Continuity mistake: At Spade's apartment, Brigid O'Shaughnessy and Joel Cairo get into a fight just as Detectives Dundy and Polhaus are talking to him at the front door. They come in and Joel has blood on his face, but it changes between shots throughout the scene.

Continuity mistake: Kasper Gutman says, "Come come, Mr. Spade. You can't expect us to believe at this late date that you're the least bit afraid of the police" with his left hand on his chin. In the next shot his left hand is at his side.

Continuity mistake: When they sing "Tell Me Why" for the TV show there's a shot taken from behind The Beatles. Here as John sings, "Well I'm beggin' on my bended knees" the microphone that was in front of him has now been moved and is facing Ringo. Later in the scene you can see that there are only two microphones on the stage here, one for Paul and George and one for John.

Audio problem: After the scene in the TV producer's office with George there's a shot of rehearsals going on at the TV studio with an older actor singing a German opera. His lips are mouthing something else.

Continuity mistake: In several shots of the audience, girls can be seen sitting in seats, then several shots later they've moved and can be seen leaning over the balcony.

????

Continuity mistake: After "She Loves You" they bow and the sign behind them is lit up and says "Beatles". The editor made a mistake here and inserted a shot from earlier in the movie with the stage background from the song "Tell Me Why".

????

Continuity mistake: When John says to Paul's grandfather, "Ya see you know what your trouble is, you should have gone West to America," they're standing about six feet apart, but in the next shot John has his arm on his shoulder.

????

Continuity mistake: The opening for the elevator where Paul's grandfather pops up through the stage floor disappears between shots at the end of "She Loves You".

????

Audio problem: During the show George stops playing as he yanks Paul's grandfather off the stage but we still hear his lead guitar riff in "She Loves You".

????

Continuity mistake: When The Beatles first enter their stateroom on the train we see the door as Paul opens it and there's a first-class sign on it. Later Norm and Shake leave the stateroom as the older grumpy gentleman walks in. They never leave but this stateroom is not the same one that The Beatles walked into before as it has another sticker under the first-class sign that reads, "All Seats Reserved".

xx:xx:xx

????

Factual error: After the TV producer talks to Norm and Shake, three Beatles (minus Ringo) appear singing the theme song of the movie "A Hard Day's Night". Not only are their lips not moving, but they couldn't possibly have been playing "A Hard Day's Night" because it wasn't written until after the movie was completed.

????

Continuity mistake: In the commissary Paul's grandfather says, "Would'ya look at 'em" as he tries to get Ringo to stop reading his book, which he holds differently between shots.

????

Continuity mistake: After the show, Norm tells The Beatles to get ready to leave for a midnight matinee later that night and the clock on the wall reads 9:10 PM. It's well after dark but in the next shot as they board the helicopter for the next show it's midday.

xx:xx:xx

????

Continuity mistake: The TV producer talks to George and says, "I mean lines ducky, can you handle lines?" and his two assistants are sitting on the window sill in front of the blinds. In the next shot they both have moved over about four feet to their left and are not in front of the window anymore.
