Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

Factual error: There is a scene where Chitty is pacing the train, which is an 'Austerity' tank engine. This engine was made during WW 2 but the movie takes place in the early 1900s.

Continuity mistake: In the candy-tasting scene with Lord Scrumptious, his head chef blows a whistle and holds it at chest level. In the next shot, Caractucus descends the stairs behind the chef, and now the whistle is down by the chef's side.

Continuity mistake: When Truly accompanies Mr. Potts and the children to the beach, her hair is first in a bun, and then later is worn down around her shoulders when they reach the beach. Also, the tightness or her curls vary from scene to scene while at the beach.

Childcatcher: I don't trust a man who makes toys in a land where children are forbidden.

Question: If Truly Scrumptious' father is 'Lord Scrumptious', then as his daughter, why isn't she 'Lady Scrumptious?'. If I remember correctly, she is referred to as 'Miss Scrumptious'.

Chosen answer: By rules of courtesy titles in the United Kingdom, Truly Scrumptious would inherit no title. Her parents being Lord and Lady Scrumptious, she would be simply Miss Truly Scrumptious. However, if her father were a baron, she would be called "The Honorable Miss Truly Scrumptious." Were her father an earl, duke or marquess, she would THEN be the "Lady Truly Scrumptious." But again, children of a lord and lady do not receive a title. When the lord dies, his oldest son inherits his father's title of lord. If there are no boys, it might pass to the eldest daughter. In this case, only upon her father's death would Truly become "Lady Truly Scrumptious."
