Phantom of the Paradise

Continuity mistake: When evil Swan hands the contract to the Swan who's about to kill himself, Swan grabs the contract out of E.S hands, yet in the next shot, E.S is still holding it.

Other mistake: Swan visibly misses the Phantom's finger when he stabs it to draw blood for his contract.

Trivia: Sissy Spacek was the film's set dresser.

Swan: Here's the contract. Everything I've said and more is in it.
The Phantom: I'll read it.
Swan: At your leisure.
The Phantom: "The party of the first part gives the party of the second part and his associates full power to do with him at their pleasure. To rule, to send, to fetch, or carry him or his, be it either body, soul, flesh, blood or goods." What does that mean?
Swan: That's a transportation clause.

Swan: Phoenix, Swan here. I want you to answer a question for me.
Phoenix: Yes.
Swan: What would you give me to sing?
Phoenix: Anything you want.
Swan: Anything? Would you give me your voice?
Phoenix: Try me.

Beef: Listen, Philbin. There really is a phantom. He was just in my shower. He threatened my life. He said his music was just for Phoenix. Only she can sing it. Anyone else who tries, dies.
Arnold Philbin: What the hell are you talking about?
Beef: Look, Philbin. I am a professional. I have been in this business a long time. Now if I don't want to do a show, it's not because I got stage fright. It's because some creature from beyond doesn't want me to do the show. Now gangway.
