Factual error: Jane Russell and others say several times that they are sailing from New York to Paris. They might have been sailing to Cherbourg or Le Havre, but they couldn't have been sailing to Paris. The producer seems to assume that if they referred to Le Havre or Cherbourg, viewers wouldn't be able to sort it out.
Visible crew/equipment: When Calamity and Katie are driving back on the stage they are attacked by Indians before they arrive in town. Calamity starts shooting at them from behind the large suitcase with Adellaid Adams wrote on it. Initially there is no mark on the suitcase but halfway through the scene a black mark appears below the D of Adellaid and if you look very closely you can see the piece of string along which the arrow is shot.Tallicame

Continuity mistake: While Schatze's getting ready for her wedding, when Pola comes in she tries on the fur stole and instead of putting the fur stole back on the bed it slips onto the floor, but when Loco walks in with Eben the fur stole is lying on the bed beside the fur coat, though it wasn't touched. Pola's fur wrap near the flowers has also moved. (01:21:55)Super Grover
