Continuity Problems Can GIF in Your Way

Originally published by me at CogDogLab (see it there)

My latest video watching was Clint Eastwood’s western Hang “em High (1968), his first non spaghetti one. The story of the honest guy done wrong, his quest for revenge, is also played out on the balance of power and justice in the opening of the Oklahoma territory, as well as the seemingly public interest in displayes of punishment.

Plus you have Alan Hale Jr as a bad guy (Oh Skipper), Bruce Dern as well (who you expect in that role), and even Dennis Hopper in a minor role.

I am watching movies now for GIFfable moments, and have several lined up. But it was my reading of the numerous continuity errors that i started looking at that title sequence for the white car in the background. I did finally spot it, wow, it could not be more than a few pixels, but with a bit more analysis and image processing, there are quite a few more problems that seemed to have slipped into the print.

I would think a big production would be a bit more careful.

I will slip this into the ds106 GIFfest as a Goof GIF, an assignment added by Emily Strong.

I’ve got some more scenes to do!

The opening animation sequence would be fun to do as well, see the trailer:

PS You can catch the entire movie in 10 minute clip segments on the YouTube, pretty good quality too.

CogDogLab is a Wordpress.com blog I used to experiment with that platform and as a backup blog just in case this one is misbehaving!
