Anachronisms 

The clothing worn in the film is not period correct. This includes men's shirts which button fully down the front (not worn until the 1920s), pants with belt loops (again 1920s) and cowboy hats which were not only not in style, but that weren't even manufactured during that era.

The race relations shown in the film were more like those of the late 1960s when the film was made, rather than the 1880s setting.

Despite most of the men during the 1880s having facial hair, the film shows surprisingly few men who do. Being clean shaven in eras before running water was difficult and the custom was for most men to have full beards and mustaches.

All of the characters have perfect, or nearly perfect, dental work. Considering that modern dental practices only became common and affordable in the 1950s, this would not be possible.

The women in the film have hairstyles which are clearly set using hairspray. Hairspray was not commonly available (nor even invented) until after WWII.

When Rev. Rudd opens the cut-out bible before shooting Nick Evers, the left page header shows the chapter is Exodus and the header of right page (the first cut-out page) shows the chapter is Leviticus. Later, when he opens the bible to shoot Van, the left page has a large "Leviticus" chapter title partway down, which it didn't have before.

In the stampede sequence, when the stunt performer doubling for Dean Martin dives under the buckboard, his hat falls off. Switch to the close-up of Dean Martin grabbing the rear axle and the hat is back on his head.

Factual errors 

The windmill is near the edge of a cliff that is hundreds of feet high and far above the water table, which would be some distance below the bottom of the canyon.
