Hello Dolly!

Continuity mistake: When Cornelius meets the girl in the red dress and they dance and sing outdoors on the street, her dress is dragging on the pavement and the hem is clearly filthy. The next scene they arrive at the restaurant and her dress is clean and pressed.

Continuity mistake: During "Put on Your Sunday Clothes" as the men dance downhill the camera sweeps across the lake and a roadway with cars is visible. (00:33:07)

Factual error: In the original theatrical release print of this film, set in the 1890s, there is an overhead shot of a train travelling through the countryside from Yonkers to New York City. As the camera follows the train, an overturned 1950s-60s automobile in a ditch beside the track comes into view. The offending vehicle has been edited out of the video release.

Trivia: Three costumes were made for Streisand for the "Hello Dolly" number at the Harmonia Gardens. They are identical except for the length of the train. As she enters she has the dress with the full train. During the number the train "shortens" twice to enable the dance steps, particularly the backsteps, to be performed and for the last few bars she is back to the full train original dress.
