What's Up, Doc?

Continuity mistake: At the airport Howard stands in front of a departure sign that says local time is 11:08, yet just a few minutes later Eunice tells Mr. Larabee that it's 12:05.

Continuity mistake: When Bannister is first shown in the ending scene aboard the TWA plane there is no seat in front of him.

Continuity mistake: Bannister's name tag shifts position onto and off his lapel during the Larabee banquet.

Continuity mistake: When the reporter leaves the airport terminal with the document bag he gets into a Yellow Cab number 710, with no billboard on the back. When he exits it is still 710, but there is a billboard on the back of the cab.

Continuity mistake: During the chase scene the sun visors on the stolen VolksWagon are visible in some scenes and apparently removed in others.

Continuity mistake: During the chase scene the sheet of "glass" carried by the workers is too flexible, and is probably a sheet of plastic. The sheet that breaks is not the same sheet that is set down on the sidewalk; the (white) worker's upper suction cup is on the ladder side, but when the sheet is broken it is on the opposite side.

Continuity mistake: When Judy Maxwell approaches the front desk near the start of the movie, signs above where the room keys are kept indicate that the hotel only has 19 floors, with most of the film's action taking place on the 17th. However, when Howard gets in the elevator the next morning (after the visit from Kaltenborn), the elevator starts at floor 31, going up to floor 33 or so before coming out on the unfinished roof restaurant.

Eunice: I'm not looking for romance, Howard.
Howard: Oh?
Eunice: No, I'm looking for something more important than that, something stronger. As the years go by, romance fades and something else takes its place. Do you know what that is?
Howard: Senility?
Eunice: Trust.
Howard: That's what I meant.



In the early part of the chase scene, when the person hanging the banner swings into the pane of glass, you can actually see it start to shatter before he touches it.



In addition to Ryan O'Neal appearing in this film we also see his brother Kevin O'Neal (delivery boy), and his mother Patricia O'Neal (woman on plane).
