Suggested correction: Cars can be imported from overseas. It's very possible the car was imported from America.

Factual error: When Cruella as a child makes her way to London and crosses the zebra/pedestrian crossing, there are visible zig zag markings. These however were not introduced until 1971 in England, which is the time period when Cruella is older.

Continuity mistake: In the scene about the upcoming show the Baroness states she needs 12 key looks. She turns to count what she has and pulls down 10 looks that fill the board. When she turns back to face the staff she comments on the need for 10 looks.

Continuity mistake: At the Black and White party, when Cruella is taken to the Baroness, the position of Cruella's right hand has no continuity whatsoever in any of the shots.


Character mistake: Whenever Catherine visits the Baroness with young Estella, before she gets murdered, she asks the Baroness for money so that her and Estella could start a new life. Since Estella is being spoken about, the Baroness is aware of her at this point. However, later on in the movie, the Baroness questions John, "What did you think I meant when I said take care of the problem?!" Implying she thought Estella had already been killed when she was a baby.

Baroness: Let me give you some advice. You can't care about anyone. Everyone else is an obstacle. You care about what an obstacle wants or feels, you're dead. If I cared about anyone or thing, I might have died like so many brilliant women with a drawer full of unseen genius and a heart full of sad bitterness. You have the talent for your own label. Whether you have the killer instinct is the big question.

Question: Why did the Baroness kill Estella's adoptive mother? Why not just give her money and whatever help she needed?


Answer: The Baroness probably thought that if she gave Estella's adoptive mother money and help that time, she would keep asking for more and more money under threat of revealing the secret that the Baroness was the girl's real mother. Killing her meant one less person who knew her secret and could hold it over her.
