How to Marry a Millionaire (1953)

6 mistakes

Continuity mistake: After Tom helps Loco with the grocery bags, Schatze tells Loco that gentleman callers must wear neckties, and when it cuts to the wideshots of the taxicab turning and pulling up to the curb we see the building's revolving door (real door in NYC), but in the next closeup the revolving door (studio set) differs greatly.

Continuity mistake: While Brewster and Loco are headed back to NYC they pay the GW Bridge toll, and when three police motorcycles start following them only one of the motorcycles has a windshield, but in the shot facing Loco and Brewster we can see that now two of the motorcycles behind the car have windshields, and then it's back to only one again.

Continuity mistake: While Tom and Schatze are at the diner, when Tom tells her that she's "strictly a hamburger and onions dame" Tom's holding a lit cigarette, but as he passes the ketchup to Schatze the cigarette is replaced with a napkin, between shots.

Other mistake: When Tom calls Schatze the first time and mentions seeing her ads in magazines, in the following shots while Schatze's on the phone and particularly while she's talking to Pola, we see the milk carton on the table which has tape all the way around it covering its brand name on both sides.

Visible crew/equipment: After JD tells Schatze that Tom came to the wedding and he isn't wearing a tie, just as Schatze says, "Who does he think he is anyway, crashing my wedding," we can see the shadow of the boom mic drop into view on the wall, at the left side of the screen.

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.
