Cast Away - How Did He Do That?
Chuck Noland(Tom Hanks) has been marooned on the island for maybe a few days when he discovers the body of one of the airplane crew. He removes the crew member's (Albert) shoes only to discover that they are too small to fit. Chuck goes about the business of burying Al, and later you see Chuck wearing the newly acquired shoes with the toes cut out to allow his big feet to fit. Question is, since he has nothing other than rocks to cut things with, how did he cut the toes out of the leather shoes so cleanly? The cuts look really straight and clean. He left his army knife on his key chain with the girlfriend back home, and he doesn't find the ice skates until later. HMMMM????

He could have picked the stitches out and removed the toe part, or if there was any flint on the island you can break it into pretty sharp pieces with another rock. (I don't really know if a tropical island would be likely to have flint or not.)

Actually, I don't think this is really a slip-up; maybe a minor one, but not a huge one at all. Remember, this is a movie, and they have people who make the props and pick the clothing. Whoever was making the shoes probably didn't actually cut it with a rock. The editors probably didn't think that many people would be so picky about a "clean cut". Now, let's think of the possibilities of how he could have done it on the island. First of all, some rocks/shells have very pointed sharp edges. And since shoes are usually just glued or stitched together (in some cases of cheap shoes very poorly), they could have been easily cut nicely with a sharp rock/shell. I can't believe that I am wasting time to even explain the background of how some shoes got so nicely cut. But nice eye, though.
