The 13th Warrior

Visible crew/equipment: In a scene in a cave that is the lair of the "eaters of the dead," the camera takes an overhead wide angle shot of the "eaters" walking down into the cave. It is possible to see a young man wearing a burgundy t-shirt and beige shorts (a crew member), sitting against the wall of the cave cross-legged.

Suggested correction: I've watched this scene a number of times on YouTube and I'm certain that this "crew member" is an extra. He is not wearing a T-shirt and shorts, his clothing is correct for an extra. There is also another extra sat cross-legged a few feet from him.

Visible crew/equipment: As the Wendel leader approaches the village for the final battle, there is a closeup shot of him, on horseback, arm with weapon upraised. Look closely at his chest/underarm, and there is a plastic buckle (like a back-pack snap-in) visible holding the bearskin/costume. (01:21:15)

Trivia: The story of this film is basically a retelling of the story of Beowulf and Grendel. Buliwyf is Beowulf, the Wendol are Grendel, King Hrothgar is of course himself. Ahmed Ibn Fahalan was added to lend the story historical credence as Ahmen Ibn Fahalan really did travel north from Baghdad and encountered Viking men.
