Desk Set

Continuity mistake: Bunny Watson and Mike Cutler talk about Cutler's promotion to vice president in Watson's office. Maps are displayed on the wall of Watson's office. When Mike says "Sumner, of course. Who else?" the map in the background is South America. In preceding and succeeding shots, the map is of Central America.

Revealing mistake: In the opening shot of the film, at Rockefeller Center, the shot begins at ground level and tilts up the building, but it was shot from the top of the building down to ground level and then reversed - all the people on the ground are walking backwards.
