The Robe

Continuity mistake: Jesus's garment appears to shrink during this movie. It covers him at one stage, but ends up small enough to drape over Richard Burton's shoulders.

Factual error: In the scene where Marcellus is being shipped off to "Palestine" on the galley - presumably from Ostia the port of Rome at the mouth of the Tiber - he is urged to hurry up his farewell to Diana by the galley captain because "we will miss the tide." This is the Mediterranean - there is no tide to speak of.

Diana: Then all the tales I've heard of you are true.
Marcellus Gallio: Every man makes enemies.
Diana: All your enemies seem to be women.

Demetrius: You're afraid, but you really don't know the reason why. You think it's his robe that made you ill. But it's your own conscience, your own decent shame. Even when you crucified him you felt it.

Pontius Pilate: Give me water to wash my hands.
