Excalibur (1981)

Audio problem: King Arthur addresses the Knights of the Round Table and says, "We must find what was lost, the Grail". If you look closely at his lips he's saying something else, not "the Grail". (01:35:20)

Continuity mistake: Mordred brings Perceval to his mother Morgana and we see the metal pendants hanging from her crown are almost motionless. In the next close-up shot of her holding Mordred the pendants are all moving. (01:40:50)

Continuity mistake: After killing Uryens, Mordred rides up on his horse and looks over in the direction of Perceval, who's hiding behind a tree. At first his right arm is bent close to his chest, then in the next shot his arm is at his side. (01:48:50)

Excalibur (1981)

Continuity mistake: When Arthur thrusts Excalibur through Mordred there's a dead white horse behind them. When we first see it, the head is facing away from them but later as Mordred falls dead the horse is reversed with the head closer to them. (02:13:00)

Continuity mistake: After the final battle Mordred thrusts a spear through his father Arthur's chest. It goes totally through him but if only the very tip has blood on it. Later on in the scene it's entirely bloody. (02:12:40)

The Graduate (1967)

Excalibur (1981)

Deliberate mistake: Arthur has just pulled Excalibur out of the stone and he goes running through the woods chasing after Merlin. When he finds him there's a close-up of Merlin and you can see the crew in his shiny silver helmet. (00:31:40)

Excalibur (1981)

Visible crew/equipment: Lancelot's armor is so bright and shiny as he fights with King Arthur that it's impossible not to see the cast and crew's reflection shining in it. (00:49:50)

Excalibur (1981)

Continuity mistake: Uther wants Merlin to get Igrayne for him to sleep with and they both climb to the top of a hill so that Merlin can cast a spell on her. Merlin says, "Annal Nathrach" with his scepter held high in the air but in the next shot the scepter is at eye level. (00:10:00)

Excalibur (1981)

Visible crew/equipment: Merlin gives a speech to the men saying, "I was there that night, with Arthur, the king". His staff has a flame coming out of the top and if you look closely as he walks around you can see a tube feeding gas into it from the bottom. (00:56:20)

5th Jan 2007

Excalibur (1981)

Continuity mistake: When we first see Lancelot in a close-up sitting on his horse next to his tent there are no jousting sticks anywhere to be seen. Later when King Arthur comes across the bridge we see the tent again and there are many jousting sticks around it and near the flag. (00:46:35 - 00:48:00)

Excalibur (1981)

Continuity mistake: At the siege of Leondegrance's castle, Arthur gives Uryens Excalibur and asks him to knight him with it. Arthur has been out of the water for a few minutes but as he is being knighted his hair is dripping wet again and a large area of blood appears on his neck. (00:41:10)

Excalibur (1981)

Continuity mistake: Several knights joust and the winner has the right to try to pull Excalibur out of the stone. The winner tries but cannot do it and sets the sword rocking back and forth in the stone. The shot lasts until Excalibur stops moving, then in the next shot it's wobbling back and fourth again. (00:26:00)

5th Jan 2007

Excalibur (1981)

Continuity mistake: As Morgana and Merlin speak, the position of the vial that she's wearing changes between shots. In the shots where we see Merlin's face a gold spec (many are included as decorations in the veil) is next to her cheek. In the shots where we see Morgana's face the gold spec moves and is next to her right temple. (01:01:45)
