Revealing mistake: When the ferret grabs the arrow with its teeth and runs away, the shot changes and it's very obvious that the arrow has been attached to some sort of collar around the animal's neck.

Continuity mistake: A thick cloud of steam suddenly appears on the lake between frames while Kiri is bathing. It makes everything more magical, but it's definitely awkward.

Continuity mistake: Kiri steps out of the water when the ferrets steal her clothes. She tries to cover herself with a small piece of garment around her waist. A frame later she is wearing a full dress.

Revealing mistake: Every time Dar's village is from the hill, it is a blatant scale model or Mayte painting where all the people and animals are suddenly missing.

Continuity mistake: When Dar and the others use a boat to intercept Kiri and her captors, we see them sailing towards the pier, but in the close-up shot they're pulling themselves along a rope which was absent from the earlier shot. (Noted in director's commentary.)

More quotes from The Beastmaster

Trivia: Over the decades, one persistent Internet rumor maintains that the tiger used in the first Beastmaster film died a horrible, lingering, 2-year death from skin cancer as a result of having his entire coat dyed black with toxic chemicals. As usual for Internet gossip, the details of this story are dreadfully confused, at best. According to director Don Coscarelli (speaking during an interview with author Staci Layne Wilson for her 2007 book "Animal Movies Guide," page 350), the film's executive producer brought in an animal handler who chose to dye more than one tiger black. Just to be clear, none of the tigers became diseased or expired from the non-toxic black vegetable dye. It was necessary, however, to anesthetize the tigers before applying the dye to their coats; and, unfortunately, one of the tigers simply never woke up from the anesthesia (a known problem with cats). Coscarelli felt horrible about the unexpected death; but, in fairness to him, the decision to anesthetize and dye the tigers was not his choice.

Question: Why did the huge bat-like creatures kill the man that was in their cage but let Dar live?

Answer: The creatures did not eat Dar because the eagle landed on him, showing him as a friend to the eagle. They apparently worship eagles, as also indicated by the talisman they give him.
