My Fair Lady

Factual error: In the Ascot racing scene, the actors' heads move from their left to right when the horses come to the winning line. From the stands at Ascot, the horses run clockwise around the track and would enter from right to left.

Deliberate mistake: When Eliza is about to be bathed, the mirror keeps turning around between shots to avoid reflecting the filming crew.

Trivia: Audrey Hepburn was not the only voice that was dubbed. The actor who plays Freddy had his voice dubbed as well, so in their scene together with the song 'show me' neither of them are singing.
