Dracula

Character mistake: At the beginning of the scene where the vampire hunters leave London in pursuit of Dracula, Jonathan narrates, "By train we can reach the Romanian port in Varna in three days." However, Varna was (and still is) a Bulgarian seaport (this can even be seen on the map showing the Turkish invasion of Eastern Europe in the movie's prologue, and on the map that Jonathan studies aboard the train at the beginning of the film).

Character mistake: When Jonathan is closing the transactions in Dracula's castle, there is a close-up of Renfield's card, which says "R. N. Reinfeild." However, the end titles spell the character's name as "R. M. Renfield", like in the novel, and Dr. Seward also refers to the character by this name in the first scene where he is recording his diary on the phonograph cylinder, just like he does in the book.

Revealing mistake: Dracula has no reflection, as seen when Jonathan is shaving, and when Dracula buys the newspaper in London. But when he assists Jonathan with the shaving, every time he dips the blade into the water bowl, his red robe can be seen reflected in the bowl. (00:26:40)

Trivia: The marriage scene between Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder was performed by an actual Romanian Orthodox priest. Contrary to rumours this made the marriage legal, that wouldn't be possible without corresponding paperwork, which of course they wouldn't have had.
