Plot hole: Near the end when Wadsworth is revealing Whodunnit, he re-enacts the whole evening, when he re-enacts running into the billiard room when Yvette was screaming he says one person was never in the billiard room and that person the person who killed the Cook and when he re-enacted the scene in the kitchen when the Cook was found dead, he says one person wasn't in the kitchen because that person killed Mr. Boddy with the candlestick. But they were only ever in the kitchen and the billiard room once, so that was the only ever time Wadsworth could have realised the murderer wasn't in the kitchen or billiard room. So how come Wadsworth only realised Whodunnit until the end of the film? (00:28:30 - 01:08:05)Casual Person
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!
