A machine gun nest ambushes charging Mexicans by cutting down the first three over a wall with a short burst, but as hordes more come over the wall, the machine gun doesn't fire even though the sounds of it firing continue. The gun obviously jammed but the footage was used anyhow with firing sounds dubbed into it.

Factual errors 

Repeated reference is made to the "Conejos hanging", but the hanging for which Villa was guilty of inaction happened in Chupadero. There was no hanging shown or implied in Conejos.
