Continuity mistake: Before Manolo's first bull fight begins, his father sheathes two swords on his back. However, those swords disappear when Manolo enters the ring where he fights the bull. Furthermore, when the time come for Manolo to kill the bull, his father provides him one sword.
Continuity mistake: After Manolo serenades Maria, when he falls from the balcony he loses his guitar and Maria catches it. Maria takes the guitar with her as he travels down the stairs to return it to him. After Joaquin proposes to Maria, the Rodríguez brothers barge in with a partly unconscious Manolo. When Manolo and Joaquin start arguing, Maria still has the guitar. However, after a soldier throws Joaquin his sword, one of the Rodríguez brothers suddenly has the guitar, and throws it to Manolo.
Question: When Manolo and Joaquin start fighting the wild boar, General Posada only sees Joaquin confronting the boar before he is knocked unconscious. Thus, he never sees Manolo fighting the boar like a matador. When the general recovers, he believes Joaquin defeated the boar and not Manolo. Despite the townsfolk being impressed by Manolo's action, why does no one, including the nun who thanks Manolo for saving her life, speak up and tell the general what actually happened? Why don't they confirm to the general that Manolo fought and defeated the boar?John Ohman
