The Ghost and Mrs. Muir

Character mistake: After a year in Gull Cottage, Lucy and Martha walk up the stairs together. Lucy says she had a dream a year ago and Martha says she remembers her telling her about it, but because it was about the ghost, she didn't tell her a word. So Martha didn't hear a word.

Continuity mistake: To show time has passed, the wooden fence on the beach deteriorates, but the top of the fence, with Anna Muir carved in it, was never anywhere near the water - it was way up inland, far away from the water's edge - but now it is in the water, waves washing over it.

Captain Gregg: If you think that's ugly, it's a good thing you can't read me thoughts.

Question: Did they have signs for smoking cars on the train windows in that era?

Answer: Yes they did. In 1868 the Railway Regulation Bill was passed in the UK which forced railway companies to designate certain cars as smoking cars. This bill was passed in response to companies banning smoking altogether on their trains.
