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.

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.

Continuity mistake: During the extended fight scene, Will Danaher and Sean Thornton go crashing into a hay stack. As they emerge, they announce to the crowd that they are going to fight by the Marquis de Queensbury Rules. As they make the announcement, Sean Thornton's back is covered in hay. As he turns, the camera cuts to follow him, and there is instantly no hay on his back.
