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.

Factual error: The imprisoned Count is crawling through a tunnel with his neighbour prisoner leading the way. His neighbour prisoner has a lit candle showing the way, but when he breathes out, the candle goes out but the 'light' remains. You can clearly see smoke rising from the candle before the scene cuts away. (00:43:25)

Question: In the jail cell, as Richard Harris dies, he tells Jim Caviezel not to commit the crime he now serves. What's the point of this? Telling him not to be an honest man and have a good life and be framed for high treason?

Answer: That's not what he was telling him; Jim Caviezel did not do what he was imprisoned for. Richard Harris is telling him not to do that thing after he gets out. Harris was trying to keep him from trying to get revenge because it would consume him and make him even more bitter.
