Continuity mistake: When everyone is in the Library, you can see the matches in a cup on the left of the fireplace. When Professor Plum says, "Wait a minute, suppose that one of us is the murderer," you can also see that the matches are in a "V" shape. When Wadsworth walks towards them to pull the matches out, most of them are all leaning to the left side of the cup. As the movie goes on, when the cop gets locked up in the Library for the second time, the same amount of matches are in the holding cup as if Wadsworth did not pull them out and they are in a straight line. (Third time code 1:02:40).

Continuity mistake: After Mrs Peacock turns the lights back on in the study, she drops the dagger where she is standing, by the door. A few moments later when she is screaming about the 'poisoned' brandy, the dagger is no longer there. That area of the floor can be viewed as Mr Green is calming her down and the dagger is nowhere to be seen. This is explained in one ending, as Yvette crept in and stole the dagger in between time. However using the real ending (i.e. the one where the title card reads 'Here's how it REALLY happened') then this is a massive goof, particularly as Mrs Peacock is supposed to kill the cook with the dagger in a few moments time.
