Black Narcissus

Continuity mistake: In the scene towards the very end of the film when Sister Ruth goes to see Mr. Dean, she is wearing a great deal of lipstick - in fact, her make-up is indicative of her having left the religious order run by Sister Clodagh. She becomes hysterical and faints. When she wakes up she's no longer wearing any lipstick (no indeed any make-up at all).

Sister Ruth: Sister, the schoolroom is overflowing with children. We've nothing unpacked yet. No one understands the language. There are too many of them anyway, and they all smell.

Mother Dorothea: Remember, the superior of all is the servant of all.

Sister Clodagh: Well I really don't know what to do.
Mr. Dean: What would Christ have done?
