Corrected entry: When Luther and Alma are eating chicken noodle soup together in the restaurant, Alma's boyfriend comes in and begins making fun of Luther. He gets angry and storms out, telling the cashier to put the bill on his tab. She replies that he doesn't have a tab, and he begins to feverishly dig for money in his pocket. If you watch as the scene begins to fade out, Don Knotts stops searching for the money and acts calm really quick, like the director just yelled "cut".

Correction: I have observed this scene many times, and as the scene ends, Knotts' hand is dug deep into his pocket, and he approaches Ollie and Alma as if to sheepishly ask for some cash to cover the cost of his and Alma's meal.


Continuity mistake: When Mrs. Maxwell, the head of the "Occult Society", is arguing with her husband Milo, watch her dish of tapioca. In the first shot, a profile shot, the dish is full. When the shot switches to a head-on shot, the dish is nearly empty. In the next profile shot, the dish is once again full and she's just then taking her first bite.

Trivia: The paintings of Mrs. Simmons are actually two different women. Don't know who the first one is (the one with the shears and blood), but the second one, when Luther brings everyone with him to the mansion, is actually taken from a painting of a mother and daughter entitled "Mrs. Fiske Warren and her daughter Rachel."
