Goofs

Anachronisms 

The film is set in 1945 but a period-correct Bentley seen at the very end of the film has modern reflective number plates. These would not be seen on British or Channel Island cars before 1968.

Continuity 

While Grace is searching for the missing curtains, Anne and Nicholas argue while Anne draws. Her drawing goes back and forth, being less complete when the camera is beside her, and more complete when it is beside Nicholas.

Grace is teaching the children and tells them that they must study separately from their readers. Anne leaves to go into the music room and the door is locked but the camera stays with Nicholas in his room. He begins to read from his reader and the camera dollies around behind Nicholas and on the table you can see Anne's reader. In the next shot, Anne is in the music room with her reader.

While walking in the fog, Grace's hands are very red from the cold when she puts them on her husband's neck. In the next shot they are much whiter, then back to red again.

Crew or equipment visible 

Grace says the house does not have electricity. However, when Anne is standing and reciting to her mother as punishment, the table to the left of Anne has a statue of a horse on it which is clearly backlit by the white light of an electric bulb. In the following shots as Anne and Grace argue about Anne's forgiveness, the light is gone.

Errors in geography 

Near the end of the movie when Anna and Nicholas are walking away from the house they are moving away from it and this is clarified by Anna's line "We're not at the end of the garden yet" but when they stand before the grave stones a few shots afterwards, the house is behind the graves. We know for earlier on when Grace has been talking to the gardener that the graves are near the end of the garden.

Factual errors 

In the end titles, a misspelled line gives credit for "metereology".

Revealing mistakes 

Lighting and electricity. Grace said she doesn't have electricity over there but during night sequences, the rooms are too brightly lit for gas or kerosene lamps.
