Laughter on the 23rd Floor

Continuity mistake: When Max punches a hole in the wall after hearing about General MacArthur being called a commie, the hole in the wall changes height and size as the camera angle switches back to him from showing the reaction of his writers.


Continuity mistake: When Ira walks into the office, he walks past Carol and she is sitting down holding a magazine. The camera angle changes to a wide view and she is now seen reaching over the table to fold back a newspaper that another writer is reading.


Continuity mistake: When Carol comes back from lunch she walks over to the coat rack and reaches for a coat hanger. The camera angle changes to the opposite side of the room and you can hear the sound of the coat hanger being removed from the rack. The camera angle pans back to her and she is seen reaching for the coat hanger again and pulling it off the rack with the same sound.
