Shenandoah (1965)

Corrected entry: In the scene where Doug McClure asks Jimmy Stewart to marry Katherine Ross, Jimmy starts hand-rolling a cigar. The shot goes back to Doug "Sir, I love her". The shot goes back to Jimmy and he's lighting up a perfectly wrapped, long, cylindrical stogie that Castro would be proud of. In five seconds? I think not.

Correction: By the time the shot changes to Doug McClure's line, Jimmy Stewart is nearly done. Just before the cut, you can see Stewart wetting the edge of the leaf to seal it off. When the camera returns to him, the cigar is finished and he's working on cutting it in half. All we missed was that very last step, which could have been done in the time allotted.

Continuity mistake: In the middle part of the film, as they look out across the field you can see the shadow of a aeroplane cross the field.

Charlie Anderson: It's no easy job, Sam, to take care of a woman.
Lt. Sam: No, sir.
Charlie Anderson: They expect things they never ask for. And when they don't get them, they ask you why. Sometimes they don't ask... and just go ahead and punish you for not doing something you didn't know you were supposed to do in the first place.
