They Won't Believe Me picture

Good News picture

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.

Audio problem: As Lulu drops from the moon beam onto some books, the school house says "Or would you rather be a mule?" It pauses for a moment, and then you hear the school house begin singing about a mule as the camera cuts to a close up of the mule drawing in a book. But a split second before the cut, the school house begins his singing, and gets a couple words in before the camera cut. However you can see the school house’s mouth is not moving at this point.
