Revealing mistake: When Paul goes through Annie's scrapbook, a fast reader may notice that several newspaper clippings (although having different headlines and being based on separate events), have the exact same story underneath. The text has simply been repeated, rather than a new report being created for each story.

Audio problem: In the scene where James Caan's character is lying in bed, practising grabbing a large knife from his arm sling, there is the metallic sound as he pulls out the knife. In the sling are his arm and the knife. There is nothing the knife could be pulled against to make the sound.

Question: Is there any reference to where Annie Wilkes goes at night when she is angry or depressed?

Chosen answer: According to the book, she goes to what she calls her "laughing place" (itself a reference to the Disney movie "Song of the South" in which brer rabbit sings about having a "laughing place. A "laughing place" is where he goes when he's feeling blue, to cheer himself up. We can presume Annie has some cabin or clearing in the woods where she has made her own "laughing place.
