Continuity mistake: Mr. Qua is watering the flowers and as Polly Cutler speaks to the Kettering's we see the front of the car and there's no water on the gravel by the tire. After they get into the car and drive away in the next shot, there's a lot of water on the gravel. (00:45:15)

????

Continuity mistake: After fishing on the Niagara river with the Cutler's, Mr. Kettering pulls his boat up to a dock that is in the shade. In the next shot the dock is in the sunlight. (01:11:30)

????

Other mistake: The Cutler's now occupy cabin B at the Rainbow Cabins and just before we see George Loomis by the garbage cans in the back of the cabin Polly decides to take a nap. When she gets up from the bed to close the Venetian blinds we see the pillow case and it's white, but two shots later after the blinds are closed she lays down again and the pillow case has a huge dark make up stain on it from several previous takes. (00:46:20)

????

Other mistake: In Canada the Cutlers take the Scenic Tunnel tour, and if you look closely the cash register keeps ringing up zero as they and the people in front of them purchase tickets. (00:12:20)

????

Continuity mistake: As the Cutlers drive into the Rainbow Cabins it's clear to see that Polly's vent window is closed. She doesn't touch it but when the manager helps her out of the car it's open. (00:07:10)

????

Continuity mistake: The Cutlers drive up to the Rainbow Cabins and Ray reaches for the ignition to turn the car off as they speak to the manager. In the next shot his right hand is leaning on the front car seat. (00:06:30)

????

Continuity mistake: The manager knocks on the door to cabin B and the stone post in the background on the left of the screen is in direct sunlight. Two minutes of uninterrupted movie time goes by but as the Cutlers get ready to leave the stone post, and the falls behind them are no longer in direct sunlight. (00:08:00)

????

Visible crew/equipment: At the Rainbow Cabins the Cutlers sit in their car and the manager says, "I've got you down for cabin B". The shadow of a boom mike moves across his face as he approaches the car. (00:06:40)

????

Factual error: The Rainbow Cabins are on the Canadian side of the falls and when Ray Cutler looks over at the shredded wheat plant he should be looking at the American side. But the error here is that they show the Sir Adam Beck Generating Station which is also on the Canadian side of the falls. (00:06:50)

????

Continuity mistake: The manager knocks on the door to cabin B and Marilyn comes walking out. The shades to her right are closed but two shots later they're opened. (00:08:25)

????

Visible crew/equipment: The Cutlers drive over the bridge into Canada and speak with the customs officer. If you look closely when the camera films over the customs officers back you can see the reflection of the crew standing behind him in the windows behind the car. (00:05:40)

????

Continuity mistake: Ray Cutler says to the customs officer, "I'm going to catch up on my reading" and his right arm is leaning on the seat of the car. In the next shot his arm is at his side. (00:05:45)

????

Other mistake: The first time we see George Loomis back at the Rainbow Cabins after his supposed death he's by the garbage cans in the back of cabin B with a brick wall on the left. The next time we see him two shots later the film has been reversed with the brick wall now being on the right. (00:46:45)

????

Continuity mistake: Marilyn walks up to the ticket booth and gets a refund for one of the tickets to Chicago that she bought earlier in the movie. Looking at her luggage we see no marks on it at all. She picks it up the same way she puts it down, but in the next shot a large black mark appears on the front of it. (01:01:15)

????

Continuity mistake: As Polly Cutler lays out on a beach chair sunning herself Ray steps back and decides to take a picture of her sitting there. Niagara Falls, which are always seen behind them are not in this shot, which has obviously been filmed on a sound stage. The bushes against the stone pillar are also different. (00:34:55)

????

Continuity mistake: As Marilyn walks into room 7-A of the City Morgue to identify her husband George she's carrying her pocketbook in her right hand. After she sees the body she faints and falls to the floor but we never hear the pocketbook hit the floor because it has been neatly placed next to her before she fell. (00:42:05)

????

Revealing mistake: As Marilyn walks out during the outdoor party at the Rainbow Cabins, we see an artificial painted backdrop of Niagara Falls behind her that is nowhere near the actual falls that we saw earlier in the movie. (00:17:20)

????

Continuity mistake: Polly Cutler enters cabin B in order to put some Mercurochrome on George Loomis' cut hand. At first the yellow notice on the left door post is entirely in the light, then in the next shot as she walks through the door the lighting has changed and it's in the shade. (00:20:45)

????

Continuity mistake: As George Loomis goes over to the front door and shuts the lights so that Polly Cutler can see the falls in the dark, a pink sweater appears on the red and white chair behind him. (00:23:00)

????

Continuity mistake: After Polly Cutler enters cabin B in order to put some Mercurochrome on George Loomis' cut hand the model car that he has been assembling sits on the table to the right of the front door. It moves closer to the ashtray as the scene progresses. (00:22:55)

????

George Loomis: I loved you, Rose. You know that.
