Other mistake: Tom Ripley's ticket says first class in the limo, but when he boards, the rich girl says she saw his stuff in the third class stack. Dickie also says that he's a third class mooch, but according to his ticket he rode first class, so that'd make him a first class mooch, not third. His cabin is never shown. (00:07:20)
Continuity mistake: When Marge gets out of the water and climbs the stairs on the sailboat her swimsuit is blue. But when she is on board and we get a close up it is red.
Question: At the end of the movie, when Tom finds out that Meredith is on the boat, he wants to kill either her or Peter because they both believe different stories about him and might run into each other. Is there any reason why he chose to kill Peter?
