The Hudsucker Proxy

Other mistake: When Norville takes the blue letter up to the top floor, there are several problems with Buzz and the three columns of elevator destination lights that he operates. When Norville enters, he is the only person on the elevator, but another floor is already lit up. When the next three employees enter the elevator, this other light has moved from 7th highest to 3rd highest in the left column. Two of the three employees are going to floors 11 and 37, yet Buzz only lights up floors in the right column (with three columns, each light in a column should differ by three, but 37-11=26, and 26 is not divisible by three). When Mr. Greer enters the elevator Buzz pushes at least two more buttons because when the elevator stops again, we can see at least seven floors lit up.


Other mistake: When Norville first mentions his invention (you know, for kids!) to the elderly mail sorter, he shows him the paper with the circle drawn on it and he says "Yessiree this is my ticket upstairs" As Norville says this, the lower part of his face is visible at the top of the screen and you can see that his mouth does not move.
