Mommie Dearest

Continuity mistake: When Mommie is cutting Christina's hair it keeps on changing from long to short several times.

Continuity mistake: When Joan is standing in the New York apartment while it's being renovated, from the back angle she's gesturing widely with her arms. But when it cuts to the front angle, her hands are down against her stomach.


Continuity mistake: Before Joan discovers the wire hanger, she goes through a group of blue clothes (Christopher's) and then turns to Christina's pink clothes. However, when she is yelling, we see that there are now pink clothes on both sides, with no blue in the closet. She then begins to throw the clothes off their hangers, and Christopher's clothes are back.

Continuity mistake: When Christina sees her baby dolls are missing she goes into Mommie's room. When she first walks in you see Mommie rolling up her sleeves in the mirror's reflection, but in Mommie's face-on shot, her sleeves are rolled down, which she then rolls up and puts cream on her elbows.

Continuity mistake: When Joan Crawford insists the bathroom isn't clean, she throws a rag on the floor for Christina to use and is then seen holding both rags while sprinkling Old Dutch Cleaner on the floor. In the close up of the same action, Christina has produced one of the rags from her right hand.

Factual error: When Christina mixes a drink for one of Mommie's "guests" she bends down behind the bar to put a bottle back. Sitting on top of the bar is a Trigger Sprayer bottle of "Fantastick" - a spray that did not come out until the late 60's.
