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: In the dream, the school house asks Lulu if she'd rather be a pig and pulls up a blackboard with the word PIG written on it. There is a stick of chalk at the bottom of the board to the right. When it cuts to a close up of the blackboard, the chalk suddenly moves closer to the center of the board and is almost under the word PIG. (00:04:40)Quantom X
Audio problem: When Daffy is singing when cleaning the window in the businessman's room, his beak doesn't move when he sings "passes you by."
Continuity mistake: When we see the start of Carmen Miranda's performance, she is positioned in front of the other customers. In the next shot, she is now positioned in front of a wall.
Continuity mistake: When Jerry is sleeping in Tom's tackle box, he takes off his dressing gown and leaves it there when Tom takes him out of the box. But when Jerry races back to the tackle box and starts shivering, the dressing gown has gone.
Continuity mistake: When Mickey Mouse is chasing his hat, he has no cane. But after falling out of the dustbin, he has the cane again and this time it is hooked.
Continuity mistake: When Thomas' mistress comes down the stairs after hearing a crash in the front room, the items on top of Thomas are different to the ones seen only a few seconds earlier.
Continuity mistake: Jerry sets Tom's left foot on fire, but when Tom rushes to the goldfish bowl to put out the fire, he puts his right foot in the bowl.
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.
