Blue Velvet

Continuity mistake: At Ben's place, Frank enjoys a cold glass of Pabst Blue Ribbon - its colour, the level in the glass, and the amount of head change repeatedly within a few seconds.

Continuity mistake: In the first of the nightclub scenes in which Dorothy Vallens is seen singing 'Blue Velvet' her dress mysteriously changes from having straps to a halter top. The 'why' for this becomes clear later in the film - in her second nightclub appearance (the following day) she is wearing the halter top. Evidently the filmmakers cut in a shot filmed for the second scene.

Continuity mistake: When Sandy and Jeffrey are at Arlene's diner, their Coke glasses are originally only about an inch apart, and then much further apart in the next shot. The angle of the drinking straws also changes between shots. (00:17:35)
