Continuity mistake: When the team are about to jump from the cable car into the river, the view from ground level shows a bare road with no snow on it on the right and a line of trees on the left with German trucks parked next to them, but the view from the cable car shows a snow-covered road and no trucks beside the trees.

Continuity mistake: Truly crashes into the pond three times: first when the kids are playing in the road and she takes them home, second on the day of the picnic when she says she has nothing else to do and will go on the picnic too, and third at the end of the film when Potts finds out he is rich. In the second of these three, when Mr. Potts carries Truly from her car in the pond, the end of the ribbons on the back of her dress gets soaked in mud, but when you see her again at the beach there is no sign of the dirt.
Continuity mistake: When the spaceship first springs a leak and begins to sink, the interior shots show it tilting to starboard; Taylor falls against the starboard bulkhead and the other two survivors need to brace themselves from slipping. All of the exterior shots of the ship show it level from port to starboard.BocaDavie
Continuity mistake: The girl dressed in a pastel pink and gold dress, the one that Benvolio likes, is behind him talking in the shot that he's looking out into the dance floor. But in the next shot, the girl comes out from another area, then again in the shot after that, behind Benvolio. (00:23:26)
Continuity mistake: Rosemary tries a third time to figure out the anagram with the Scrabble letters and comes up with "elf shot lame witch". She tries a fourth time and comes up with "how his hell fact me". She decides to give up and begins putting the letters away when she has an idea and pulls the book close to her and we see the wrong set of letters back on the floor "elf shot lame witch".

Continuity mistake: Hrundi is watching Bill Kelso and his lady friend playing pool. As he watches, note that all of the pool balls are in the corner of the table. Hrundi then talks to them and becomes friendly and gets Kelso's autograph. Then, during the scene suddenly all the pool balls have changes their position and they are now spread out instead of being in the corner. Nobody moved them and nobody shot the balls.
Continuity mistake: At the very end Fleming sees the dead body of his girlfriend being hoisted onto a gurney - she is soaking wet, having been hauled out of the swimming pool. Later we see it is a policewoman acting as a stand-in in order to fool him into talking - and after a few minutes under a blanket on the gurney she, her bikini, and her hair are all bone dry. Not only that, her hair looks like it has just been styled and her makeup is perfect.
Continuity mistake: In the opening sequence, Felix (Jack Lemmon) goes into the Metropole Cafe. One of the people he passes as he enters is a young woman with a thin face and very distinctive nose and eyes. He goes in, has a drink, hurts his neck, and leaves. As he is leaving, the camera pans the band and go-go dancers. One of the dancers is the young woman who had just left as he was entering.
