  • Goof (revealing mistake): Tessa falls off of her horse after hitting low branches from a tree and falls onto the ground. The shot is seen from the front and is outdoors. When Lon turns around to see what has happened to her (shot on a set) he runs just a few yards 10-12 to get to her. This is much too close as the initial view showed much more than 10-12 yards of open space in front of Tessa's horse. In addition, the area Tessa is lying on (on the set) is not as green as the initial outdoors shot.
