Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): In every scene where knight's collide on the lyst, you see their lances in one hand and the reins to their horse in the other. When knight's jousted, they would drop their reins before impact so that a severe impact would not cause them to jerk the reins or become entangled in them causing more damage to themselves or the horse.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): While Adhemar is being prepared for the final joust, his page puts on his helmet and begins to close the visor with his ungloved hand. In the next shot, Adhemar closes the visor again with his own, gloved, right hand which, as far as we have seen, is already holding his lance (he is holding the horse's reins with his left hand).
  • For the scene when William follows Jocelyn into the cathedral, the sounds of his horse's hooves were produced using coconuts on Charles Maynes' garage floor.
  • The terrific crunching sound heard whenever a lance shatters in the film is largely made up of the sound of a howitzer being fired. In order to produce the long crunching impact, the sound of the howitzer was slowed down by half.
