Continuity mistake: The white carnations in the vase on the piano (Higgin's study) move around from shot to shot during the scene immediately after the Embassy ball.

Continuity mistake: In the song "I'm Getting Married in the Morning" there is a bottle of gin or something similar on the bar. When the bar-lady pours Alfred a drink, the bottle is close to the bar handles (those knob things in local pubs, they control the amount of beer pouring out), but as the song progresses the bottle gets further and further away from the bar-lady.

Continuity mistake: Watch Professor Higgins during the 'You Did It' number after the Embassy Ball. He sits down, taking off his shoes. At one point, he has a shoe in one hand and a cigar in the other. The cigar shoots to the other hand and the shoe disappears, then it goes back.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the song "Just An Ordinary Man," Rex Harrison races around the room switching on several separate phonograph players (which are all mechanical devices), producing a dissonant, squabbling ruckus. But, a moment later, as he utters the last line of the song, "I shall never let a woman in my life," he switches off the one phonograph nearest to him, and ALL the mechanical phonographs in the room stop playing instantly.

Continuity mistake: When Eliza is singing 'I could have danced all night' her maids help her put on her nightdress. The sleeve on the left arm is left undone as she enters the bathroom and is washing her face. However as she exists the bathroom the sleeve can now be seen tied up.
