Best movie mistakes of 1944
Continuity mistake: When Velvet and her mother are sitting and talking in the attic, her mother pours some gold coins into Velvet's lap. Velvet is sitting back on her feet, but a few seconds later, she raises up on her knees to hug her mother. The coins should go spilling everywhere, but we never see or hear them.
Factual error: There's a scene when Barbara Stanwyck hides behind an open door to avoid beeing seen by Edward G.Robinson leaving Fred MacMurray`s apartment. To make this possible the apartment door opens outside into the corridor, which is an elegant solution for this situation in the movie. But in the real world no apartment door would open by swinging into the corridor because this would give a visitor standing there a punch on the nose when the resident opens the door.
Plot hole: Vic Gordon finds the Black Whip's clothes and puts them on. Then he goes to rescue Barbara Meredith (the real Black Whip). Strangely, her outfit fits him perfectly. In other scenes, he is taller and more muscular than she is. Did she keep several sets of clothes in various sizes, including boots?
Continuity mistake: In the scene where we see school children leaving the building and are going home we see two children go over to the see saw to ride on it. Buffalo Bill is talking to a little girl just outside the doorway and when it cuts in for a closer shot of the girl, you can see in the background there are now four children on the see saw; then again when the little girl starts walking home its back to the original two children who were on the see saw earlier on.
