Best drama movie mistakes of 1944

National Velvet picture

Continuity mistake: When Velvet and her mother are sitting and talking in the attic, her mother pours some gold coins into Velvet's lap. Velvet is sitting back on her feet, but a few seconds later, she raises up on her knees to hug her mother. The coins should go spilling everywhere, but we never see or hear them.

The Way Ahead picture

Factual error: At the beginning of the film, just after the credits, there is a definition of the word 'army'. It is claimed to be from the 'Encyclopaedia Brittanica', an obvious spelling error - "Brittanica" should have one T and 2 N's.
