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.

During the rosebush/tree chopping scene, Faye Dunaway is chopping the tree, except when you see the close up. During the close up (when the tree falls), it is actually the films director Frank Perry chopping the tree.
