Best movie mistakes of 1941
Continuity mistake: When Lou is finally convinced that he won't get hurt being the umpire in the "Hit The Umpire" game, he runs to take his place then stops in front of the batter. As Lou runs to take his place he isn't wearing a baseball cap, nor is he holding one in his hands, but in the next shot, when he gets hit in the head by the batter, one has mysteriously appeared on his head.
Continuity mistake: Early in the film, when the gypsy Bela becomes a wolf that attacks Jenny and bites Talbot, he is in true four-legged animal form, sans clothing. After being killed, his human corpse is wearing clothes although it is remarked that his feet are bare. Later, when Talbot transforms, he is a Wolf-Man, wearing clothes and walking on two legs.
Other mistake: When the invitation to the Hunt Ball is shown on the screen, it says that the ball is on Thursday, March 7, but on the night of the ball when Lena gets the telegram from Johnnie, the date of the telegram is March 8, 1938, which would have been the next day. And March 8, 1938, was actually a Tuesday and March 7, 1938 (the day of the Thursday Ball), was actually a Monday.
Audio problem: Right at the beginning, a man is using a horse to plough a field, and behind him is a little girl, who finds an old doll that has been churned up by the plough. The little girl says,"Grandpa, look what I found." Grandpa and the horse stop working, but then he says, "Whoa, Nellie," to the horse, which has already been stopped for a while.
Visible crew/equipment: After the moving candle/ghost incident involving Ferdie and Camille, and before Moose Matson's money is discovered, Chuck and the doctor come running in, and they all start yelling and talking, there is a person (probably a crew member) briefly visible in the round window in the door in the background.
