Corrected entry: When Septimus finds Primus dead in the bath, the inn has vanished and the bath is in an open field. As the bath was part of the inn magically generated from Lamia's small chariot, it should have disappeared too. Primus should have been found lying on the ground. (00:57:35)
Corrected entry: In scenes, where Tristan is a mouse, it's actually not a mouse, but a dormouse. Both these are rodents, but from a different family. A dormouse looks a lot like a mouse, but it has a furred tail (I'm not sure about the exact species used in the movie).
Corrected entry: No explanation is given as to how Tristan, wearing only his long johns, got from the brig (located in the bow of the ship) to Capt. Shakespear's cabin (located at stern of the ship) without the crew noticing.
Corrected entry: In the scene in the magic inn when Lamia traps Tristan and Yvain with green "witch's fire," Tristan sticks his hand holding the Babylon candle into the fire. Tristan screams and the Babylon candle is lit. Tristan shouldn't have felt any pain and the Babylon candle shouldn't have been lit because he was wearing the snow drop flower, which deflects witch's fire, at the time. In a later scene when Lamia confronts Tristan, she tries to use witch's fire against him but the snow drop flower deflects it.
Corrected entry: When Septimus finds Tristan outside the Witches' lair and asks him what he is doing there, Tristan replies: "I might ask you the same thing". When he finishes speaking, he closes his mouth, but when the camera moves down to his knife, his mouth is slightly open. This happens instantly (01:41:00)Jennifer 1
Corrected entry: The runes used by the soothsayers are supposed to have only one carved side. The carved side means that the answer to the question is "yes" while the plain side means "no". Because the chance of getting all four pieces of runes to show only carved or plain side at the same time is hard to achieve, the runes used when the expected answer is "yes" are actually carved on both sides while the plain runes are used when the answer is "no." That way, a minor scene could be completed without wasting time and movie reels. (00:40:45 - 00:41:35)
Corrected entry: When Lamia is doing little magic, like turning Bernard into a goat, she gets older little by little. But when she uses a lot of magic (making an inn out of a chariot, for example), she doesn't change an iota.
