Romeo and Juliet

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the Capulet's party, the revelers form a circle around a minstrel and ask him to sing. Before he begins, he peels off his mask and tosses on the floor. The next shot from a distance shows Juliet running towards the circle, and the minstrel is still wearing his mask. The following shot shows the minstrel up close again with his mask off.
