My Fair Lady

Other mistake: When Eliza throws the slippers at Higgins, one bounces off him and falls in the area of the doorway and the other lands in the middle of the hall. One slipper is seen in the hall in two different scenes, then when Higgins goes to pick them up they are both together in the hall.

Visible crew/equipment: When Professor Higgins is having Eliza practice saying the letter H by blowing into a tube to make the flame waver, the paper she's holding is actually Rex Harrison's lines. Once the paper starts to burn and the camera angle changes, you can read them and it's practically all of his lines for the whole scene.
