Miracle on 34th Street picture

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.

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. (01:31:10)

Black Narcissus picture

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).

King-Size Canary picture

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.

High Wall picture

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.
