Rosemary's Baby

Continuity mistake: Rosemary tries a third time to figure out the anagram with the Scrabble letters and comes up with "elf shot lame witch". She tries a fourth time and comes up with "how his hell fact me". She decides to give up and begins putting the letters away when she has an idea and pulls the book close to her and we see the wrong set of letters back on the floor "elf shot lame witch".

Continuity mistake: Rosemary quick fries half a piece of stake but by the time it gets from the frying pan into her plate it's a different piece without the chunk of fat attached to the side. (01:01:15)

????

Continuity mistake: Minnie gives her the necklace with the tannis root inside and Rosemary holds the chain between her thumb and first two fingers. In the next shot the chain is draped over her fingers. (00:32:15)

????

Continuity mistake: When Rosemary has decided to sneak over to the Castevet's, she removes the towels from the closet shelves. She then tries to shut the door by pushing the towels (on the floor) into the closet. We see that the closet door does NOT shut all the way. Rosemary goes to get a knife, when she gets back to the closet, the door is completely shut, and she must now turn the knob to open it. (02:06:45 - 02:07:35)

Continuity mistake: Rosemary opens her suitcase and hands a red book to the doctor. If you look closely, the dress she's wearing has sleeves and is a different one then the previous shot, which is sleeveless. (01:47:45)

????

Continuity mistake: In Doctor Hill's office Rosemary opens her suitcase and hands the red book to the doctor. When she first takes the book out of her suitcase she has a wrist watch on her left hand, then in the next shot as she hands it to him there's no wrist watch. (01:47:50)

Revealing mistake: Rosemary crosses 5th Avenue as she goes looking for a bookstore to find more material on witches and a lot of bystanders can be seen staring at the film crew. (01:36:10)

????

Continuity mistake: The morning after the birth Rosemary wakes up and startles Laura-Louise, and the face of the clock behind the bed is lit up. In the next shot as she looks at it's not lit up. It's also ticking yet the second hand doesn't move. (01:59:25)

Visible crew/equipment: As he shows them the kitchen the building manager says, "I'd be grateful to go that way myself when the time comes". As he turns around to leave the kitchen you can see the shadow of the camera on his jacket. (00:03:55)

????

Continuity mistake: Guy and Dr. Sapirstein escort Rosemary out of Dr. Hill's office into a car waiting to take her back to The Bramford and a blue and white taxi is right next to the car. In the next shot two yellow taxi cabs are there. (01:53:10)

????

Continuity mistake: After Rosemary speaks to Dr. Sapirstein's receptionist about an appointment she sits down in the waiting room and the receptionist asks her how hot it is outside. She doesn't move yet several things move behind the receptionist's head in the two shots she's in. The ash trays above the windowed file cabinet behind her move from the right side to the left side and the two small file cabinets above the large file cabinet to her right also move. (01:40:10)

????

Visible crew/equipment: As the Castevet's leave for the airport, Rosemary and Guy say goodbye to Minnie and Roman in front of The Dakota. As the cab pulls in front of them you can see the reflection of the cameraman and studio lights from across the street in it. (01:34:55)

????

Continuity mistake: When the taxi cab pulls out taking Minnie and Roman to the airport there's a red car in front of them. The next time we see the cab a few seconds later there's a white car in front of them. (01:35:35)

????

Continuity mistake: After telling Guy that she doesn't want Minnie or Roman setting foot in their apartment again Rosemary sits down in their living room and reads from the book "All Of Them Witches". If you look closely at the second shelf in the bookcase on the left of the screen several books (primarily a red one) have been added between shots. (01:33:10)

????

Visible crew/equipment: In their living room, Rosemary tells Guy that she doesn't want Minnie or Roman setting foot in their apartment again after she shows him the book Hutch gave her, "All Of Them Witches". The shadow of the boom mike can be seen going from left to right across the top of the fireplace. (01:32:55)

????

Continuity mistake: Guy follows Rosemary into the kitchen where she shows him the book Hutch gave her, "All Of Them Witches". If you look at the calendar at the right of the shot it's obvious someone other than them has been looking at it as the top month is curled up the second time we see it. (01:31:25)

????

Continuity mistake: Rosemary and Guy walk back into the kitchen as she shows him the book Hutch gave her and if you look out the kitchen window it's an entirely different time of day then it was a minute ago as they walked out of the kitchen. Several items on the window ledge and countertop have also been moved between the two shots of them in the kitchen. (01:31:20)

????

Continuity mistake: As she tries to figure out the anagram, Rosemary only uses the Scrabble letters that spell out "All Of Them Witches" yet the order of the other Scrabble letters at the top of the screen change between shots. (01:28:50)

????

Continuity mistake: Guy watches an old TV western as Rosemary lies down in bed. The TV only has one wire dangling from the bottom of it but in the next shot as the phone rings with Hutch's phone call, it now has two wires dangling from the bottom. (01:08:05)

????

Continuity mistake: The books above their head board have been rearranged from the time before the rape to the next morning when Rosemary wakes up. Normally the books might have been look at in that period of time but on this night there was definitely no reading done. (00:49:00)
