Continuity mistake: Before Pollyanna arrives on the train, when Jimmy Bean pushes the metal hoop down the road, two girls stop their doll carriages right beside each other and grab their dolls, but in the next shot their carriages are about 4 feet apart, which is now wide enough for Jimmy to run between.

Continuity mistake: Just after Pollyanna and Jimmy are given the watermelon slices, there is an overhead panning shot of the bazaar grounds and Mrs. Lagerlof is seen at her cake stand, but in the next shot (and two shots later) Mrs. Lagerlof and Mr. Tarbell can be seen dancing together at the bandstand at the other end of the bazaar (then a few shots later she's back at her cake stand).

Question: What's the name of the Music or Song playing at the beginning of the "Bazaar" when everyone is riding bicycles down the road?

Answer: Is that when they were playing, "Listen to the spinning wheel?"

I meant to say the song, "Listen To The Mockingbird Bird." (But I'm not sure that's exactly where they played it, but the band did play that one. It's a very old song, around Civil War times.
