Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (crew or equipment visible): During a shot of the Himalayan mountains, stagehands can be seen standing and walking about behind the scrim on which the mountains are painted.
  • The backdrops were blown-up black and white photographs. The art department then gave them their breathtaking colors by using pastel chalks on top of them.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): (At 1:36:00) Sister Ruth picks up Mr. Dean's pipe, which is 'smoking', from an ashtray. She walks away, still holding the pipe, and the ashtray continues to emitting trails of smoke.
  • Because of the Technicolor camera and film stock, the sets needed an astounding 800 foot-candles (8,600 lux) of illuminance just to operate at T2.8, which was the widest lens aperture setting.
