Arthur

Other mistake: When Arthur is in the bath tub, Hobson brings him a martini on a tray. Arthur grabs the glass. It shoots over to Hobson then back to Arthur and he picks up the glass again without even putting it down.

Continuity mistake: Arthur and Hobson run outside to watch Linda after she steals a tie. Hobson is holding a bag with a box in it. Later in the scene, when Arthur is putting Linda in his limo, he hands her the box. Two problems. First, we never see the box being taken out of the bag. And second, the box presumably contains Arthur's purchases. Why would he give it to her? In the next scene, Linda's father opens the box, and it contains the stolen tie.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Linda is in the car with Bitterman, she says, "Oh, here comes Mrs. Nezbeth..." While she is saying that in that shot, she turns around and looks out the rear window of the car. In the next couple of shots, outside of the car, Mrs. Nezbeth is coming from the opposite direction Linda looked.

Trivia: John Belushi was the first choice to play Arthur. Belushi thought the script was excellent but he turned down the role as he had already played a hard-drinking guy in ‘Animal House', and feared being typecast as a substance abuser.

Arthur: Yeah, but she'd have to be a real BIG woman!

Arthur: Hobson, did you see that?! That girl stole that tie!
Hobson: Yes...
Arthur: It's the perfect crime: girls don't wear ties...well it's not a perfect crime, but it's a pretty good crime...
Hobson: Perhaps if she had murdered the tie it would be a perfect crime.

Arthur: Bathing is a lonely business. Except for fish, fish all bathe together. Although they do tend to eat one another.
