A Knight's Tale

Continuity mistake: When Heath Ledger is chatting to the little girl who tells him that his father is still alive, it is pouring down with rain and Heath brushes his hair back. It then keeps moving around. Sometimes it is brushed back and others it is hanging forwards or all tousled. (01:38:25)

Chaucer: Good people, I missed my introduction. But please... Please I pray you, hear it now, for I would lay rest the grace in my tongue and speak plainly.

Here he is, one of your own, born a stone's throw from this very stadium, and here before you now, the son of John Thatcher... Sir Wiiiiiilliam Thatcheeer.
