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.
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: Georgia takes off her mink coat and tosses it on a chair. As she walks away we see another coat draped over the back of the chair but this coat was not there a second ago. Helen walks over, adjusts the mink coat and sits on the arm of the chair (with the mink coat under her). During the remainder of the scene the positions of the two coats keep changing. As Sam walks out of the room we see a throw pillow that has suddenly appeared between the mink coat and the back of the chair. (00:45:30)Junius
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 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.
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.aftucci
