Corrected entry: During most of "A Wonderful Guy," Nellie's lips are out of sync with the words she is singing.

Correction: I retract this one. It was a problem with my cassette, not the movie itself.

Corrected entry: When Cable and Emile are hiding out on the island, during their first radio transmission, Emile reports on the weather. He says something about "nine o'clock to four o'clock" and Cable corrects him by saying "0900 to 1400." Four o'clock is 1600 hours, not 1400.

Correction: Emile says "two o'clock," not "four."

Continuity mistake: When Luther Billis is parachuting out of the plane, he is seen with a pistol in his hands. Once he is in the rubber boat and starts paddling, however, the pistol has become a rifle.

Question: Why was Bloody Mary's singing voice dubbed, given that Juanita Hall was a strong singer who had performed the role on Broadway?

Answer: Richard Rogers preferred the vocal performance of Muriel Smith who played the part in London. Since the vocal tracks for musicals was recorded separately from the filming back then, dubbing occurred for many reasons other than lack of singing ability of an actor, scheduling problems, budget, etc.
