Best comedy movie mistakes of 1954
Other mistake: In analogy to David's mishap with the champagne glasses old Mr. Larrabee crushes an olive jar when he sits down. However, in contrast to David he puts the jar into the front pocket of his pants, and olive jars don't break even if you sit on them (remember what he did to one when he tried to get the last olive out.).
Continuity mistake: At one point bus driver Frankie Howard shins up a signpost to read road directions in the fog. The sign says WET PAINT and he slides down with his uniform jacket streaked and ruined. However, several minutes earlier, as he leans forward to peer into the night, Howard is already wearing the paint-stained jacket.
Continuity mistake: When Tom attempts to squirt Jerry with the bottle of seltzer, Nibbles sets the freezer to Quick Freeze which freezes the floor and Tom is left frozen. You can see that when Tom is frozen, the bottle leaves an icicle of frozen water, but when Jerry and Nibbles dance around Tom at the end, the icicle has disappeared.
Continuity mistake: When Spike threatens to kill Tom for giving him the hiccups, you can see that there is a burst paper bag by Spike and there is nothing in Tyke's bed, but when Tom crashes on the ground after climbing onto the house's guttering, the paper bag has disappeared and there is now a pillow and blanket in Tyke's bed.
Continuity mistake: When Piggy is seated at the dinner table, there is a bowl of fruit with a yellow lid next to it, and Piggy has in front of him a plate with a spoon on one side and a knife and fork on the other. After Piggy's mother stops him from taking some fruit, we cut back to Piggy, and the bowl of fruit and yellow lid have disappeared, and he only now has a spoon by the plate.
Continuity mistake: When Jerry and one of the puppies hear Tom whistling during the thunderstorm, you can see that there is a newspaper by the puppy when he and Jerry look out from their shelter, but when Tom falls into the river, we cut back to Jerry and the puppy and the newspaper has disappeared.
