Best comedy movie continuity mistakes of 1963
Continuity mistake: In the scene where the two men are carrying the coffin with the cross on it down to the crypt, the coffin is being held with the cross pointing towards the last man. But in the next shot the cross is pointing towards the first man, as the coffin has been turned around. Then in the next shot the coffin is in its original position, with the cross pointing towards the last man. There is not enough time for the coffin to rotate this many times between the two men carrying it.
Continuity mistake: In one of the funnier scenes of the movie, a tipsy John Wayne attempts to escort Maureen O'Hara up a flight of stairs while drinking from a bottle of whiskey. They fall to the foot of the stairs, and the bottle is empty. After bopping Wayne on the head with the bottle, O'Hara throws it against the wall, and it's miraculously full again.
Continuity mistake: At the end, when Amelia goes to Donovan's bar, she gives Gilhooley a wrapped present containing a model train set. Amelia then goes into another room to confront Donovan. When she comes out a few minutes later, Gilhooley has completely set up the train and is playing with it. He would not have had enough time to unpack it, much less have it up and running.
