A Little Princess

Corrected entry: In the beginning, in India, Sara's dad is telling her how she is going to a school in New York. If you watch, she is holding a doll that she receives later in the film when she first goes into her room. She acts as though she has not seen it before, even though she has.


Correction: It's not the same doll. The doll she is holding has short, straight hair, no hat, and is made of a shiny porcelain. When she receives the Emily doll later on, the doll has long curly hair, a hat, and is not shiny.

Corrected entry: When they are doing their multiplication and the girl messes up on "7x8," when she is saying the wrong answers, Sara is mouthing her lines.


Correction: Sara is acutally mouthing 56, which is the answer to 7 x 8. She is mouthing that, hoping that the girl will get the answer right.

Corrected entry: When Miss Minchin is telling Sara how she is to work as a servant, her lips don't move. It's easy to see for it goes on for a minute.


Correction: Its obvious that the speech is not suppose to go with the actaul film. Its a narration over top of the movement.

Continuity mistake: When Sara is first put in the attic as a servant, she has a long candle with no wax dripping. She puts the candle in a holder and it is short with a lot of wax on it, then the candle is long again.

Becky: Sara... why don't you tell your stories anymore?
Sara Crewe: They're just make-believe. They don't mean anything.
Becky: Oh, but they've always meant something to me. There were days I thought I would die, until I heard you talk about the magic.
Sara Crewe: There is no magic, Becky.

Question: When Sarah and Becky wake up in the morning and the table is covered in food and they have new slippers etc, how did those items get in their room?

Answer: Ram Dass, the servant from the house next door to the school, sneaked the items into the girls' room during the night. He may have had help from another servant.
