Other mistake: When Salt was trying to escape in the CIA building, the tactical team was preparing to enter Salt's final hold up, the holographic sight on one of the tactical team member's M4 is mounted the wrong way.

Continuity mistake: When Salt and Winters first start talking between the glass window in the bunker Salt's body is facing slightly to the left. The camera cuts to the front of Salt and she is now facing right.

Trivia: In the scene where Salt jumps off the subway, the dark and heavily guarded station is supposed to be the 51st Street Station on the IRT Lexington Avenue Line in Manhattan, the nearest station to St. Bartholomew's Church. However, it is recognizable as an IND Station by the thick tiled columns, indented green-striped walls, and the wider train, and is in fact the Hoyt-Schermerhorn Station in Brooklyn, with its signs covered by the number "51".

Trivia: Orlov's "hideout" is on a scrapped ship located in a 'bone yard' of other scrapped ships waiting to be dismantled, etc. This 'bone yard' of ships is located at a landfill site on Staten Island - I believe the name is the "Fresh Kills" Landfill. This is the landfill where debris from 9/11 was taken, and can briefly be seen in the background of a few panoramic shots.

Question: Salt has been with the agency for a long time and has earned the trust of her colleagues, so when she is accused of being a spy, why would her superiors take the word of a defector over her?

Chosen answer: They have to at least investigate that kind of an accusation, and when Salt so vigorously resists arrest it basically confirms, in their minds, that she is in fact a spy.

Question: Once Salt escapes from the police car (approx 1/2 way through the film), she grabs a fur hat. In the next few scenes she is wearing a matching wrap, including the same fur. Where did she get that?

Chosen answer: She stole it as well.
