The Ghost and Mrs. Muir

Continuity mistake: To show time has passed, the wooden fence on the beach deteriorates, but the top of the fence, with Anna Muir carved in it, was never anywhere near the water - it was way up inland, far away from the water's edge - but now it is in the water, waves washing over it.

Other mistake: When Anna and her fiancee arrive for tea, the fiancee is put in the living room while Anna and Lucy, in the kitchen, talk about the ghost; as they leave the kitchen, Anna heads right, which is wrong - the living room is to the left.

Continuity mistake: After a day at the beach, Lucy has a long walk ahead of her via a very long dirt road. When Lucy starts the walk, there is a man/woman riding a horse-drawn wagon; but, after a brief chat with Daniel, when she starts walking again, the wagon is gone, and there are no visible side dirt roads.

Continuity mistake: At the end, Lucy is sitting in the big chair in her bedroom, and Martha leaves, pulling the door closed with her. In the next shot, the door is wide open. In addition when Lucy dies, her head is turned to her right, but as she leaves as a ghost, she looks back at herself, and her head is now turned to the left.

Character mistake: After a year in Gull Cottage, Lucy and Martha walk up the stairs together. Lucy says she had a dream a year ago and Martha says she remembers her telling her about it, but because it was about the ghost, she didn't tell her a word. So Martha didn't hear a word.

Continuity mistake: When Lucy is looking over Gull Cottage, for the first time, she opens the left window next to the telescope, but once outside, it's the right window that is left open.
