Out of Africa

Continuity mistake: When Denys and Karen go to bed together, she takes his tie off. The scene is cut and then his tie is on again.

Continuity mistake: When Denys Finch-Hatton takes Karen Blixen on a flight in his open bi-plane, he hands her a pair of goggles just before they board the plane. As they sit in the plane she is goggle-less and he hands her another pair.

Continuity mistake: When Karen and her people are on the way to her husband's camp they get attacked by lions. When she helps chasing them away she gets some deep, bloody scratches in her face, of which there isn't even a trace on the next day. (00:52:40)

Karen Blixen: Perhaps he knew, as I did not, that the Earth was made round so that we would not see too far down the road.

Denys: I like animals. Nothing they do is half-hearted. Everything they do is for the first time: they hunt, they eat, they mate.

Karen Blixen: He even took the gramophone on safari. Three rifles, supplies for a month, and Mozart.
