The Wolfman

Factual error: When Talbot is first in Gwen Conliffe's shop in London, there is a vase of flowers containing Stargazer lilies. The Stargazer lily wasn't created until 1978 by Leslie Woodriff.

Factual error: Sir John claims to have removed the gunpowder from the silver bullet four bore cartridges. However, he had not removed the primers, thus there would not have been a mere click from the falling hammers but a most definite bang from the primers. Furthermore, in some calibers the pressure from the primers may actually be enough to propel the bullets even without gunpowder.

Factual error: The film is set in 1891 and shows London's Tower Bridge in operation. The bridge wasn't opened until 1894.

Other mistake: When Lawrence is looking at his wound in the mirror, it has slightly healed. Later, when Sir John visits Lawrence in the asylum, he shows the bite mark he got from the feral child to Lawrence. Since Sir John is also a werewolf, the bite mark should not be there.
