While their father is away during the Civil War, the March sisters, along with their mother, Marmee, try to maintain a normal life throughout their hardships. As they grow older, each sister strives to realize their own unique ambitions and potential. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for in 1949's "Little Women".

· Marmee goes upstairs to check on the girls. When she picks up the oil lamp, she can be seen holding the lamp´s electric cord with her left hand as she turns to walk toward Meg´s door.

· Jo is having tea with Laurie. Laurie asks, How many lumps? and Jo replies, One, please. He puts one sugar cube in her cup. Jo then says, three. In the side view, Laurie puts another cube in. It cuts to a farther view and he puts two more sugar cubes in the cup--totaling four.

· Jo and Laurie are talking while having tea. As Laurie sits down, Jo is explaining that Meg made it, she´s the oldest. In the wider view, Jo is shown holding her teacup to her mouth with her left hand. It cuts to a closer view and she has the cup on the saucer in front of her. A few moments later, in the right side view of Jo when she comments, It´s ridiculous, the teacup is still on the saucer. But, she´s holding it cup in her left hand in the front view when she repeats, Ridiculous.

· Jo returns home and gives Beth a music box. In the closer view, as Beth explains she doesn´t play much anymore, she turns the music box on and opens the lid. It cuts to a wider view of Beth, Jo and Marmee as Jo stands and Beth´s shown opening the lid on the music box again.
