Clue

Audio problem: In the first ending, when it's revealed Miss Scarlet murdered four of the six people in Hill House, Colonel Mustard tells Miss Scarlet he has no more money when she wants to blackmail the guests. The other guests reply that they don't have any money either, but look closely at Professor Plum. Although Plum answers "Nor I" to Miss Scarlet, his lips are closed and don't move.

Casual Person

Revealing mistake: When the 4 people upstairs, Yvette, Mr Green, the butler, and Mrs White all come running downstairs because Col Mustard and Mrs Scarlet are yelling at the locked door they collide at the top of the stairs. When they all hit they're stunt men and women. (00:54:15)

Continuity mistake: When Wadsworth re-enacts the evening, he stabs a piece of meat to re-enact the Cook being stabbed. When he stabs the piece of meat, the knife is at a 90 degree angle. In the next shot, it's in a different angle. (01:08:30)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: Miss Scarlet moves to a table to open her unexpected gift. When she says "I enjoy getting presents from strange men", if you look close enough, she goes to remove the box's ribbon twice. (00:24:45)

Casual Person

Other mistake: When everyone finds the Cop's dead body, there is a wound showing were the murderer hit him on the head with the pipe, however, the pipe shows there is no blood. (01:04:30)

Casual Person

Audio problem: During the re-enactment, at the point when Wadsworth slaps Mrs. Peacock, the slap doesn't touch her, but you still hear it and she still reacts. (01:07:55)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: Before Mr. Boddy turns out the lights, there is a statue a few inches below and away from the switch. However when Mrs. Peacock turns the lights back on, the statue is directly under the switch. (00:26:25)

Casual Person

Deliberate mistake: When the chandelier smashes after Colonel Mustard and Miss Scarlet are freed from the lounge and at the end of the first ending, the light level doesn't even go down. (00:53:15 - 01:20:30)

Casual Person

Deliberate mistake: Wadsworth was explaining how Miss Scarlet killed the cop. It then showed her killing him. You can see that she stopped the lead pipe behind his head so it wouldn't show a violent and bloody death.

Continuity mistake: When Wadsworth is doing the re-enactment of the murderer killing Mr. Boddy with the candle stick, he pretends to hit Mr. Green. After he says "Will you stop that?!", Wadsworth grabs him with one hand. But when he throws Mr. Green into the toilet, he is holding him with two hands. (01:11:25)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When the Cook's body falls out of the freezer on Mr. Green, he is pushed onto the floor. In the next shot, he is standing back up again. (00:33:20)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When the 1st chandelier fell, we see Peacock and White are standing near the front door. Scarlet then says "look!" Bringing everyone to look at the dead motorist in the study. Peacock and White are suddenly teleported to the study door behind Scarlet, even though they were quite far away with even a couple steps to climb down.

Continuity mistake: In one scene, Wadsworth is throwing the key to the weapon cabinet, but in ending A, it is told that Miss Scarlet opened it.

Suggested correction: Wadsworth explains that while they were all in a huddle somebody could've easily removed the key from his pocket and substituted another. He assumes when he threw the key away, it was actually a different key.

Jason Hoffman

Continuity mistake: In the beginning when Col Mustard shows up, the butler shows him to the library, you can see that door to the library is open. When the scene shifts Wadsworth is opening the door. (00:05:30)

Visible crew/equipment: When the cop is driving past the broken down vehicle, a crew member's arm can be seen reflected on the car. (00:49:35)

Casual Person

Revealing mistake: Just before the chandelier falls, Col. Mustard quite visibly flinches, even though, realistically, he would have no way of knowing that it was about to crash behind him.

Wadsworth: The game's up, Scarlet. There are no more bullets left in that gun.
Miss Scarlet: Oh come on, you don't think I'm going to fall for that old trick.
Wadsworth: It's not a trick. There was one shot at Mr. Boddy in the study, two at the chandelier, two at the lounge door, and one at the singing telegram.
Miss Scarlet: That's not six.
Wadsworth: One plus two plus two plus one.
Miss Scarlet: Uh-uh. There was only one shot that got the chandelier, so that's one plus two plus ONE plus one.
Wadsworth: Even if you were right, that would be one plus one plus two plus one, not one plus two plus one plus one.
Miss Scarlet: Okay, fine. One plus two plus one...SHUT UP! Point is, there's one bullet left in this gun, and guess who's going to get it!

Trivia: Not a mistake, just a neat little fact. When the film was being shown at cinemas, only one ending was shown. Different venues had different endings.

Question: When Yvette goes to meet Miss Scarlet/Mrs. White when the electricity is off, she loses her French accent. Does this mean she was faking the accent the entire time? If so, why?

Answer: Yes, the accent was fake. She wasn't a French maid, she was a prostitute who used to work for Miss Scarlett. She was hired by Mr. Boddy.
