King Solomon's Mines

Revealing mistake: Having been deserted by their porters three white people and a native journey on. During their journey an antelope is shot by Allan Quartermain for food. The sound of the shot is dubbed in as there is no recoil from the high powered rifle he uses.

Continuity mistake: When Deborah Kerr is climbing a tree her boots are clearly shown as dirty and scuffed. Shortly afterward she is seen wearing a pair of shiny new looking boots. She would hardly be carrying a spare pair whilst trekking through the jungle.

Continuity mistake: When Allen Quatermain and his friends find the white man in the village, he says he hasn't seen a white man for five years. When Allen asks him about Elizabeth Curtis' husband, he says that he saw him one year ago. Note: The husband is a white man.

Allan Quatermain: ...in the end you begin to accept it all... you watch things hunting and being hunted, reproducing, killing and dying, it's all endless and pointless, except in the end one small pattern emerges from it all, the only certainty: one is born, one lives for a time then one dies, that is all.
