Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the film, Elinor is gardening and has dirt and mud all over her hands. Upon realising Edward is riding toward the house, she hurriedly wipes her hands on her apron, smearing a good amount of dirt on it. When she then removes the apron while standing inside the house, both the apron and her hands are barely dirty.
Factual error: The roads show only two wheel tracks, there is no wear on the center of the road, from either horses or oxen. Most pre-auto movies miss this.
Factual error: Elinor mentions the Russian city of Vladivostok. However, Vladivostok was founded in the late 19th century, several decades after this movie was set.
