  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): After the initial gunfight, Rooster Cogburn is bringing all the dead men back to the town. The deputy sheriff is lying dead over the saddle on the first horse behind Rooster. If you watch you will see him lift his head independent of the horse's movement and then moments later he slumps down again to play dead.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): The raft is stopped by a rope stretched across the river. It is obvious that the rope didn't stop the raft and when Rooster cuts the rope it is not taut from the tension of holding the raft but just laying in the water and obviously not holding the raft at all.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): In the first attack on Rooster and company 3 small bottles of nitro are thrown like hand grenades. The explosions are noticeably distant from where the bottles land.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): The stunt doubles for John Wayne, Katharine Hepburn and Richard Romancito are very obvious in the riverboat scenes.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): The cases of nitroglycerin at issue in the movie are labeled "Hercules Nitroglycerin." However, the Hercules Powder Company, which did produce nitroglycerin, did not come into existence until 1912, a result of an antitrust action brought against E.I. du Pont. As the movie plainly takes place in the late 1800s, Hercules could not have produced the nitroglycerin at issue.
  • Movie Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): Just before Rooster sends Wolf out to keep watch on the big flat rock, he talks about Chen Lee and General Sterling Price. When he says "General Sterling Price" in that scene, his lips don't match the words being said. You can also hear the audio change back and forth.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When they are on the raft at night, Eula and Rooster are talking. When the camera is on Rooster, we see the background moving as if he is facing downstream. Similarly, when Eula is in shot, she appears to moving downstream. As they are facing each other, it is impossible for them to be both facing downstream.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Rooster Cogburn is fending off the pursuing bandits, he fires up at them on a rocky hillside from below on the river on a raft with a Gatling gun. In one scene as he fires away with the Gatling, the camera angle is from above both the bandits and Cogburn and shows multiple bullets hitting the rocks just around the bandits feet which are on a flat ledge jutting out on the hill and is an obviously impossible spot to hit due to the location of the Gatling gun and the angle of the ledge.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): In the confrontation between Miss Goodnight (Katherine Hepburn) and Judge Parker (John McIntire) in the closing moments of the film, he acts as though he has never heard Cogburn (John Wayne) called by his true name, Reuben. However, in the courtroom scene at the beginning of "True Grit," the same character (with James Westerfield in the role) is sitting at the bench as the bailiff (Dennis McMullen) clearly calls "Marshal Reuben J. Cogburn" to the stand.
  • Movie Goof (errors in geography): The movie is set in Arkansas (per the court scene immediately following the opening), but features mountains, a river canyon, and other natural features totally unlike anything in Arkansas. Not surprisingly, these features are found in Oregon, where the movie was shot.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): As Rooster, Eula, and Wolf ride quickly through the woods after first spotting Hawk's gang, Rooster wears a coat, then just a shirt in the long shot, and the coat again.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): At the beginning of the movie Rooster's deputy gets shot along with 4 desperadoes - 3 at the table and 1 hiding in the corner. Rooster then rides back to town with the deputy's body and only 3 of the desperadoes. What happened to the 4th desperado's body?
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): When Rooster gets the Pepperbox out to give to Wolf, he says "I got me a 22 Pepperbox." The bore in the end of the barrel is to big for a 22 cal, it is more like a 36 cal, which was the most common caliber used.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): Breed (Anthony Zerbe) is clearly shown taking three bottles of nitroglycerin from a crate, and you can see he is holding three bottles as he rides down the hill. A wide shot shows the first two bottles being thrown, then a closer shot of the third bottle being thrown, but in that shot you can see he is holding another bottle of nitroglycerin in his non-throwing hand, which would make four bottles total.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When drunken Rooster starts to stand up after target practice, his rifle is in his hand. But when the scene cuts and he walks away, there is not a rifle in is hand.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Rooster and Eula are handing the bottle of whiskey back and forth, the level of whiskey in the bottle changes between shots.
