Gone With The Wind

Audio problem: After Scarlett leaves the hospital in disgust she runs into Rhett. When she climbs into his buggy she asks him if he can take her to her Aunt's, but her lips aren't moving.

Continuity mistake: When Rhett pours Mammy a drink on the day of Bonnie's birth he has a cigar in his mouth. When the camera angle changes he is holding the cigar in the hand that holds the glass.

Continuity mistake: When Rhett visits Scarlett after Frank Kennedy's death she keeps weeping into her handkerchief. But all of a sudden there is no handkerchief and she is wiping her nose with her hands.

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Rhett is saying goodbye to Scarlett before he leaves her on the road to Tara alone, he throws his hat behind him onto the road and takes Scarlett into his arms. However, a few moments later, he picks the hat up from the fence at his side along with his coat.

Continuity mistake: When Scarlett shoots the Yankee intruder her bun is tied into a hairnet. When she searches his body and drags him away the net covers most of her head.

NancyFelix

Factual error: When Atlanta is in chaos, there is a shot of a fire engine rushing down the street. Two shots later is a wide shot of the street with a giant red and white radio tower visible in the distance.

Visible crew/equipment: When Mammy catches Scarlett trying on a pretty bonnet when she is supposed to be in mourning, when the camera pans wide to show the room, in the mirror on wall behind Scarlett you can see the shadow of the grip holding the mic above Scarlett.

Character mistake: Prior to the Scarlett's Pledge scenes, Mammy Informs Scarlett (while they're standing out side of Scarlett's father study door) "We ain't got nothing but radishes in the garden." The next scenes show Scarlett walking through the fence that surrounds the garden. walks up to where the radishes are growing, digs one up, wipes it off and starts to eat it. This actually is a carrot, not a radish.

Continuity mistake: When Scarlett sees Frank Kennedy while she's working in the hospital, there is something on the left side of Frank's face in the close up shot of him. In the next shot that shows Scarlett and Frank, it is no longer there.

Continuity mistake: When Gerald O'Hara comes back from his afternoon ride he meets Scarlett in the fields. In the middle of the conversation, while they are walking along, the formerly bright sky all of a sudden turns to a dusky red, and Scarlett has a new hairdo that covers her ears.

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When Uncle Peter is chasing Aunt Pittipat's last rooster the poor creature passes by the same stack of wood twice in successive shots.

NancyFelix

Visible crew/equipment: When the O'Hara family does their prayer you see two boom mike shadows on the ceiling.

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of part 2 Scarlett walks by her sisters who are working in the field, carrying two water buckets. They start arguing, and Scarlett slaps Suellen, without any indication that she had put the buckets down. In the next shot we see her bending forward to pick up the buckets again.

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When Scarlett is flirting with the Tarleton twins dogs and horses in the background appear and disappear in a very discontinuous way.

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When the protagonists drive through the burning, abandoned Atlanta, a few looters are after the horse. Rhett knocks down one of them while the buggy is still moving, and in the next shot they are back at the spot where they were before being attacked.

NancyFelix

Revealing mistake: When Scarlett runs out of the Wilkes's house calling for Rhett after Melanie dies, she bumps into a pillar that supposedly helps support the house/porch. The pillar wriggles quite violently at her touch, revealing it as a simple stage prop and not part of the house.

Continuity mistake: When Aunt Pittipat leaves Atlanta Scarlett and Dr. Meade are standing in the walkway to the house and talking. The moment the aunt drives off Scarlett is standing all by herself (and loudly cursing Melanie and her baby).

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: After Frank Kennedy's death Scarlett is drinking in her bedroom. She takes his picture, which is standing on the dressing table, and turns it on its face. In one close-up shot this picture is placed on a piece of lace, in all others not. When she finally leaves the room the picture is gone completely, and also all other things on the dresswing table are rearranged.

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: After Ashley has been shot during the raid of the shantytown Scarlett sits on his bed, holding his hand against her bosom. When Rhett asks her if she isn't interested in her husband's fate she is seen from the front, with no sign of Ashley's hand.

NancyFelix

Revealing mistake: After Frank Kennedy's death Scarlett is sitting in her room, "mourning" and drinking. When she hears Rhett's carriage she goes to the window. In this moment you see shadows, either from crew members or equipment, cast through the room, especially visible on the bottle on the table. There is also some funny shift of the backdrop outside the window.
