Tarzan

Factual error: When the humans are capturing the gorillas, Clayton fires about 15 rounds from his double rifle. This is pretty impressive, considering this is the early 1900's.

Factual error: During the song "You'll be in my Heart", lemurs are shown in the tree that Kala and baby Tarzan are in. "Tarzan" is set somewhere in Africa's equatorial jungle, as this is the only place gorillas live. Lemurs are native to the island of Madagascar.

Factual error: The weight of an elephant is nowhere near that of a large cargo ship so even if Tantor was able to climb up the side of the ship the ship shouldn't have moved.

Continuity mistake: When child Tarzan jumps in the lake with the elephants the water is only up to the elephants' feet, but the underwater shot shows the elephants swimming.

Question: Throughout the movie we rarely see Clayton reload his gun. It looks like a twin barrel shotgun. During the final fight between Tarzan and Clayton how could he have fired more than 2 rounds without reloading it?

Chris Thomson
