Deliberate mistake: The barber is on the roof scarping from the stormtroopers and he falls down face through a window. When the shot changes to the inside of the house where the window is, he is falling on his back.

Deliberate mistake: When Chaplin's plane turns upside down, he falls off but grabs himself to a stick. On a wide shot you see him facing to the back of the plane. In the closer shot he is facing 90ยบ to its left, probably to allow for the dialogue scene between him and the officer.

Deliberate mistake: When Hannah is lying on the floor there's a mild breeze blowing, causing the flowers and her hair to move. Seconds before the movie ends, Hannah hears Chaplin's words and looks around. Although the flowers in the back keep moving, her hair is still for several seconds until the camera comes closer to her. Then the music starts in crescendo and her hair comes to life again, which makes a more dramatic ending.
