Cinderella

Continuity mistake: After the King tells the Duke to keep an eye on the waltz, the way the Duke holds his monocle differs between the wide angle and the POV shot.

Continuity mistake: In the aerial angle of the palace, when the girls are about to salute the prince, there are about a dozen girls waiting. A shot later there are twice as many.

Continuity mistake: When Cinderella arrives at the palace, in the close-up the soldiers are very close together, their shoulder pieces touching each other. In the wide angles they're a meter apart.

Continuity mistake: When the sisters order Cinderella to iron their dresses, the amount of stuff on the floor is not consistent with the first shots and the stuff that the sisters later throw.

Continuity mistake: When the mice open a small door and see Cinderella holding all the clothes and being scorned by the sisters, the little door keeps changing colours between shots: From solid pink to grey, to wood-grain texture.

Continuity mistake: Before the animals start to sew Cinderella's dress Jack says "Cinderella might not go to the ball", then a mouse sitting on the edge of a spool of thread with a needle showing behind her cries "What?" The shot changes and she's now sitting on the center of the spool and the needle is nowhere to be seen. This changes back and forth depending on the angle.

Continuity mistake: Cinderella places her mother's sewing book with the binding standing on the edge of the right side of the trunk. A shot later the book has moved 15 cm to the left.

Continuity mistake: When Cinderella dances with her mother's dress check the basket on the floor: the spool of thread on the floor and the scissors inside the basket suddenly appear between shots.

Continuity mistake: When the birds throw the sponge into the basin, in the closeup shot the basin's edge has a simple style, as opposed to the ornamented one in the wide angles.

Continuity mistake: After the stepsisters destroy Cinderella's dress and she runs away, all the rags on the floor disappear in the aerial angle. They're not offscreen: Check the pattern of the floor and the column behind. Also, the object on the table behind her disappears too.

Continuity mistake: After throwing the bookends away, the King leans on the table and stares at the Duke. In the first shot the King's tummy lies on the table and his left hand grabs the left edge. A shot later he is half a meter away, standing by the table with both hands lying by his belly.

Deliberate mistake: The first time we see the King, the bookends and books are sketchy drawings that bear no relation to the fully detailed ones that we see afterwards.

Continuity mistake: Jack tells Cinderella that there's a new guest and she picks a yellow jacket, a blue piece of fabric and a pair of shoes. In the following shot the shoes disappear from her hand, and a shot later the jacket and the fabric also vanish.

Cinderella: Oh, well. What's a royal ball? After all, I suppose it would be frightfully dull, and-and-and boring, and-and completely... Completely wonderful.

Trivia: When the animators where drawing Lucifer the cat they just couldn't get it right. Then when Walt Disney saw the animator Ward Kimball's cat, a furry calico, he declared "There's your Lucifer."

Question: Near the end of the movie, the grand duke calls the footman to bring him the glass slipper, so he can try it on Cinderella. But Lady Tremaine trips the footman, causing the slipper to fly and shatter. Then Cinderella reveals she has the other slipper. The grand duke tries it on her, and find that it fits. I have a problem with that because how did he know the glass slipper Cinderella had was the same size as the one that broke?

Answer: Cinderella's entire outfit was magically created by the Fairy Godmother. Not only was the spare shoe Cinderella had in her possession identical to the other one, it likely would be charmed so that she is the only one who can wear it. It's similar to young Arthur being the only person who could pull Excalibur from the stone because he was the true king. No other woman who attended the ball wore glass slippers. If they had, they'd be able to also produce the spare shoe as proof.

Answer: Add in that how many possible glass slippers could there possibly be? It would be an incredibly uncommon type of shoe that would be amazingly difficult to make.

LorgSkyegon

Answer: Probably because it looked the same to him, and he had been handling it a lot for all the trying-ons, plus how many people have glass slippers in their closet? But you are right it heavily suggests she is the person, not proves it. But then again how many women's feet would it have already fit? He should have found many matches long before getting to Cinderella. Cinderella can't be the only woman in the kingdom with her size foot.
