Revealing mistake: In the opening titles, when Holly looks in the store window, in the background a policeman can be seeing holding up traffic for the filming.

Revealing mistake: During the opening credits, a shot of Hepburn looking into Tiffany's window from inside the store has her taking a sip of coffee. The cup is tilted and the level of the coffee is also tilted, which suggests that the cup simply had a brown coffee-colored insert so that no liquid would be spilled. (00:01:41)

Continuity mistake: When Holly and Paul are at the library viewing Paul's book, Holly encourages Paul to autograph the library's copy of his book.

Question: When Paul knocks on Holly's door and she isn't wearing anything, she says to him "would you turn around? Oh, never mind, it's such a silly line anyway - I'll turn around instead." What joke is she referring to?

Answer: Holly is referring to the fact that people often ask others in the room "Will you turn around?" when they are dressing or in the nude, so the person cannot see them naked. She is simply stating she thinks it is odd that the second person is always asked to turn around, when the person herself could turn around.
