As Pat Leaves Fort Sumner, a young boy throws stones at him. In longer shots, Pat and the boy are in shadow, but the close shots of the boy show him in bright sunshine with clear sharp shadows defined.

Factual errors 

In 1881, while Pat Garrett and his posse are shooting at Billy and his gang, who are holed up in a remote stone building, Garrett calls to Billy and says that he is wanted for the killing of Buckshot Roberts. Billy yells back that the Roberts shooting had taken place a year ago. In fact, Roberts was shot and killed in 1878 - three years earlier - by Charley Bowdre, another member of Billy's gang.
