Continuity mistake: The first time we see Maid Marian in the bath, it's full of bubbles. When she stands up, they've all vanished in a matter of seconds!

Revealing mistake: The paving slab Broomhilda falls onto and supposedly breaks is already broken.

Continuity mistake: When Blinkin is falling out of his look-out post, he upsets the ladder. But when he hits the ground and is walking around there is no ladder.

Continuity mistake: During the opening, the amount of flame changes on the wide shots of the frontmost house.

Revealing mistake: You can see that a huge rectangular hole has been cut into the ceiling of Latrines boudoir and filled in with balsa wood for when Rottingham gets catapulted through.

Continuity mistake: Marian has her crown straight, close to her forehead, but during her conversation with Robin it falls off and she puts it close to the nape of the neck. A split second afterwards her shadow is seen through the blanket and the crown is back on the forehead (as we confirm when she walks away).

Sacha

Revealing mistake: At the start when the fire arrows are hitting the hay roofs, you can clearly see wet patches of petrol or kerosene on the roofs, so that the fire can ignite quickly.

Continuity mistake: When Maid Marian jumps off of the balcony onto her horse, her dress flies up. When she lands on her horse, however, the dress is around her ankles.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Maid Marian is in the tub singing, her hair style changes as the view of her face does. For example, as she is singing straight into the camera, her curly hair hangs around her face with just a tiny bit pulled back on the sides; when the shot changes to a side view of her singing the hair has been pulled away almost completely from her face.

Continuity mistake: When the horse moves under the balcony for Broomhilda to drop down on, we see the horse standing in the middle of a dirt area. When Broomhilda jumps, the horse moves to its left and Broomhilda lands on the sidewalk, but the horse was not standing on the sidewalk in the first place.

Visible crew/equipment: When the Sheriff of Rottingham is hanging upside-down under his horse and talking to Robin, look at the legs of the "horse": one of them has the visible joint of the knee (obvious as the light hits it when it bends) and the other doesn't look like it's actually touching the ground at all, though from the angle it looks as though the leg was intended to be seen as weight-bearing.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the scene with the Sheriff of Rottingham and Don Giovanni discussing how to get rid of Robin, just after Don throws something at the guy on his left, the Sheriff leans forward with his arms on the table, then in the very next shot he is sitting back in his chair with his arms nowhere near the table - this happens a couple of times in this scene.

Add time

Audio problem: When the Sheriff of Rottingham is talking to Prince John about the bad news, after the sheriff tells "John" he says "Are you kidding? That's terrible news." You can hear the audio 'clip' or max out as he raises his voice. As a result that line sounds fuzzy.

Continuity mistake: During the archery contest, the shots switch back and forth between the action around Robin and the action of the crowd. Several times if you look at the crowd behind Robin, it is not the same as the crowd shots before and after the shot of Robin.

Sol Parker

Continuity mistake: In the archery contest scene, at the point where Marian agrees to marry Rottingham he puts his hand on the balcony and looks up to talk to her. When she looks down, his hand isn't there.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When the 'really white boy' is running from the Sheriff of Rottingham he comes through some trees in which rays of the sun are visible. As the sheriff and his men ride through there are more rays. When they leave there are no rays. In the next shot when the boy is talking to Robin the rays are back. Obviously this scene was shot in different order and throughout the day.

Factual error: During the whole movie, we can see wooded mountains around where the movie is taking place, first of all, these don't exist in England and second, during the end shot where we see a view of the entire area, there are no mountains.

Factual error: During the banquet scene, Robin slams the heavy carcass of a wild pig onto the table in front of Prince John. But throughout the fight, when the Sheriff and John are hiding, the carcass of the pig is being moved with the slightest movement as if it's hollow. A real wild pig of that size would not be moved so easily.

Revealing mistake: In the arrow contest, as Robin was about to be assassinated, Blinkin grabs the arrow. If you look closely, as his arm reaches out, you see that Blinkin already has the arrow in his hand.

Movie Nut

Revealing mistake: When Robin receives the locket from Blinkin, Robin takes the locket off his arm, where Blinkin placed it, and over his head onto his neck, but the locket quickly opens in this action and the actors continue on as if they hadn't just accidentally opened the locket which we later discover must be broken to find what's truly inside.

Add time

Revealing mistake: When Blinkin falls out of the look-out post and crashes into the large tree, you can see it wobble.
