Revealing mistake: A visible editing flaw occurs near the beginning, after they return from the Billiard Room with Yvette. While Mrs. White is saying her line to Wadsworth, "I think you had better explain," she starts to unbutton her overcoat.

Everyone is paused on their marks as if the film was spliced at the exact moment the director yelled, "Action" and no one had moved yet. (00:31:12)
