Sense and Sensibility

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: Marianne quotes Hartley Coleridge's Sonnet VII to Elinor ("Is love a fancy or a feeling?") to inquire about her feelings for Edward. However, this sonnet was published for the first time in 1833 - some 22 years after Sense & Sensibility takes place in 1811.

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.

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.
