Video

Visible crew/equipment: When the anxious Benjamin takes Elaine on their first date (against Mrs. Robinson's wishes), he's driving his convertible Alfa Romeo fast and a bit recklessly on the crowded freeway. This brief nighttime scene is one continuous "backseat" shot from behind Ben and Elaine, looking out of the car's front windscreen. As the lighting shifts erratically, the distinct shadow of the camera and audio rigs with vertical cables repeatedly moves left and right across the entire shot for the duration of the scene. (00:58:09)

Continuity mistake: When Benjamin is running up the stairs of his rooming house with a stack of presents and a big bouquet of flowers, the flowers are pointing down held by his left hand with the presents in front of him. When he rounds the corner of the stairs, the flowers are upright in front of both him and the presents.
