Little Women

Continuity mistake: When Jo returns home from New York after she learns Beth is sick, she enters the room and Marmee stands up to hug her. When they hug, Marmee's arms are between them. In the next shot, they're around Jo then they switch back to being between them.

Continuity mistake: When Laurie sees Amy painting in Europe, in his closeup he takes the cigarette out of his mouth and throws it on the ground. But in the next shot, with Amy in the foreground, as Laurie is walking towards her in the background, notice how he, once again, removes the cigarette from his mouth and throws it on the ground.
