Continuity mistake: In a bedroom at the mansion of the late Ebenezer Laurel, Jervis the butler points to the spot where Ebenezer was murdered. In a close-up of Laurel and Hardy, the shadow of the butler's outstretched arm and index finger can be seen. However, in the following shot of the butler, his arm is still at his side. Then he raises his arm to point.

Continuity mistake: While fishing on a dock, Stan crumples up part of a newspaper and throws it toward the water. When the newspaper blows back and hits Ollie's face, the pages are flat and uncrumpled.

Stanley: Ollie?
Oliver: What's the matter?
Stanley: I'm scared.
Oliver: Well, that's nothing to be afraid of.
