Continuity mistake: When Sylvia and Dr. Forrester are in the farm house, Sylvia cooks some eggs, then places the plates of eggs on the table. As she places them down you can see a plate with toast stacked on it. This plate disappears in the next shot of them both sitting down.

Knights of the Round Table picture

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Lancelot runs into and fights Arthur's ambushers, he runs one of them through with his sword. It is visible that he stabs his opponent past the body, but close enough for the appearance.

Sailor of the King picture

Factual error: When the captain of the Essen is interviewing Brown, he claims that "No British light cruiser captain would engage the Essen." In fact, history has shown that RN, RAN and RNZN captains could be depended upon to place their ships in harm's way against a superior enemy. River Plate, the Jervis Bay, HMAS Sydney, and Craddock at Coronel are ample proof of Nelson's influence..."No captain can do very wrong if he places his ship alongside that of the enemy."

Visible crew/equipment: John Payne leaves a theater after getting into a fight after being tricked by actress friend Evelyn Keyes during an audition. As he walks out the backstage to the back entrance, the shadow of a crew member (possibly the camera operator) can be seen on the wall as Payne passes by.
