Audio problem: When they first find the monster conscious, Frederick says "Is the sedative ready?" The reply, "Yes, doctor," comes from Frau Blucher, who isn't there, and doesn't make another appearance in the film until she releases the monster and he escapes. It should've been either Inga or Igor saying it.

Audio problem: As Frankenstein lures the monster back to the castle with the violin, if you watch very carefully, some of his bow movements don't match the length of the sound that is heard. (01:35:30)

Audio problem: When the Monster is tap-dancing to "Puttin' on the Ritz", the motion of his legs and feet do not correspond to the sound of the tap-dancing.
