Best movie mistakes of 1947
Continuity mistake: When Dr. Sawyer is giving Kris the exam, during the part where Kris is doing the physical coordination test, we see Kris from Sawyer's point of view, and Sawyer is drumming his fingers. When the shot switches to Kris's, he is fingering his eyebrow. When it switches back, fingers drumming. Finally, when it switches back again, his hands are neatly folded in front of him.
Other mistake: In the 1946 MGM film "Good News" - there is a minor flub in the last musical dance number -The Varsity Drag. About 131.13 into the film- a woman dancer wearing a pink dress - just to the left of the screen- stumbles forward and almost falls onto her face while dancing. They left this scene in for some reason. (01:31:10)
Continuity mistake: Pinkie sweeps all the glasses on top of the bar onto the floor, yet after he and his gang have gone we see broken glass on the bar top.
Continuity mistake: As Lulu is racing up to the school, you see the brick base of the school house and that the bricks are a dark red color. It then cuts to a closer angle as she is about to pull her fishing pole out of the steps and suddenly the bricks are now a light grey. Also in the same shots, you see first that the tree's shadow is lay across the walkway in front of the steps. But in the close up the shadow is nowhere to be seen. (00:01:55)Quantom X
Continuity mistake: At the end, Lucy is sitting in the big chair in her bedroom, and Martha leaves, pulling the door closed with her. In the next shot, the door is wide open. In addition when Lucy dies, her head is turned to her right, but as she leaves as a ghost, she looks back at herself, and her head is now turned to the left.kh1616
Other mistake: When Daffy is helping the guest to his room, he looks at his keys as to which one would open it. When he finds the right key, he somehow manages to open the door without unlocking it.
Continuity mistake: When the mouse lands in the lion's stomach, he falls between two bones. In the next shot, the bones are now in front of the mouse.
Continuity mistake: When Pluto sits on Mickey Mouse's top hat, the hat goes into the air and you can see behind Pluto there is a green armchair. But when the hat comes down on Pluto's head, the armchair is nowhere to be seen.
Continuity mistake: Mrs. Kraft is playing cards with the bellboy, resting her feet on the shelf under the table. She drops her cards on the floor, and when she gets down on the floor to pick up the cards a large cushion has appeared on the shelf where only a moment ago her feet were resting. (01:00:00)Junius
Continuity mistake: When Jerry replaces two keys on the piano with a mousetrap, Tom gets his finger caught and there is a catch lever at the bottom of the trap. But in the next shot when Tom pulls up the mousetrap and his finger expands, the catch lever has disappeared.
Continuity mistake: When the dogs run away from the Mexican hairless dog after thinking she's a skunk, the Mexican dog's ears are pointing up but in the next shot they are pointing down.
Continuity mistake: When Tom is about to drop the iron on Jerry, he is holding some cheese on a piece of string in his left hand. When the iron drops on Tom's foot, he is no longer holding the string.
Continuity mistake: When Tom is tip-toeing past the gate at the start of the cartoon, Spike is sleeping and you can see there is nothing around his neck, but in the next shot a dog collar has suddenly appeared.
Continuity mistake: In the scene towards the very end of the film when Sister Ruth goes to see Mr. Dean, she is wearing a great deal of lipstick - in fact, her make-up is indicative of her having left the religious order run by Sister Clodagh. She becomes hysterical and faints. When she wakes up she's no longer wearing any lipstick (no indeed any make-up at all).russbowes
Continuity mistake: When Jerry opens the door of the refrigerator, there is a piece of corn on the cob on a plate and next to it is a bowl of eggs. In the next shot, the eggs have become fruit.
Continuity mistake: When the cat places the tiny canary on to the plate, the salt and pepper pots on the table change positions between shots, and the cabinets in the background disappear. He also has a knife and fork in his hands, but after the canary says he's been sick, we return to the cat and the knife and fork have disappeared.
Continuity mistake: When Robert Taylor escapes from the asylum, and is driving the second car he steals, the car is shown at least once with windshield wipers pivoting from above the windshield, then shown with the wipers pivoting from below the windshield. Clearly, these are two different cars. I think the studio borrowed wiper footage from the scene in which he is driving the first stolen car, to use at moments in the scene in which he is driving in the second car.
Continuity mistake: When Butch points his pistol at Tom, you can see that the handle has nothing written on it, but in the next shot the words "Ajax" have appeared.
