    • There is a nonsense rumour going around that an extra in the wizard of oz killed himself and he can be seen doing so in the movie I think it is when Dorothy meets the Tin Man. In actual fact however what is happening in the background is that a bird has spread its wings, I find that very ammusing that anybody would mistake that for somebody killing themself.

    • Good discussion here regarding what is a TRUE blooper. I often think of The Searchers, and the scene where Pat Wayne charges into the house to deliver the message from Col. Greenhill. According to Pat's own testimony, the entire scene could be consider by some to be a "blooper" because no one was saying their lines, and everyone was interrupting him when he was trying to say his. All of those interruptions by Ward Bond and Duke Wayne were NOT in the script--but it was great stuff and by no means a blooper. I guess for me, I would have a high standard to declare something a "blooper," for instance, clear factual errors, like the Custer death/Duke Calendar, and the terrible editing of the dummy/Mississippi scene in El Dorado, and the dead Indian breathing in The Searchers.

    • This was kind of a fun thread to read! I noticed one blooper in El Dorado that most don't catch. When Mitchum goes to the saloon to get his nightly bottle. When he leaves the saloon, the hat brim is curled up. Duke stops him in front of the jail and berates him and Mitchum says they laughed at him. The next scene is from behind Mitchum as he walks toward the jail, and the brim is curled down. Then the next scene is from in front of Mitchum as he enters the jail and the brim is curled up again!

      I don't mind the bloopers, as they show that everyone is fallable to some degree, and no one is perfect. I really don't think they take away from the film at all. El Dorado is still a great film!

    • hi all

      dont know if this could be classed as a blooper but when you watch Operation Pacific when they are showing the torpedos running you can tell that they are being pulled with a wire as you can see it clearly attached to the front of the torpedo along this line you can also tell that this scene was shot in a tank as you can see the shadows on the back wall of the tank.

      also in operation pacific duke gets hurt in the right shoulder when he goes and lies down he lays on this shoulder.

    • Hi every one. Just watched Rio Grande again this weekend. I Have a little continuity blooper to add to list.

      Through the early part of movie the Duke's suspenders show a hole On right side chest . This is the result of the arrow wound he receives at the end of the rescue mission. Obviously filmed out of sequence.

      PS Love reading all the great info and comments from other members.

    • Hi everyone,
      It's great to read the new additions to this thread,
      and thanks to Arthur, who spotted a big one
      on The Commancheros.
      Thanks Arthur,Bob, smokey, and Durham cowboy.
      As Bob says, it doesn't spoil the film at all,
      I think it makes them all that more interesting to watch!

      Best Wishes,
      Keith

    • There is a nice little blooper in the Searchers, when Duke is scalping Scar at the end of the movie, he is also outside the teepee on his horse shooting.

      Rio Bravo has the famous bullet hole appearing and disappearing beside Rick Nelson during the final shootout.

      One of my favourite bloopers is in the Alamo, during the final battle Duke accidentally stands on the head of a dead Alamo defender.

      GSP,

      I have seen the Quiet man many times, but I do not remember Duke with an apple getting of the train, can you enlighten me?

      so when you click on any film, it's all included, in there.

      However, if you have any special one's,

    • Morning Robbie,

      Yes you're right.
      I froze the frame, when the double is looking straight at camera,
      is appears to be Chuck Roberson.

      Incidently, thanks for your remarks,
      in your 'Dead Topics' post

      I have over the last few days, consolidated lots of 'cross'
      threads, into main topics, and it has tidied it up significantly.
      The main problem, is the starting of new threads,
      without noting, what's gone on before.
      Best Wishes
