Continuity

Factual errors 

When Gus is dying in the doctor's office after Call comes to see him, there are crickets chirping at times. However, it is winter time and snowing outside. There would not likely be crickets chirping in winter Montana.

Miscellaneous

Revealing mistakes 

When Gus goes to shoot up the Indian encampment with July Johnson, count the number of Indians who "go down" from being hit versus the number of shots fired. One more Indian dies than the number of shots fired.
