Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie, when George Peppard is talking to Audrey Hepburn in the alley and it's raining heavily, his hair switches between being combed back and combed to the side. Very obvious - this takes place several times.
Continuity mistake: When Holly and Paul are at the library viewing Paul's book, Holly encourages Paul to autograph the library's copy of his book.

Revealing mistake: In the opening titles, when Holly looks in the store window, in the background a policeman can be seeing holding up traffic for the filming.
Continuity mistake: In the scene at the apartment, Holly is tossing lettuce in a bowl. Behind her is the stove top, where a pot is resting on an unlit hob, and a yellow bowl is to the right of this. In the next cut, we see a flame burning under what appears to be a different pot and the yellow bowl has moved closer to the said pot.
Visible crew/equipment: Just before Paul sits down on the box in front of Holly to show her the book commission that he had just earned, a microphone flashes into view on the right side of the screen.
