True Grit

Continuity mistake: At the dinner scene when Mattie Ross is trying to obtain Rooster Cogburn's services, Rooster clears the table, and in the next scene he re-clears the table by pushing everything aside to play cards with Chin Lee.

Continuity mistake: In the scene when John Wayne puts his reins between his teeth and his rifle in his right hand and his pistol in his left, at one point they switch hands.

Continuity mistake: After Kim Darby declines the coffee, John Wayne puts his empty plate in the middle of the table. Immediately in the next shot, the plate is back in front of him with some scraps of food still on it.

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie, after Rooster and Mattie's horse has collapsed, Rooster begins to carry Mattie. You can see that Mattie's blouse has come untucked from her skirt. However, once Rooster has acquired the wagon, Mattie is laid across his lap and her blouse is now tucked back into her skirt.

Continuity mistake: When Rooster is walking out of the court room and meets Mattie on the stairs, his bow tie is different, or tied differently than the one he is wearing when he is being cross-examined.
