Brighty of the Grand Canyon

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, right after the opening credits, Old Timer picks up a gold rock. When he first picks it up, we see a close up shot of his hand holding it only an inch or so above the ground. The very next shot a second later, from the side, shows his hand holding the gold instantly a foot or so above where it was before.

Revealing mistake: When Old Timer strikes it rich and digs his gold mine, the rock he is digging and mining is obviously not gold, just ordinary rock.

Continuity mistake: Toward the beginning of the film, when Uncle Jim starts pouring a drink for Old Timer, he is holding the jug handle with his right hand. But in the very next shot, only a second later, he is now holding the handle of the jug with his left hand.

Narrator: This old world has seen a lot of changes since Teddy Roosevelt's day, but his dream came true, and the Grand Canyon will stay the same, as long as there is a world. Brighty has long since left this earth, but some animals, like some men, leave a trail of glory behind them. They give their spirit to the place where they had lived, a part of the rocks and steams and the wind and the sky. Brighty's spirit lives on, forever wild, forever free.
