Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie when Lady Trentham is talking to Sylvia McCordle, she throws her scarf to Mary Maceachran to pack. The camera cuts to Sylvia, then back to Lady Trentham, and the scarf is back around her neck and she takes it off. (02:05:20)

Question: Why is Jennings drunk and worried about the situation? Is he just upset? I can't understand why the other maid said she would do anything he asked.

Answer: Jennings' drinking problem stems from his having been a World War I conscientious objector, for which he was imprisoned. He has kept this secret and is worried the police investigation will uncover his past and jeopardize his job. The maid, Dorothy, is secretly in love with Jennings and wants to protect him.
