Continuity mistake: Benjamin says to Mrs. Robinson, "I'm going home now, I apologize for what I said" as he walks out of Elaine's room. In the next shot as Mrs. Robinson walks out, if you look very closely everything on the three shelves to the left and right of Elaine's picture has been rearranged. (00:15:00)????
Continuity mistake: As Benjamin approaches their house, Mrs. Robinson gets into the car and threatens to tell Elaine about their affair. Benjamin gets out of his car in the pouring rain and runs to the Robinson house and if you look closely he runs out from under the rain making machine about thirty feet from the car. (01:08:50)????
Continuity mistake: Benjamin pulls a cross off the window of the church and uses it to lock the people inside the church. If you look closely when we see the church from the outside the cross is not there and before he pulls it off the window there's a curtain in front of it, which disappears between shots. (01:43:15)????
Continuity mistake: In the last shot of Benjamin and Elaine inside the bus he's facing forward and she's sitting slightly to the right of the center window divider on the back of the bus. In the next shot he's sitting sideways with his arm resting on the top of the back seat and she's moved about eight inches to the right. (01:44:45)????
Continuity mistake: When Benjamin is in his apartment, there is a Coors can on top of the refrigerator. When the camera comes back to the refrigerator, the can is gone.
Continuity mistake: After Mrs. Robinson corners him in Elaine's room, Benjamin runs down stairs and picks up his drink just before Mr. Robinson walks through the front door. When we saw the drink earlier as he put it down just before they went up to see Elaine's picture, it was half full, now it's empty with a few ice cubes in it. (00:16:40)????
Audio problem: When they play the "Sounds Of Silence" and get to the verse "And the people bowed and prayed", "and the people" was left off of the closed captioning. In the verse "And the sign flashed out its warning", "and the sign flashed out" is left off. In fact half of the song is left out. (00:40:10)????
Continuity mistake: Mr. Robinson sits in Benjamin's apartment waiting for him by the window as he smokes a cigar. In the first shot of this scene the cigar is lit, he never puts it out but several seconds later we see it again and it isn't. Then in the shot after that we see smoke blowing through the air as we look at Benjamin face. (01:31:30)????
Revealing mistake: After he bangs on the second floor church window, Elaine screams his name and Benjamin runs down the steps to the main floor of the church. Mr. Robinson meets him halfway down as they fight and if you look closely Benjamin's white windbreaker was made to just fall apart as Mr. Robinson tugs on it. (01:43:00)????
