The Godfather: Part III

Revealing mistake: When the new Pope is announced, the New York Times headline is shown, and 'Copyright 1990 The New York Times' is visible. The event took place in 1979.

Revealing mistake: Several newspaper spins show Michael Corleone in the headline, but a screen shot reveals body copy that is unrelated or outdated. For example, the headline dated 1979 has copy referring to events occurring in the 1990's. Another has body copy with instructions from a software manual.

Continuity mistake: When Mary comes to Vincent's club and they talk while he is cooking gnocchi, the salt container and the pans on the shelf keep changing positions. (01:11:50)

Question: At the meeting in Atlantic City, what's with the dons passing around and taking from the platter of jewelry?

Answer: It shows you how greedy they are even as they've made it to the zenith of their criminal careers. That's why you see Michael pass it on disgustedly and stare blankly into the ether. Michael's goal was never to be the boss or capo di tutti capi, he only did it to protect his father and then his family, his main goal. And at that moment he realises he's never getting out. He's a business man in a world of criminals (which he is himself).
