O Brother, Where Art Thou?

Revealing mistake: In the scene where the three escapees are jumping into the train, when George Clooney jumps up you can see that the chain linking him to Delmar gets longer. (00:05:10)

Continuity mistake: When they first meet George Nelson, the left back seat window is half way open. A few seconds after they get into his car, Delmar gives the machine gun to Nelson through the left back seat's completely open window (the camera shows the guys all the time so we can see that Delmar didn't lower the window when he got in the car). (00:32:25 - 00:33:40)

Trivia: When Everett asks the hobos on the train if any of them are "smithys", look closely and you'll see that they're sitting on big bags of Pappy O'Daniel flour. Pappy is a major character later in the film.

Question: Is there a scene in the movie where we see Everett find the gold watch in the drawer while he is looking for a hairnet? It's not on the dvd and I am sure I have seen it. My family says they have never seen it so it's driving me crazy.

Answer: I too recall that scene.
