The Color of Money

Continuity mistake: At the very start of the tournament, when we see all the platters break at the same time (wide shot showing all tables), we see Eddie's table is second from the left and three tables up. Notice the referee one table behind Eddie. In the close shot after the break, we now see that the referee, who was standing still in the wide shot, is now a table further down.


Continuity mistake: Eddie tells Vince and Carmen that they should go it alone to Atlantic City but Vince and Carmen try to reason with Eddie in the stairs leading up to the pool hall. Eventually, Vince gives in and then demands money from Eddie. However, Vince then decides he no longer wants the money and so rips the hand rail off the wall and then goes back up to the pool hall, leaving Carmen and Eddie in the stairway.When Vince leaves you can see that the hand rail is lying on the floor but when Carmen finally accepts money from Eddie you can see that the hand rail is attached to the wall again. (01:21:45 - 01:22:45)


Continuity mistake: When Eddie talks to Carmen in the motel room, Carmen looks at Eddie to talk him, but when the scene cuts, she is suddenly watching the television. Since it's a straight cut, there is no time for her to move her head. (00:51:25)

Eddie Felson: Do you smell that?
Vincent Lauria: What, smoke?
Carmen: No, Money.



Cruise is breaking and if you watch the eight ball after the break it's following the 5 into a pocket at the end of the table closest to Tom. Now the 8 ball didn't necessarily go in because they focus on the one ball, but in the next frame shot, there's no way it could be at the opposite end of the table like they show.



In one scene, Eddie comments that it's been 25 years since he played pool professionally. Paul Newman last played Felson in The Hustler, 25 years earlier.
