Dial M for Murder

Factual error: The Inspector has no authority at all to release a convicted murderer about to be executed. Even if he could, the police presence would have been greater and Margot would have been in prison clothes or at least in restraints.

Continuity mistake: Before Tony leaves he closes the drapes. He then says he won't go out and will stay home. She says to go out, and he agrees, so he goes to the drapes and closes them again.
