Legends of the Fall

Audio problem: When Tristan returns the second time he is driving horses along, shouting loudly, but without moving his mouth. (01:19:35)

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When Susannah comes to the ranch she takes a photograph of the three brothers. Alfred is holding a glass and has both legs up. At the end of the movie Tristan looks at the picture, and Alfred's glass is missing, and one leg is stretched out. (01:54:00)

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When the second German cavalryman attacks Tristan he is aiming his rifle at him. When he gets shot down he is holding on to the reins, and the rifle is gone. (00:39:40)

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When Tristan and Samuel talk about premarital sex, some strands on Tristan's right temple hang down or are tucked behind his ear alternatingly. (00:20:30)

NancyFelix

Revealing mistake: When Tristan takes revenge for his brother and scalps two German soldiers you can see that his knife just goes through the hair. (00:44:25)

NancyFelix

Continuity mistake: When Tristan and Samuel hug in the trenches in the war, at first Tristan's chin is on top of Samuel's hat, but when it cuts to the other angle, their heads are level, side by side. (00:36:00)

Continuity mistake: In the scene of Alfred and Tristan at Susanna's grave, when shots of Alfred show him speaking to Tristan, he looks to his right, as if the two men were side by side and facing the grave, and they seem to have been side by side in the last shot in that scene, when they leave the grave-site. However, the sun lights the left side of Alfred's face, and in the alternating shots, which show Tristan listening to Alfred, the sunlight is on the right side of Tristan's face.

Susannah: Tristan, I have nowhere to send this letter and no reason to believe you wish to receive it. I write it only for myself. And so I will hide it away along with all the things left unsaid and undone between us.

Trivia: The title refers to the fall from innocence. However the Swedish title, "Höstlegender", refers to the season (Legends of the Fall/Autumn).

Question: Who is One Stab telling the story to? I thought maybe it was a relative of Tristan (son/daughter or grandson/granddaughter) because he hands the person the family letter which makes me think it WAS a family member, but who is it?

Answer: There's nothing to tell us who the listener is. Your theory that it's probably a family member seems entirely reasonable, but there's nothing in the film that would allow the identity of the listener to be narrowed down any further than that.
