Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When the ship is about to leave the Galapagos, Dr Maturin is on deck and has a growth of beard/moustache. He goes down to the cabin to remonstrate with Aubrey but appears there clean shaven. On deck again, slightly later, he has re-acquired his stubble.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): In the opening scene when Surprise is attacked by Acheron, Captain Aubrey gives to command to "run out the starboard battery". We then cut to the gun deck showing the guns not yet run out. However the ship has already been "cleared for action" and a previous shot shows the starboard guns run out ready to fire.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): The silverware used at the Captain's table and during the brain surgery scene is machine made and of a style that would not have been used till after the late 1830s when techniques for smithing changed. Spoons of that era would likely not be molded in one piece.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): In the closing scenes, as the dead are buried at sea, the crew is saying the Lord's Prayer. Given the year, they would be using the version known by all from The Book of Common Prayer (1662 edition): "Our Father, which art in heaven..." Instead they say, "Our Father, who art in heaven..." the first instance of which actually appeared in the American Book of Common Prayer (1892 Revision). As a ship of the King's Navy, the established Anglican Book of Common Prayer would be the normative source of liturgy and prayer.
