The Count of Monte Cristo

New this month 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.

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)

Continuity mistake: That must be some damn good string that Mercedes wraps around her finger - 16 years and it's not even dirty or frayed. (00:15:00 - 01:51:15)

Trivia: Director Kevin Reynolds shot two versions of the scene with Villefort and Monte Cristo, one in which the pistol is loaded and one with the pistol not loaded. The original cut of the film had the loaded pistol, but it was changed after test audiences expressed their preference for an unloaded pistol scenario, thus having Villefort be forced to go to prison and suffer as Edmond had.
