While Roy is examining the stack of peat that mysteriously appeared behind Mrs. MacIntyre's cottage, he crouches down for a closer look at a triangular mark, picks up a horseshoe from the turf, and turns to look questioningly back up at Mrs. MacIntyre (26:50 to 26:52). Film editor Melody George
mentions in the student commentary that there wasn't film of Roy turning back to look down (26:58 to 27:01) to segue to the next film segment, so they ran some of the previous segment backwards. See more
