The Night of the Hunter

Audio problem: When Willa Harper is lying in bed talking to Harry her mouth movements are out of sync with the dialogue.

Continuity mistake: On the honeymoon night, when Willa approaches to the bed, Harry stands up and lights the lamp above in front of him. Between shots the lamp changes position.

Factual error: After Harry Powell disappears from in front of Ms. Cooper's yard, a barn owl swoops down on a rabbit. We can hear the owl's wings flap even though barn owls make no noise when they fly.
