The Adventures of Baron Munchausen

Corrected entry: The King of the Moon has a white cloth tying his head to his body while in the bedroom; in the next scene, while on his mechanical bird Sybil, the cloth is black.

Correction: The cloth in the bedroom is silk (appropriate for such a situation) while the straps in the next scene are a dark leather (also appropriate). He puts on some clothes before chasing the Baron so it logically follows that he would change his straps to a material more reliable than silk for the purpose of keeping his head while seeking revenge.
