The Ninth Gate

Revealing mistake: When Corso is being pushed through the floorboards (into his proper niche) we can see for a good second or two that it is certainly not Johnny Depp. (The stunt-double is Dominique Fouassier). (01:59:25)

Revealing mistake: During the fight scene on the riverbank when the white haired man lands on the pavement, the "concrete" pavement moves.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where the man in the suit and the woman wearing all black are fighting, if you look closely you can see the string used to pull the podium holding the book.

Boris Balkan: Look around you, all of you, what do you see? A bunch of buffoons, in fancy dress. You think the prince of Darkness would actually deign to manifest himself before the likes of you? He never has and he never will. Never.

Question: Does "the girl" - as she's been called - have a name? And is she a (or the) devil?

Answer: She was not given a name, neither in the film nor credits. She is simply known as "The Girl". As to precisely who she is, it is deliberately left ambiguous. But the last engraving found by Corso does seem to indicate that she is the Whore of Babylon mentioned in the Book of Revelation.
