Continuity mistake: When Platt is putting clapboards on the frame, after Tibeats tells him to make them flush he has one nail in the center of a plank when he sees Patsey being pulled out of another building. He takes his hand off the plank and watches. The plank is at three different angles depending on the shot, although Platt is standing several feet away and has not touched it again.

Quotes

Bass: The law says you have the right to hold a nigger, but begging the law's pardon... It lies. Is everything right because the law allows it? Suppose they'd pass a law taking away your liberty and making you a slave?
Edwin Epps: Ha!
Bass: Suppose!
Edwin Epps: That ain't a supposable case.
Bass: Because the law states that your liberties are undeniable? Because society deems it so? Laws change. Social systems crumble. Universal truths are constant. It is a fact, it is a plain fact that what is true and right is true and right for all. White and black alike.
