Visible crew/equipment: At the end of the film, taking place in a sunny field, Paul holds the bedknob and in both of the final shots about 3 or 4 lighting screens are reflected.

Visible crew/equipment: When the rabbit jumps on Ms. Price's lap, she tells him to jump off. Watch the close-up and a stunt's red hand appears from where her belly is supposed to be and pushes the animal away.

Visible crew/equipment: When Ms. Price is riding her broom in the beginning, you can sometimes see that she is not riding a broomstick but instead a saddle-like mechanical object.

Visible crew/equipment: After the cat hisses at the children and Miss Price says they startled him, the cat is shown moaning and you can see a shadow moving across its head. It's not Miss Price, as she is up on the stairs, and it's not the children, as they are not close enough and are trying to keep their distance as they move towards the stairs. This is likely a crew member moving toward the cat in order to get it to react. (00:10:10)

Plot hole: When Miss Price, Professor Browne and the children return from their magical journey to the island of Naboombu and realize they no longer have the Star of Astroroth pendant, Miss Price says, "I should have known it would be quite impossible to take an object from one world into another." Yet, they had no problem taking themselves, the bed, blankets and pillows from one world into another.

Question: How accurate, bar the dancing obviously, is the Portobello Road presented in the film compared to how it could/would have looked in the real August 1940?

Neil Jones

Answer: Don't know what it was like in the forties, but we were there in 2010. Wonderful place to visit. So animated. Not only were their vendors, but there were Street entertainers as well. What I found amusing was before you get to the part of Portobello Road where there were these vendors, you had to go past the stately homes with gated grounds. Expensive cars with pull into the drives. Wouldn't happen here in the United States.
