Continuity mistake: In the scene in which Colonel Landa and Shosanna are talking in the cafe, Landa orders an espresso for himself, along with a glass of milk for Shosanna and two strudels. When the order arrives on a tray, the cup of espresso is seen briefly in one shot. The film then cuts to a close-up of the tray, and the espresso has disappeared, despite no-one having put it down. In the next shot of the table, the espresso has appeared beside Landa. (00:50:05)blackrain
Continuity mistake: In the Operation Kino briefing scene, in the shot where General Fenech and Lt. Hicox drink to "down with Hitler", Fenech is holding his staff in his left hand along with his blue file folder.

Continuity mistake: In the tavern scene, when the SS officer tells Lt. Hickox that he is no more German than the scotch they are drinking, Hickox is sitting back against the back of his chair. In the following shot, which shows Eric the bartender slowly reaching for his shotgun, Hickox can be seen in the background leaning forward in his chair. In the next shot, Hickox is suddenly once again sitting back in his chair as he was before. It is implausible that Hickox would have or even could have changed seating positions so quickly or abruptly.s4bio
Continuity mistake: When Hugo Stieglitz is threatening the balls of the SS officer in the bar, his hand with the pistol is under the arms of the officer. In the next scene, when he is shooting, it is suddenly above the arms of the officer.
Continuity mistake: When Donowitz and Ulmer walk into the theater, they see Joseph Goebbels and his mistress in the box above them, to their right. They would be looking to their right to watch the movie. Later, during the movie, Goebbels, Hitler, the mistress and Zoller are looking to their left to watch the movie, so they would have to be in the box on the opposite side of the theater, where Martin Bormann was shown.Jets Fan
