The Train

Continuity mistake: In the train yard scene when Le Biche and Colonel Von Windheim are watching for the trains to switch to the right tracks a pipe is tossed onto a chair and tobacco spills out, but when the camera is panned away and comes back the tobacco is nowhere to be seen.

Other mistake: When Papa Boule kicks Labiche off his train and tells him to throw the switch (turnout) Labiche actually operates one behind the train, not in front of it.

Larry Redfield

Revealing mistake: When Col. Franz von Waldheim first encounters Mademoiselle Villard at the museum and walks away from her to turn on all the lights, the wall to the right bounces like canvas as he operates the switch.

Colonel von Waldheim: Beauty belongs to the man who can appreciate it.

Papa Boule: Renoir... I knew a girl who modeled for Renoir... She smelled of paint.
