The Kid picture

Continuity mistake: After the Tramp has found the Kid as a baby, he sits down by a drain and contemplates dropping the baby in. He puts his cane alongside him, so that it is at right-angles to the pavement (pointing towards the camera). The shot changes, and suddenly it is now parallel with the pavement.

I Do picture

Revealing mistake: Harold Lloyd is trying to cross a busy intersection. Apparently the scene was double-exposed. As one car passes by, it appears translucent and the streetcar tracks can be seen through it.
