Revealing mistake: During "Many a New Day", when Laurie sings "many a red sun will set" and before they all hear the Cummings girl laugh outside, Laurie and two others are looking into a mirror. The actresses are actually looking into the camera through a mirror frame, to give the illusion that we are seeing their reflections. When the girl with the long black hair joins them, you see her run in from the side, then her "reflection" in the mirror. However, if it was a real mirror, you wouldn't see her run in from the side.
