Suggested correction: 1) This only appears in the preview version of the film, not the final version. 2) Why would an apartment building not have an exit sign? Can you cite a reference for this? I would think someone making a contemporary film would notice if it was such an obvious error you think it is.

Other mistake: When Bruno returns to Metcalf to plant the lighter at the fairground, the passenger to his right in the club car asks for a light. Bruno carefully offers him a matchbook, rather than the crucial lighter. Guy Haines travels back to Metcalf by a different train, but the same man is sitting to his right in the club car - just slightly further away. Either this guy can travel on two trains at once, or there was a bit too much economy with the bit part actors.

Trivia: When mom exposes her pretty scary painting to Bruno it very much resembles the key scene in the film "The Picture of Dorian Gray" from 1945.
