Goofs Pay close attention to Don Camillo's hand with the glass of castor oil in the "Castor Oil" scene. He pours what is clearly a viscous, oily liquid into the glass. Before drinking however, his hand drops out of view and when he puts the glass to his mouth the liquid is all of a sudden clear water. Apparently drinking the castor oil for real was one step too far. See more »
