The Man from Snowy River

Visible crew/equipment: When the wild horses, known as the brumbies, come rushing past the ranch, a cowboy can be seen to the far left of the frame herding them into the channel between a tree in front of the home's front fence and the fence itself. It's an awesome, but complex shot, and the rider was meant to be out of frame, but the technical realities of a shot like that have him just inside the frame's edge.

Mistakes

When Jessica has gone over the cliff in the dark we can see that she is wet, dirty and her hair is plastered to her head and is under her collar. The shot changes to show how precarious her place is on the side of the cliff. However, in this shot, the stuntperson's hair is quite dry and over the collar. Also noticeable is the change in shape of the rock. When she falls at night, she falls onto a very flat and rock - in the morning, it is a different shape entirely.

Trivia

After all the men have gone off in search of the horse, Spur is left behind at Harrison's homestead to flirt with Mrs. Bailey. He playfully chases her around the kitchen table and in so doing passes a platter of chicken. Without pausing, Spur sweeps down, grabs a chunk and takes a ravenous bite, then continues his lap around the table. As he approaches the camera on the near side, he starts to speak and a small chunk of chicken is shot from his mouth directly in to his up swinging hand. He then places his hand on the table to deposit the chunk of chicken.
