Rosemary's Baby

Continuity mistake: When Rosemary is playing Scrabble the angle of the shadow of her head on her collar changes between shots. (01:29:00)

????

Audio problem: As they walk together, Rosemary has a talk with Hutch about Guy's new part and she says, "suddenly he's hot" but it comes out as "suddenly he's hopt". The close captioning also reads "hot". (00:35:35)

????

Continuity mistake: After she sees the baby, Roman says to Rosemary, "His power is stronger than strongerÂ…" and the clock on the back wall reads 8:20. Two shots later we see Laura-Louise's wrist watch and it reads 6:07. (02:10:55)

????

Audio problem: After the party Rosemary tells Guy that she wants to go to Dr. Hill for a second opinion but explains that she doesn't want to change doctors. Guy says, "I won't let you do it Ro", but if you listen closely to what he's actually saying he calls her "Rome". (01:21:25)

????

Audio problem: Guy who is watching TV says, "It's the Pope at Yankee Stadium" and if you look at his lips he's saying something else. (00:40:55)

????

Visible crew/equipment: As they discuss going over to the Castevet's for dinner Rosemary says, "No, we don't have to go if you don't want to" as Guy eats. You can see the shadow of a crew member move in the center of the screen on the wall behind him. (00:24:05)

????

Visible crew/equipment: Minnie and Laura-Louise walk into Rosemary's living room and you can see the shadow of the cameraman on the wall to the right of the screen. (00:31:20)

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 takes a walk with Hutch and he says, "I say, you had another suicide at happy house". Maurice Evans is British and says, "I say" but the transcriber makes a mistake and the closed captioning reads, "I see". (00:36:10)

????

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)

????

Edward "Hutch" Hutchins: I see you had another suicide up there at, uh, Happy House.

Trivia: The bystanders looking at the camera when Rosemary crosses the street were staring in disbelief as Mia Farrow actually wandered out into oncoming traffic! Polanski did not want to "stage" the scene, so she was literally risking her life.

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.
