Revealing mistake: When Celie is having her baby, and her sister brings the kettle of boiling water into the house, as she gets ready to pour the boiling water, she places her left hand on the "boiling" kettle. If it were really boiling water, she would have burned her hand in a second.michaelwbaldwin
Continuity mistake: When he first brings Celie home to his family, Mister'shouse is a two-story plantation-style house with grand pillars, a front porch that does not span the whole width of the house and and an upper porch. Then, suddenly, his house is a farm-style house with a full-width front porch, and a full garden in front (the one with the mailbox across the dirt road from the house) and it's completely different from the first house.
