The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

Factual error: As director Ronald Neame himself points out in his commentary to the DVD, immediately after Sandy has been heating a piece of bread in the fireplace, she grabs the end of the fork on which it is placed and does not burn herself. (00:19:00)

CC

Other mistake: The split second that a running student passes in front of her, Miss Mackay calls her name and restrains her, reacting much faster than humanly possible. (00:02:50)

CC

Continuity mistake: A party that is in full swing when Miss Brodie enters another room for her final confontation with Sandy has dispersed when she leaves only a few minutes later.

More mistakes in The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

Sandy: I'm not sure about God, but I am now quite sure about witches.

Jean Brodie: Little girls! I am in the business of putting old heads on young shoulders, and all my pupils are the creme de la creme. Give me a girl at an impressionable age and she is mine for life. You girls are my vocation. If I were to receive a proposal of marriage tomorrow from the Lord Lyon, King of Arms, I would decline it. I am dedicated to you in my prime. And my summer in Italy has convinced me that I am truly in my prime.

Gordon Lowther: I do not want to be your lover! I want to be your husband.
