    Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When on the roof of the chapel at Torrecastro, Cooper indicates a Frenchmen (who had shot at him) with the words "Left - three o'clock". This is a phrase which would only be used by someone familiar with a clock face (which Cooper may not be) and three o'clock indicates 90 degrees to the right (not left). He then actually aims slightly towards the right of the square (more like one o'clock).

    In one scene, Vivar is seen to light a cigar with what appears to be a pistol with no barrel. This is, in fact, a flintlock fire-starter - pretty much exactly a pistol grip and lock with no barrel, designed to ignite tinder by means of the shower of sparks created when the flint in the lock strikes the steel frizzen.
