The Big Sleep

Revealing mistake: A car is driven off a dock into a body of water. Before the car hits the water, special effects shoot up about 10 different blasts of water.

Continuity mistake: When the taxi driver sets off in pursuit of the white truck, only the driver is seen at the wheel and Robert Mitchum is not sitting in the back. In the next shot of the taxi, Robert is seen in the back of the taxi.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Mitchum wrestles over a gun with Collins, she incurs a narrow run in her stockings. After cutting away for a short time, the character Agnes is fretting over a horrendous tear at her knee that has completely shred upward her left leg.


Philip Marlowe: Such a lot of guns around town and so few brains.
