The Others

Other mistake: When Ann makes fun of the mute at the dinner table, the mute wears a plum-burgundy dress. Later on when Grace runs down to the gate and hears Ann crying, she's wearing the exact same dress. Seems unlikely the woman of the house would wear the same clothes as the scullery girl.

Other mistake: When Anne and Nicholas are trying to sleep and Victor keeps opening the curtains, Anne gets up to close them, and then you hear Victor run across the room and open them again. However the silhouette that is supposed to be Victor opening the curtains appears to be Anne's. You can plainly see her longer hair, and when we see Victor in the end, he has a very short haircut.

Factual error: When Grace goes into the children's bedroom to wake them up to introduce them to the new nanny and maid, she takes the only lamp they had with her into the bedroom but light is still reflecting off the nanny and maid as if a lamp was still there. (00:08:20)

Trivia: Eric Sykes, who played Mr. Tuttle is almost completely deaf and blind, and was 78 at the time the film was made. Although his part was not very demanding, it was played so well, you would never guess that he could neither see nor hear.

Question: What is with Mrs. Mills and the rest of the people who come to help with the housework? I know they are dead, but are they evil or good; and what are they trying to do?

Answer: Evil and good do not come into it at all. They are simply dead people. As Mrs. Mills says it, sometimes the world of the living gets mixed up with the world of the dead. They simply died in that house and can't leave just like Grace and her children.
