Continuity mistake: In Geiger's house when Marlowe finds the hidden camera, we see a vase on the left of the fireplace and it's shadow falls directly behind it. Marlowe doesn't touch any light switches but later in the scene the lighting has changed and the shadow of the vase is now falling to the right of it. (00:22:45 - 00:23:35)????
Continuity mistake: Marlowe goes into Geiger's house again to snoop around and he finds that Geiger's dead body has been removed. As he stands over the spot where the body was his shadow falls right on the bloodspot. In the next shot of him kneeling down and touching the blood stained carpet there's no shadow. (00:28:00)????

Continuity mistake: The front door of the Sternwood's is in the first shot of the movie as Marlowe rings the door bell. The front of the door has just one indentation near the knocker, later we see the front door again as Marlowe brings Carmen home and now it has two indentations. (00:01:15 - 00:25:15)????
