Continuity mistake: At dinner with Hutch, Rosemary sits at her place at the table and we see a plate on the bookshelf behind her. The plate is on the bottom left shelf, close to the center, but later in the scene as they are eating the plate has moved about six inches to the left. The books on the right side of the bookshelf are also rearranged throughout this scene. (00:07:25)

Continuity mistake: Rosemary is using a yardstick to draw a line on a piece of paper as Guy walks in and tells her that Donald Baumgart got the part in the play that he was hoping for. She goes into the kitchen to get him a beer and returns to what she was doing and everything has been moved without anyone going near it. Most notable is the book rack and the piece of foam to the left of her. (00:22:30)

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".

Question: Was Dr. Hill a witch?

????

Chosen answer: No, Dr. Hill was not a Satan worshiper. He was just Rosemary's first obstetrician, referred to her by a friend. However, her neighbors, the Castevettes, later convince her to instead go to their friend, Dr. Abe Sapperstein, who is a warlock.
