Other mistake: In Gene Kelly's 'Singing in the Rain' sequence, the taps he makes do not match up with the actual movements of his feet - they are much more complicated than the steps he makes. Since one can't tap dance in wet loafers, Kelly had to do the dance in the studio, and the taps were added into the picture. He apparently got a little overzealous.
Other mistake: During the car chase an Indian shoots an arrow that bounces off the car's license plate and comes back and hits the Indian. But a second before the arrow hits the Indian you can see him sitting on his horse with his eyes closed and a look of pain on his face as though the arrow had already hit him.
Continuity mistake: When the little dog uses a candle to heat up the door knob, Spike runs into the house and burns his hand. When he goes up to the hill, you can see the door is open, but when he returns to the house, the door is now closed.
Continuity mistake: When Tom (dressed as a seal) performs "Yankee Doodle" on the horns at the circus at the end of the cartoon, the background behind him changes between shots.
Continuity mistake: When Jerry is removing the nail from Spike's foot with a hammer, the distance of the wall behind Spike changes between shots.
Continuity mistake: When the green devil recalls the time Tom serenaded another girl with his big bull fiddle, his whiskers disappear for a moment.
Continuity mistake: When Sam confronts Bugs underneath the box with the cord, you can see that there is nothing above the words "Pull", but in the next shot the words "Bomb Release" suddenly appear.
Continuity mistake: The pictures on the wall of Calvero's apartment move around during the scenes, particularly the photos flanking the clock on the mantle above the fireplace. A particularly striking example is during the scene wherein Terry recovers the ability to walk. The scene starts off with a photographic-profile-portrait of Chaplin (not decked out as Calvero the Clown) on the left side of the clock and on the right side of the clock, a full-length photo of Calvero the Clown wearing a straw hat, and leaning on his cane, which is held in his left hand. As the scene progresses, the portrait to the left of the clock is replaced by a half-length photo of Calvero the Clown wearing a top hat, with his cane swung across his body, angled up. As Terry realizes she can walk, the portrait re-appears to the left of the clock, and there is nothing to the right of the clock.Richard Lannom
