The steamboat "President" in the background near the end was built in 1924 and then known as "Cincinnati". She was not given her name until 1934, while the events in the movie take place in 1899.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

As Nobody is standing in the water waiting on a fish to come up and take the bait, there is a cricket on the water but it makes the sound of a fly of some sort. A cricket doesn't make a buzzing noise, not even in the water.

Character error 

In Jack's first scene, he is told that his ship "sails the 21st." The telegram he receives in the saloon reminds him that the ship sails in 16 days, which would make the current date the 5th of the month. In the subsequent cemetery scene, however, Jack gives the date as June 3, 1899.

Continuity 

When Jack Beauregard and Nobody have their first street showdown, the sunlight and shadows clearly indicate late afternoon. Then Jack looks out in the distance and sees the Wild Bunch riders, who then ride into town. Now suddenly the sun and shadows indicate late morning or mid-day.

When Nobody is arriving with the train to the place of Jack's final showdown with the wild bunch, we see in most scenes telegraph poles along the track. At the end Jack decides to have his fight, and when the scene changes to the panorama view with the whole length of the train all telegraph poles are gone.

Opening Scene. In the barbershop when the would-be bushwacker has lifted the shaving cream brush out of the shaving cream cup and rotates it to stuff it into the barber's mouth, it is clean and dry. As he then lifts it to the barber's mouth and actually stuffs it in there is shaving cream all over it and subsequently, all over the barber's mouth once it's inserted.

On the Street of Pleasure, Nobody meets a rude stilt walker and cuts him down to size. The sunlight first appears behind the stilt walker, then to his right, then his left, then in front, and then from behind once more, all in less than sixty seconds.

The photographer is shown using flash powder to illuminate the gunfight; since the shootout takes place in bright daylight, this is unnecessary, and wouldn't give enough light to be useful at the distance shown anyway.

Miscellaneous 

When the wild bunch is riding up to the train toward the end of the movie you can visibly see a tire laying out in the field.

Revealing mistakes 

The "gold" bars being loaded into the train are obviously fake slugs of undetermined material. You can clearly see the brush strokes of the gold paint that was used to create the illusion of a gold bar.
