Suggested correction: If Mrs. White was indeed the killer, she could have followed Yvette, then gone into the room where they meet before her. The screaming has stopped before Yvette actually gets inside the room.

That would be impossible. There is no way that Mrs. White could have murdered Yvette because Yvette is seen running down the stairs while Mrs. White is still heard screaming upstairs. Add to the fact that the power to the house had been shut off leaving it in complete darkness, Mrs. White had no way of seeing where she was going and would most likely keep bumping into things. Plus, when Yvette gets to the billiard room, the murderer is already inside waiting for her.

Suggested correction: Mrs. White is not screaming when Yvette is walking into the room (where she is killed) only while Yvette is running down the stairs. Yvette pauses for a brief moment to look into the dining room, then proceeds to the billiard room. There are many secret passageways in the home, and one upstairs could have led into the billiard-room.

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.

Continuity mistake: When Professor Plumb picks up Ms Scarlett on the roadside, they drive away in his black car. Moments later they arrive at the mansion in her scarlet colored car.

Suggested correction: First, Professor Plum doesn't have a black car. But you can tell that's it's Plum's car when they arrive because of the paneling and the rooftop. And it's not red, it's purplish (a plum color).

Continuity mistake: When everyone is in the Library, you can see the matches in a cup on the left of the fireplace. When Professor Plum says, "Wait a minute, suppose that one of us is the murderer," you can also see that the matches are in a "V" shape. When Wadsworth walks towards them to pull the matches out, most of them are all leaning to the left side of the cup. As the movie goes on, when the cop gets locked up in the Library for the second time, the same amount of matches are in the holding cup as if Wadsworth did not pull them out and they are in a straight line. (Third time code 1:02:40). (00:44:25 - 00:45:05)

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.
