Corrected entry: After it starts raining at the graveyard, John Wayne hands his wife his coat and she puts it on. She doesn't have the coat on when she goes to cuddle with him a split second later.

Correction: Sean only lays the coat over her shoulders. When the lightning/ thunder strikes and she runs into his arms, the coat falls off of her shoulders.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Sean Thornton is formally introduced to Mary Kate Danaher, the match maker, Michaleen Oge Flynn, introduces Sean as being from "Pittsburgh, Massachusetts, USA". Pittsburgh is in Pennsylvania.

Correction: This was done deliberately to show how ignorant Michaleen was about U.S. geography.

Continuity mistake: When John Wayne first meets with the woman at the church, the first time we see her she puts a dark piece of clothing over her head. In the next scene, which is a closer angle, it is gone.
