Cast Away - Shovel in Background
When Tom Hanks buries the pilots on the island they show a closeup of Tom Hanks. On the right side of the screen you can see a shovel in the background. I wonder where that came from?!

The scene where Tom Hanks is burying the pilot does not show a shovel in the background. I am watching the movie as I type and notice that it is an oar that is sticking out of the sand.

I think the shovel isn't really a shovel. if you think about it, the *shovel* could have most likely have been the oar from his raft, but you never know, they could have really messed up

It is a oar. Look at the jagged end. The only mistake I see, that it would be impossible, to scoop sand into a neat pile with a oar. You would have to scatter it around the hole. You can tell by the shape of the end, in the sand, that it is a broken oar.
