Rosemary's Baby

Continuity mistake: Guy talks about Hutch and says to Rosemary who's lying in bed, "I think those boys adventure stories are going to his head". The pile of magazines to her right moves toward the edge of the night table between shots without being touched. (01:09:10)

????

Continuity mistake: Hutch calls and wants to speak to Rosemary who is lying down in bed reading a book. After the conversation Guy asks her, "What was that?" and the book she was reading is now flipped over and underneath the phone. (01:09:10)

????

Continuity mistake: Hutch pays Rosemary a visit and is shocked by her appearance as they sit and talk in the living room. If you look closely there are two cushions placed between the record player and the record holder on the left in the screen. Two shots later when Roman walks into the room there's one cushion there and Hutch didn't move. (01:02:25)

????

Continuity mistake: Roman walks into the living room and sees Hutch sitting there on the couch. If you look closely at the window all the pillows have been moved slightly, with the pillow on the right now partially covered by the drape. (01:03:25)

????

Continuity mistake: Hutch calls wanting to speak to Rosemary who's lying down on the right side of the bed. Guy brings in the phone and places it on the bed for her. When he puts it down the blanket on the left side is perfectly smoothed and tucked in but when he takes the phone back from her the blanket is messed up, and she hasn't gone near that side of the bed. (01:08:30)

????

Continuity mistake: Rosemary feels ill and walks into the bedroom during the Scrabble game. Guy doesn't move from his spot but when she walks back in a small yellow sculpture of a bird appears on the table to the right of the screen. (01:00:50)

????

Continuity mistake: Rosemary asks Guy if he would like to have some coffee with her and Hutch and proceeds to pour him a cup. In the next shot the coffee is already on the table. (01:06:10)

????

Continuity mistake: Roman walks into the living room and Hutch is sitting on the couch. He doesn't move from his spot but just about everything on and around Hutch moves, but most noticeable are the three ottomans around the coffee table. (01:03:20)

????

Continuity mistake: Hutch and Roman talk about vitamins and Dr. Sapirstein in Rosemary's living room. Look at the brown chair to the right of the window, it's obvious someone's been sitting in it as the back is all ruffled up. In the previous shot before Roman walks into the room it's not. (01:04:15)

????

Continuity mistake: The phone rings while Rosemary straightens up the living room. Guy answers it and after the conversation they both go back into living room. No one has gone near them but the pillow on the left of the window and the magazine rack below it have been moved. In fact they move three different times. (00:33:35 - 00:35:05)

????

Continuity mistake: Rosemary tries Minnie's mousse and the pillow against the window and the curtain above it move during the scene without anyone going near them. (00:39:40)

????

Continuity mistake: Guy answers the phone and gets shocking news about Donald Baumgart. If you look closely at their bed it's been moved about one foot to the right in relation to the radiator behind it. We saw it several shots before as Rosemary says, "Tannis, anyone?". (00:33:50)

????

Continuity mistake: Rosemary doesn't want to wear the necklace that Minnie gave her so she puts it in a drawer in her dresser as she says, "Tannis anyone?". When she walks up to the dresser there's a red handbag on the right of it that's not there in the close-up shot as she looks in the mirror. (00:33:15)

????

Continuity mistake: Their phone rings while Rosemary is straightening up the living room. Guy answers it and we see that the lamp shade on Rosemary's dresser has been changed. A few shots earlier we saw the same spot when she says "Tannis, anyone?" and the lamp shade was larger. (00:33:40)

????

Continuity mistake: Rosemary doesn't like Minnie's mousse, she says it has a "chalky under taste" but Guy insists and shames her into eating it and the salt and pepper shaker which were previously in front of and in between the vase have now been moved behind and to the left of it. (00:40:30)

????

Continuity mistake: Rosemary and Guy are interrupted on their romantic evening together by Minnie Castevet knocking at the door. Guy gets up to answer it and we see his two glasses, the smaller one filled with wine and a larger one filled with water placed right next to the candle. Two shots later when he returns, the glass of wine has been moved to the right and the candle has been removed. (00:38:30)

????

Continuity mistake: Rosemary gets sick from the mousse and Guy brings her into the bedroom. Several things have been rearranged since the last time we saw it. The lamp on top of the shelf has been removed and we see a different lamp on the end table and the bed now has a head board behind it. (00:34:10 - 00:42:00)

????

Continuity mistake: Rosemary and Guy play Scrabble on a rainy day. They're sitting on the rug and Rosemary has both her hands touching the center of the red tile holder. In the next shot her hands are on the left of the tile holder. (01:00:05)

????

Continuity mistake: The cake that Minnie serves after dinner is cut into six pieces. Rosemary and Guy each get a large peace and Minnie also eats a large piece, but if you look at the cake dish half of it is untouched but there's still an extra large piece lying there. (00:27:20)

????

Continuity mistake: Guy is lying down on the sofa as Rosemary shows him the necklace with the tannis root inside. His right ankle is leaning over the edge of the sofa right next to the lamp. Two shots later Guy says, "Well if you took it you ought to wear it" and the lamp has been moved a foot to the left of his ankle. (00:32:50)

????

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)

More quotes from Rosemary's Baby

Trivia: The director, Roman Polanski, started the trend of an actor walking into a room and then going to the left, or right, and disappearing behind a wall and the audience when they first saw this shifted to their right, or left, so they could see around the corner. I don't think the director expected this but it did happen.

Question: What is the name of the melody that Mia Farrow sings (La La La Laaaa, La La La Lalala La Laaaaa) at the beginning of the movie, as the title/credits are being displayed?

Shipper

Chosen answer: It doesn't have a specific title. It was a lullaby written for the film by Krzysztof Komeda. There's a few variations of the lullaby heard throughout the film, the opening credits version is listed as "Rosemary's Baby Main Theme - Vocal."
