Our Vines Have Tender Grapes picture

Revealing mistake: In the process shot (dummy auto front seat, scenery visible in back window) where father and daughter are driving off to see the circus, Eddie G. makes a left turn and the scenery follows; but he forgets to return the steering wheel to center, even though the scenery shows the car has straightened out on the new course. Funny - even titans nod. That car should still be circling somewhere.

I Know Where I'm Going! picture

Factual error: This is not an error in the film itself, but in some supplementary material on the DVD, in which Margot FitzSimons, the actress who plays Bridie, is identified as the sister of Maureen O'Sullivan. She is in fact the sister of Maureen O'Hara.

And Then There Were None picture

Other mistake: When we see Rogers remove the record from the sleeve, the grandfather clock behind him shows it's 9 o'clock. Several minutes follow as the recorded voice lists all the crimes of the 10 Indians, and in particular when Mrs. Rogers faints, behind her you can see the clock is still stuck at 9 o'clock. The clock returns to advance, and does it quickly, after Rogers hands the note to the judge and Mrs. Rogers yells at him. (00:12:50 - 00:16:10)
