Corrected entry: Karen and Denys fly to a beautiful sand beach on the Mombasa coast. After a beautiful sunset they camp on a bonfire in the darkness. In Mombasa the coast is in the east, toward the sunrise.

Correction: There is no "sunset" to be seen before the campfire on the beach. There only is a shot of dusk coming over a clouded sky while Blixen and Finch Hatton swim in the sea. It is impossible to say if the light is stronger inlands or not.

Corrected entry: At the New Years Eve party Denys grabs Karen's hand and pulls her to the dance floor. In her other hand is a glass of champagne which spills out of the glass. On the dance floor Karen puts a full champagne glass to her mouth and takes a sip.

Correction: The glass is not full when she takes a sip while they are on the dance floor. There is less than half a glass of champagne, enough to allow for the bit that sloshed out.

Corrected entry: In a scene in the house, which appears to be a split level, with steps going both to the right and left to reach the lower level; there is what is unmistakably a round Honeywell thermostat on the wall. Kenya is relatively temperate in climate with highs in the warmest regions in the mid 80's. Climate control would not be a big problem. Clearly, at the turn of the century in Keyna, Honeywell thermostats were, if anything, only a concept in someone's mind.

Correction: First, this story occurs over a 17-year period in Isak Dineson's life - from 1919 through 1936, so not "turn of the century". Secondly, the thermostat shown is indeed an early model and Honeywell thermostats were first used in 1924.

Corrected entry: During an early scene Karen is shooting pheasant with a shotgun. There is a shot of her with the shotgun to her shoulder firing a shot which produces no recoil. The shotgun, most probably a 12 gauge has substantial recoil which would be readily noticeable.

Correction: Done properly, handling the recoil from a shotgun is minimized to prevent injury and discomfort. Karen was an accomplished hunter and knew how to handle guns. And she does show a bit of recoil in this scene.

Corrected entry: When Denys and Karen get ready to make love there's a reflection of a crew member in blue shorts in a mirror behind them.

Correction: The reflection is of Denys' pants and his tall boots. You can see Karen's white skirt right next to it.
