The King and I

Factual error: When speaking to a member of the the Royal Family in Siam (modern day Thailand), one have to speak "rachasap" or Royal Thai. The movie depicts characters speaking colloquial Thai to the King.

Continuity mistake: When Anna meets the King's children for the first time, she is handed a pink rose which she tucks into her belt. When she visibly changes her mind about leaving and walks towards all the children with her hands out, the rose is gone. Next shot, it's tucked back into her belt again.
