Continuity mistake: When Wallace and Davis are on the train heading for the club car, they bump the door to the stateroom where the Haynes' sisters are. In the morning when they are getting ready to disembark, the sisters are in sleeping berths, not the stateroom.

Suggested correction: They all change to berths because they have to split the cost of a room for two to sleeping for 4. Intentional not an error.

Not possible since the conductor said to Wallace and Davis there was no room on the train. He said if they buy tickets, they can sit up in the Club Car all night.

Possibly a change of trains in D, C, OR MY.

It takes more than one night to get to Vermont. The train would stop in New York before Vermont so there would conceivably be more room when people left the train.

I don' think so. Because when the guys get on the train and don't have the ticket's the conductor tells them all that the train is full and all that is left is the club car. There must be a cut scene or something because this one sticks out like a sore thumb.

The conductor said there was no space available. The train was all booked up so there were no berths available even if they wanted to that. It's just another continuity error, period.

Continuity mistake: During the morning outside following the buttermilk scene in the inn where "Counting My Blessings" was sung, Bob arrives in a jeep to talk to the general. Bob shows him a hand bill for the upcoming show, which has a reddish top trim. He sits down with the hand bill on his leg in order to light a match for the general's cigarette. The hand bill falls to the ground. However, in the next shot, the hand bill is in Bob's right outside coat pocket with other papers (he may have done that after the previous shot to keep it from falling to the ground but it wasn't caught).

Suggested correction: He has multiple playbills in his hand. He takes one and puts the rest in his pocket. This doesn't seem to be a goof.

Just watched it. The playbill falls to the ground and goes out of frame, no attempt to pick it up, but later when they stand up the playbill is not on the ground where it fell. The playbills in the coat pocket are unrelated to the continuity error.

Continuity mistake: The train that transports The Haynes Sisters and Wallace and Davis from Florida to Vermont is shown as being of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway in one sequence, and of the Southern Pacific Railroad in another. Neither railway ran on the east coast of the U.S.

Question: What is the white drink the bartender makes on the train?

Answer: It looks like a frozen daiquiri, a drink made with rum, lime juice, light syrup, and ice that is mixed in a blender to make it slushy.
