Hard Day's Night

Factual error: They're meant to be taping a TV show, but some of the cameras were motion picture cameras used for shooting the movie, rather than TV cameras. (01:16:45)

????

Factual error: After the TV producer talks to Norm and Shake, three Beatles (minus Ringo) appear singing the theme song of the movie "A Hard Day's Night". Not only are their lips not moving, but they couldn't possibly have been playing "A Hard Day's Night" because it wasn't written until after the movie was completed. (01:05:45)

????

Factual error: When they sing "I Should Have Known Better" look at Paul's left wrist - he's wearing a metal ID bracelet. Anyone who plays guitar knows that they jangle against the strings. He makes sure in any real live performances that it is tucked up in his sleeve away from the strings. (00:13:40 - 00:34:20)

Continuity mistake: There is a scene in the movie where the Beatles enter a limousine, I believe at the beginning of the movie. In this particular scene the Beatles are all dressed in suits and ties, but when the Beatles are filmed in the limo, John Lennon is wearing a turtle neck sweater beneath a blazer.

Norm: Leave him alone, Lennon... or I'll tell them all the truth about you.
John: You wouldn't.
Norm: Oh, I would, though.

Question: During the scene where John has the conversation with the woman in the corridor, what does she mean when she says, "I knew I could rely on you", have they met before?

Chosen answer: No, she has not met Lennon before, and she's unsure if it is really him. The whole conversation is written so that their bantering does not make any real sense, and it humorously depicts how famous people are sometimes perceived by the non-famous. Basically, the woman doesn't know what she is talking about but wants to sound like she does.
