The Four Musketeers picture

Continuity mistake: During the battle at the convent, one of the Cardinal's guards takes aim with his matchlock musket, is shot by Portos, and falls - along with his gun - into a hay wagon. But if you watch the falling scene closely, it is evident that only the man ends up in the hay; the gun should have fallen some place to the left of the wagon.

The Island at the Top of the World picture

Visible crew/equipment: There's a scene where the airship Hyperion is flying low among the icebergs and the Captain is bragging about his piloting prowess. In one shot the ship emerges from behind a pillar of ice, and the shadow of a large piece of overhead rigging falls over the top of the miniature berg.

Swallows and Amazons picture

Factual error: The film is set in the 1920's. When the policeman appears towards the end of the film on his helmet is a post-1952 helmet plate with the crown of Queen Elizabeth II.
