42nd Street

Continuity mistake: While Peggy's singing "42nd Street" for the show's premiere, she suddenly goes from tap-dancing on stage to being on top of a car's roof right in the middle of her performance. (01:24:01)

Visible crew/equipment: During "Shuffle Off to Buffalo" the camera tracks backwards as the set of a train opens. The track the camera is sitting on is blatantly obvious on the bottom of the screen.

Suggested correction: This brilliant shot is not photographed by a camera on a track but on an overhead crane (in order to clear the orchestra pit) so there are no tracks visible.

Character mistake: During the music number "Shuffle Off To Buffalo", two females are singing about the main couple while eating. The character on the right starts singing about the male having a shotgun to his "belly." She is supposed to say "tummy" and quickly corrects herself.

Loraine: You remember Anne Lowell?
Andy Lee: Not Anytime Annie? Say, who could forget 'er? She only said "No" once, and then she didn't hear the question.
