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.
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.
