A Bout with a Trout pictureA Bout with a Trout mistake picture

Continuity mistake: As the episode starts, Lulu is snoring in bed. The purple head board of her bed is in the light in such a way that it is diagonally lit up from the top left to bottom right. When the angle changes as she gets up, the lighting has flipped so the bottom part is lit rather than the top. There is also a window that suddenly appears in the wall by her bed that was not there in the previous shot. (00:01:05)

Out of the Past picture

Plot hole: Early in the movie, when Joe Stefanos tells Mary, the owner of the luncheonette, that he found Jeff Bailey by passing by and seeing the name on the sign of the gas station, it makes no sense. He only knew him by the name Jeff Markham. Even if he was just lying to her, he uses the same explanation when he is alone talking to Jeff. We never know how he found him.
