The Count of Monte Cristo

Visible crew/equipment: Very near the end, when they are doing a pan-out of the deserted building, there are three of the five characters standing in plain view. The other two are in the building, one is helping the other cope with a wound. When they do the pan-out, look through the bottom right "window hole." There is someone standing there, and it can't be any of the five people mentioned. (02:05:35)

Visible crew/equipment: In the shot where the rat is being lured into the cell by Dantes and the priest, right before the cup is pulled away and the trapdoor is shut you can see a crewman's booted feet for a brief moment. Presumably to keep the rat going in the right direction. (00:44:20)

Visible crew/equipment: While Edmond is Fighting Fernand in the dining room there is a crew member that is in one of the mirrors for a second.

Revealing mistake: About seven seconds after Mercedes screams, "No!" at the climax of the movie, there is a shot of all the characters involved in that scene. If you look out the door you can see a white car drive by. (01:59:40)

Question: In the prison, the priest has several books, a chair, table, etc. Where did he get these things? I assume he wasn't given them, as the prisoners are expected to live with absolutely no creature comforts. He could have made the chair and table, but out of what? He wouldn't have been given any materials. How would he make something out of nothing?

Answer: Priests, as men of God, tend to be considered differently from others - it's reasonable to think that the guards would have allowed him a few privileges denied the other prisoners.
