Singin' in the Rain picture

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.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Bing Crosby is talking to Ethel Barrymore at a picnic day for the girls of he very snobbish school, he makes a big deal out of taking out a cigarette and lighting it, but in the next shot - no cigarette.
