The Caine Mutiny

Continuity mistake: In the scene at Yosemite where Keith is waiting for May to have breakfast there is a big silver pot on the table. After May arrives the pot isn't there anymore. (00:43:45)


Continuity mistake: When Queeg orders a safety drill on the ship there are two seamen without a helmet. One helmet is being handed through to them, but in the next shot both men are wearing helmets. That Queeg, who should have seen both, wants to punish only one makes this slip complete. (01:01:25)


Continuity mistake: When Capt. Queeg has his first meeting with his officers a message comes in. When Queeg asks the messenger for his name and rank his right arm is on or under the table in alternating shots. (00:30:10)


Continuity mistake: Following being dragged in the ocean attempting to secure a tow-line, Van Johnson immediately appears on deck, soaking wet, naturally, except for the back of his left shirt sleeve, which is amazingly dry.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Caine is in a storm there is no number '18' on the side of the bow. In other shots of the real Caine there is a very distinctive No. 18 painted in white on both sides of the bow. (01:16:05 - 01:20:20)


Continuity mistake: The court martial ends with Willie still an Ensign, but when he reports aboard Commander De Vriess' destroyer, his next assignment, he is a full Lieutenant (two full stripes).
