Continuity 

Travers rides from town to recover the saddlebags riding a grey horse, and swaps horses with Yak for a bay or chestnut one. Yet the two men who follow him make no comment about this obvious change.

When Travers is recovering the saddle bags, he is followed by two men. They observe him from a distance under the shade of a tree, but in the close shot they are in full sun.

There are at least three chase sequences where the close shots show a different background to the long shots - Anita leaving the ranch, Travers and Yak pursuing the wagon with Anita and Matlock, and when Travers pursues the man who tried to ambush him as he left the Matlock ranch.

When Travers jumps into the river to rescue Anita, it is at a noticeably different point to where the wagon went in.

The countryside changes markedly in shots when the wagon goes into the river. The wagon is seen on a flat road in a valley and then the next shot shows it on a road on a steep hill beside a river.

Matlock clambers out of the river completely drenched but his clothes are dry when he steals the canoe. Similarly Travers' clothes are completely dry when he captures Matlock.

Travers gives Yak the money from the saddlebag, who puts it in his shirt. Later, Travers meets Yak in town, and Yak takes the money out of his shirt twice and gives it to Travers.

Factual errors 

As Travers and Yak are putting the two bad guys into the jail cell, the one in the black hat is still carrying his holstered gun. No law man would allow a prisoner to keep his weapon at any time.
