Continuity mistake: When they reach the study with the dead cook's body, they stop before entering and drop her half-way into the room. They proceed to look for Mr. Boddy in the room and file into the Study one at a time. In the same camera angle you see everyone entering the study including Miss Scarlet, then Yvette, then Mrs. White. Then the camera angle changes and in comes Scarlet, White and then Yvette.

Suggested correction: She was shot, not switched off. She likely didn't die instantly. It's perfectly reasonable that she would move her arm as she was dying.

She died instantly, that is why she collapsed instantly. I am still wondering why they didn't make it look like a real shot, and have blood around the area she was shot at? They made it look as though she was wearing a bulletproof vest and was shot. You can see silver, no blood.

Revealing mistake: When the cook's body is lowered to the kitchen floor, you can see her move her outstretched arm closer to her head.

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.
