Foul Play

Plot hole: When the albino kidnaps Gloria in the middle of the day, he is looking for the film obviously. So he would have checked her purse for it because that's where it most likely would be if she'd had it with her. But if he did check her purse, he would have seen all that "equipment" from Stella in there. But Gloria still has it when she comes to consciousness. What kidnapper would leave weapons in her reach? (00:48:35 - 00:50:05)

Plot hole: When Gloria picks up Scotty on the road towards the beginning of the movie, they are being followed by the black car. But if Scotty had been being followed, the car would have easily caught up to him when his car broke down. (00:09:20)

Audio problem: The scene in Dudley Moore's apartment was longer than the song, "Stayin' Alive" that is playing on his stereo so the song is substantially longer by looping and replaying portions of the song. (00:30:20 - 00:36:00)

Tony Carlson: I think we got off on the wrong foot.
Gloria Mundy: Yes, and it seems to be in your mouth.
Tony Carlson: OK, I deserve that. Listen, it's Gloria, right? You're a really nice girl and I'm a nice guy, and you're very pretty with or without cleavage, and what do you say... would you like to take a shower?
Gloria Mundy: I don't pick up strange men.
Tony Carlson: Well, that's your problem.
Gloria Mundy: So why don't you try it?
