Coffin Ed: One thing for sure, it ain't drugstore cotton.

Cotton Comes to Harlem mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the police catches the pickpocketer at the beginning, they literally lift him off the ground. There is a close-up shot in between, and the lack of continuity is apparent in the hand position of the man. Not just that: vehicles obviously disappear and appear in every cut.
