Hard Day's Night

Revealing mistake: In their hotel room Ringo says, "Do I snore, John?" If you look at Paul's hands on the piano it's obvious that he's not playing and that it's an over-dub that we are listening to. (00:17:30)

Revealing mistake: Ringo meets up with a young boy while he's out 'parading' who says, "I'm a deserter" after Ringo inquires about why he's not in school. As the boy says this line there's an out of focus close-up of Ringo. (01:02:20)

Revealing mistake: As Paul sings, "And I Love Her" there's a close-up shot of Ringo playing his bongos. The only problem is there are no bongos in this part of the song. (00:49:05)

Revealing mistake: John takes a pair of scissors and cuts the tailor's tape measure as he says, "I now declare this bridge open". Everyone else has left the room but the tailor winks at someone off camera. (00:47:10)

Continuity mistake: While looking for the canteen, George inadvertently wanders into a production office. The receptionist takes George in to see Simon, who believes George is there to audition for a testimonial for those "dead grotty" shirts.

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.
