She recruits a tough old marshal, "Rooster" Cogburn (John Wayne), because he has "grit", and a reputation of getting the job done. The two are joined by a Texas Ranger, La Boeuf (Glen Campbell), who is looking for the same man (Jeff Corey) for a separate murder in Texas.

  • Goof (continuity error): SPOILER: After La Boeuf succumbs to his head injury and falls off his horse, Rooster turns him over to look at his face. La Boeuf rolls over with his feet crossed. As Rooster and Mattie are riding off and look back at him, his feet are now splayed out.
  • Goof (continuity error): SPOILER: When Rooster and Mattie are trying to get out of the snake hole, Rooster goes to pick up Mattie's father's gun. In that shot, his gun belt is suddenly missing.
  • Goof (boom mic visible): (at around 1 min) The boom mic's shadow is clearly seen on La Boeuf as he sits down by the dinner table after taking off his spurs.
  • Goof (revealing mistake): When Mattie is riding her horse across the river, the water doesn't appear to be flowing, indicating this sequence was shot in a lake or pond.
  • Goof (continuity error): After Mattie rides her horse across the river and when Rooster and Le Boeuf won't let her on the ferry, her clothes are perfectly dry.
  • Goof (anachronisms): Kim Darby's hairstyle is from the 1960s.
  • Goof (anachronisms): When Mattie receives the money from Stonehill, the money is clearly 20th century issued US currency, and it is both smaller in size and much less intricate than the currency issued by the federal government in the years following the US Civil War.
  • Goof (revealing mistake): In the shootout between Rooster and Pepper's gang, the film reverses for a few seconds. Rooster's eye patch moves to the right eye, the bandanna switches sides, and his rifle and pistol change hands.
  • Goof (continuity error): When Mattie approaches the ferry pulling the horse to join Cogburn and La Boeuf, her shadow indicates the sun's position to the right. Subsequently, all of them are shown from behind, with their shadows indicating the sun's position to the right again.
  • Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Mattie Ross' gun is a Colt Walker, not a Colt Dragoon as stated by Rooster. (The movie's producers wanted to use the larger Walker to enhance the image of a little girl using such a large gun.)
  • Goof (anachronisms): Some of the paths Mattie, Rooster, and La Boeuf ride down have obviously been formed by automobile tires.
  • Goof (anachronisms): Although the date on Frank Ross's grave indicates he died in 1880, the rifle Cogburn carries is a Winchester Model 1892 saddle carbine.
  • Goof (revealing mistake): When Rooster hits La Boeuf with his rifle right after Mattie is captured, the rifle bends. It is obviously a rubber gun.
  • Goof (anachronisms): At the cabin, while waiting for Ned Pepper, Rooster tells Mattie he lost his eye in the battle of Lone Jack, Missouri, just outside of Kansas City. Kansas City was not given its present name until 1889. Whilst this is technically true for Kansas City, Kansas (although part of the current city had been known unofficially as Kansas City in the past), Kansas City, Missouri was incorporated in 1853.
  • Goof (continuity error): The white markings on Little Blackie's legs and face change throughout the movie.
  • Goof (anachronisms): When Mattie is emerging from her sleeping area when they are close to Lucky Ned Pepper's hideout, it is evident that she is wearing a form of black nylon tights. Not something you would see in the 1870's.
  • Goof (continuity error): SPOILER: After he kills Frank Ross, Chaney kneels by the body to steal the money. Then Frank's head is on Chaney's left-hand side. In the next shot, Frank's head appears on the opposite side.
  • Goof (continuity error): When Rooster gives LeBoeuf his jacket to cover up the chimney at the dugout where Moon and Quincy were, Le Boeuf throws the jacket over his horse's saddle and sits on top of the jacket. When he emerges on the other side of the river, the jacket is in front of him over the horn of the horse's saddle.
  • Goof (revealing mistake): When Rooster brings the bodies of the men killed in the shootout at the dugout to Boots Finch, he says that he's looking for Ned Papper. Finch replies, "If you're looking for Little Ned Pepper..." The character's name is "Lucky" Ned Pepper, not "Little".
  • Goof (errors in geography): After the characters in Fort Smith, Arkansas ride into Indian territory, there are many shots of rocky peaks and snow-covered mountains. There are no such mountains within several hours' automobile drive of Fort Smith. Fort Smith is located in the Arkansas River Valley with the Ozark Mountains to the north and the Ouachita Mountains to the south. Both the Ozarks and the Ouachitas extend into eastern Oklahoma. The Boston Mountains north of town, which are part of the Ozarks, are green, tree-covered mountains. The Winding Stair Mountains in Oklahoma, where much of the action takes place, are in the Ouachitas. They are about 70 highway miles from Fort Smith.
  • Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Rooster mentions that he lived for some years in Cairo, Illinois, but he mispronounces the name of the town. The local pronunciation is KAY-row.

  • Goof (continuity error): When LaBoeuf and Rooster are discussing the venture at Chen Lee's, Mattie repeatedly changes position between shots.
  • Goof (continuity error): When Mattie is talking to Ned Pepper while he is watching for Rooster and La Boeuf to appear on the "bald ridge to the north", from a higher rock Harold yells "Hey, Ned!" to alert him to their appearance. At that point Mattie and Ned are facing almost the same way, toward the front, and then Mattie swings around to her right to where Harold is, Ned Pepper swings somewhat to his right, but not far. Then the next shot (a somewhat longer shot) shows Mattie and Ned facing each other, with Mattie looking straight left and Ned straight right.
  • Goof (continuity error): La Boeuf puts the serving spoon back in the bowl and picks up his fork. The next shot shows him putting the serving spoon back in the bowl and picking up a piece of chicken.
  • Goof (anachronisms): Rooster reports Lucky Ned Pepper had robbed the KATY Flyer, a train that did not start running until 1896, long after the time in which the story is set.
  • Goof (continuity error): SPOILER: In the snake pit, Rooster ties the rope around his waist. Mattie asks him to get her father's gun and when he turns to grab it, the rope is gone. When he turns around to pick up Mattie, the rope is back around his waist.
  • Goof (anachronisms): When Mattie visits Little Blackie at the corral prior to the purchase, electrical power lines can be clearly seen in the background.
