The Rose picture

Continuity mistake: When Bette Midler is in the phone booth toward the end of the film, calling home and crying, she empties out her purse on the little shelf. A huge roll of money is prominently placed amongst the coins and other items. From shot to shot it can be seen sitting upright and then on its side.

Rock 'n' Roll High School picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where one of the hall monitors is folding the principal's note into a paper airplane, watch his cigarette. It goes from being in his mouth, to being in his hand and back without him moving it.

Roller Boogie picture

Continuity mistake: When Linda Blair deliberately knocks a plate of desserts into one of her suitor's lap, the tray hits him directly in the crotch and the camera shows this. Then there is a cut to Linda Blair's face and then a cut back to the boys clothing and the scene now shows the desserts all over his suit from the shoulders down.
