Romancing the Stone

Continuity mistake: As Jack presents Joan with the necklace when they are seated at dinner during the festival scene, the one he is holding in his hand is a beaded necklace, to attract more light for the further camera shot, only when the close up of the table occurs it is a completely different necklace.

Suggested correction: Jack actually hands her a lot of necklaces not just one, Joan picks out only the one with the heart and puts it on. Of course we know why she chooses that one, but if you look when they get up to dance you can see the other necklaces in a pile on the table, pearls included with the other gold necklaces. I always wondered why he just didn't buy her the one, why did he buy her the bunch then just leave them on the table? (Yes I'm sure they got them when they were done dancing).

Continuity mistake: When Ralph drives off with Zolo in the car and turns around in the road, the bus passengers are shown further up the road. However, once the car is in forward motion, they are not seen again.

Trivia: The end credits of the film don't have the usual "No animals were harmed during the filming..." Maybe this is because when the Little Mule 4WD is being chased, it clearly runs over a chicken.

Question: What is it likely that the stone (an emerald, I gather) was worth in 1984 US dollars?

Answer: Any emerald over 1 carat in that beautiful cut and condition would probably go for over 250 million. Real emeralds over 5 carats are rare and the price goes up exponentially after 2 or 3 carats. 305,000 per carat after 5. So yeah that one was probably like 800 or more carats.
