The Graduate (1967)

Continuity mistake: Benjamin follows Elaine and meets up with her on a bus as she's going to the zoo to meet her boyfriend. After Elaine and her boyfriend walk off and leave Benjamin alone he looks over at two monkeys sitting in their cage. The first time we see them they're sitting next to a window, but in the next shot of them we're looking at two different monkeys that are not sitting next to a window. (01:20:25)

Continuity mistake: Mr. Robinson leaves Benjamin's apartment and calls him filth and scum as Mr. McCleery the landlord sits at the top of the steps listening. The painting on the wall to the left of the steps is not in direct light but in the next shot when Benjamin walks by the lighting has changed and a dark shadow cast by the frame against the wall is visible.

The Graduate (1967)

Continuity mistake: As he leaves the apartment Mr. McCleery tells Benjamin to, "get out of here". If you look closely at the light fixture over the pay phone in front of him you'll see it only has one light on it. In the next shot as he rounds the staircase we see it again and there are two lights on it. (01:33:15)

10th Jan 2007

The Graduate (1967)

Revealing mistake: The day after their first date Benjamin drives through the pouring rain to pick up Elaine. If you look closely out the side windows of the car you can see that it's produced by a rain machine, it's actually a beautiful day with the sun shining. (01:07:40)

The Graduate (1967)

Continuity mistake: Benjamin says to Mrs. Robinson, "I'm going home now, I apologize for what I said" as he walks out of Elaine's room.

The Graduate (1967)

Continuity mistake: Mrs. Robinson stands behind the bar and asks Benjamin, "What do you drink?" and you can see the ashtray next to the two black liquor bottles. In this shot there's nothing in it but a few seconds later as she sits in front of the bar it's full of cigarette butts. (00:10:20)

The Graduate (1967)

Continuity mistake: Mrs. Robinson sits at the bar and asks Benjamin, "Did you know I was an alcoholic?" and the silver shaker bottle with the large ring on top of it moves from the back of the bar to being between Mrs. Robinson and the radio she turns on, on the left wall. A few shots later it moves back again. (00:11:35)

9th Jan 2007

The Graduate (1967)

Continuity mistake: In the hotel room Mrs. Robinson makes Benjamin promise that he will never take Elaine out. If you look closely the purple chair in the middle of the room has been moved out about a foot away from the wall so that it's now blocking her line of sight and obscuring the bottom of the lamp that's in front of the window. When we saw this spot before as they were lying in bed the bottom of the lamp could easily be seen from the bed. (00:54:05)
