Deliberate mistake: At the end when PT hands over his top hat to Philip, Philip has a coat with tails. They disappear during his number. In fact they disappear mid-shot - he runs onstage and they're there when he starts sliding, but disappear in the split second he's behind a woman in a purple dress. (01:34:25)
Continuity mistake: When Zac Efron and Hugh Jackman are talking in the circus tent during the second performance of the song at The Greatest Show, Zac's jacket is unbuttoned, revealing his button up shirt, ascot, and formal vest, but as he runs on stage, his jacket is magically buttoned up, and there is no sign of lumps from the ascot.
Factual error: At the end the museum burns down to the ground and Barnum and Phillip decide to open up again. However once the new circus is open we see Barnum leave to see his daughter perform in the ballet. But in reality it was over 5 years from when the museum burnt down to when the circus opened. Yet his daughter is the same age.A Demon
Factual error: When they go to visit the Queen, the Union flag is being flown above Buckingham Palace. The union flag is only flown when the Queen is not in residence. As the Queen is in residence, the 'Royal Standard' flag should be flown. And anyway, the union flag has only been flown at the palace since the death of Princess Diana in 1997.nitpicker101
