded underneath his chest.

The Night of Miguelito's Revenge - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: In the scene before the third freeze frame, a large coffin-like rectangular object slides into the water. West is inside this structure. All sides are completely flat. We see the object under water sinking. This one is much shorter, has an oval window, and the side is not completely flat when compared to the one that enters the water. After the freeze frame, West is sitting up with his legs completely extended. The dimensions of this under water container would have to have height and width much longer than the other two containers that have been shown.

The Night of the Egyptian Queen - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: The first shot of West's eyes, after the opening credits, shows them to be a bit different than usual - as if they had an allergic reaction to something. The second, third, and fourth shots show the eyes back to normal, but the shot of him walking the princess to the door shows a very puffy faced West. After walking her to the door when he turns around, West is back to looking like his typical self for the rest of this episode.

The Night of the Gruesome Games - S4-E5

Revealing mistake: Midway in this episode, West is fighting two men in a bedroom. One of them is pushed into the green chest of drawers and breaks it. It is obviously a prop, because the front is a flat piece of painted wood to look like drawers; there are no drawers when this piece falls apart.

The Night of the Juggernaut - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: In the last scene right before West walks into the boxcar, the front of the train shows the number 16, and the square area around the front light is grey with swirl designs above and below the light. At the end of this scene, the last shot is of the front of the train, and it is showing the number 8 with the square area around the front light is red.

The Night of the Big Blackmail - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: Before and after the first freeze frame, West's hair is combed from the right side to left. During the next scene when West's hat comes off during the fight, his hair is combed from the left side. In the next scene in the boxcar, his hair is back to being combed from the right. In the last scene of this episode when West is in the boxcar, he has a completely different hair cut. It is much shorter than in the previous scene, very flat looking, and is parted on the left. This last shot makes Mr. West appear to have a receding hairline.

The Night of the Death-Maker - S3-E24

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of this episode when West gets into the casket, the width of the head area is wider than the foot area of the casket. There are only two circular hand grips on a side. When the two monks are carrying it to the furnace, the casket is symmetrically shaped with the head and foot areas being the same width, and there are three round hand grips on the side. Right before the third freeze frame when the monks are in front of the furnace, the casket is back to the original shape with the head area wider than the foot area.

The Night of the Amnesiac - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, West is shot and falls off the stage coach. He falls to the ground with both arms stretched out horizontally. As the stage coach leaves, his left arm is positioned along side his body. One of the villains throws West's hat, and it lodges between his left hand and body. When West is found unconscious, the hat is resting on his left shoulder.

The Night of the Undead - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of this episode, West crashes through a window and tears his right upper sleeve directly below the shoulder. When he exits the door into the cave and meets Gordon, the rip is no longer there.

The Night of the Underground Terror - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: After the third freeze frame, there is an outside fight. West has a major rip in his pants on the left inner seam from the knee to almost his waist - showing his white underwear during the fight. After the camera shot to Gordon and then back to West, his pants are now miraculously mended in the front and inner left leg area with a new large rip on the pant outer right seam from the knee to upper thigh.

The Night of the Arrow - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: In the last scene in the train car before President Grant walks in, two bottles are in the middle of the table (labels facing away from one another) with four glasses behind them. When the President enters and walks towards the table, both bottles are now placed further back (labels are now facing to the front) with the four glass and an ashtray in front of the bottles. After the President refuses a drink of wine, the table is back to the original setup - labels faces away one another and glasses are behind the bottles; the ashtray is no longer there.

The Night of the Arrow - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: In the scene before the second freeze frame appears, West is wearing a white shirt with a black neckerchief and blue corduroy jacket. In the close-up of West being handcuffed, he is wearing a blue vest and a different non-corduroy blue jacket. For the rest of the episode, West wears the original white shirt with black neckerchief and blue corduroy jacket.

The Night of the Running Death - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: In the last scene in the train's box car, after Princess Silva's departure, all three wine glasses are suddenly almost empty when in the shot before, they were more full. Also, both napkins on the table are rearranged between the two table shots.

The Night of the Iron Fist - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: Throughout this episode, the camera shots alternate in showing two trains. After West handcuffs Count Draja on the stage coach, a train is shown with two flags - one on each side of the smokestack (at slanted angles), and the bottom front grill is black. The second time the train appears, the flag is vertical off the side of the train, and the bottom grill has changed to red. The third time the train is shown, there are no flags. The fourth time the train appears, it is the original with two slanted flags and black grill. In the final train shot, the bottom grill has changed to red.

The Night of the Legion of Death - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: Throughout this episode, West's hair keeps switching from being parted on the left and being flat to being combed from the right in a sweeping higher volume style. Before the title appears, in the inside fight scene, it is parted on the right. In the scene after, the part of West's hair has moved to the left side and remains during the scene in the garden house. When West goes through the garden house trap door, right after he enters the home through a secret passage, West's hair is combed from the right with the sweeping more volume hair. After the fight in that room, as he is breaks through the glass, once outside, his hair goes back to being parted on the left and being flat again. The next scene his hair changes to the more full version. West's hair goes flat again when he is with Gordon in the garden house right before the third frozen panel appears (of the five panels in every episode). His hair changes to right combed version when he enters the home with Gordon through the secret passage and remains this way for the rest of the episode.

Trivia: Due to the rigorous stunts he performed, actor Robert Conrad would often rip out the seat of his already too tight pants.
