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. (01:24:40)

????

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. (00:43:10)

????

Continuity mistake: In the intro credits, John, George and Ringo jump onto several stacks of newspapers and John is sitting on them to the right. In the next shot he is crouching with both hands in front him ready to jump off. (00:01:25)

????

Continuity mistake: When John sings "I Should Have Known Better" there's an extreme close-up of his face as he sings, "That when I tell you that I love you, oh " and he's obviously sweating. In the next shot they show a close-up of his face on the control room monitor and there isn't a drop of sweat on him. (01:20:50)

????

Continuity mistake: At the very end of "I Should Have Known Better" all The Beatles' microphones have been removed from in front of them. (01:21:15)

????

Visible crew/equipment: A grumpy old man comes into their stateroom and sits with The Beatles. If you watch closely on the left of the screen someone bumps into the stage light and we can see it flicker. (00:06:05)

????

Continuity mistake: As The Beatles sit in the train car talking about Paul's grandfather Paul says, "he's nursing a broken heart" and Paul is sitting behind his grandfather. In the next shot he's leaning in front of him. (00:03:45)

????

Continuity mistake: As Paul sings, "Bright are the stars that shine" from "And I Love Her" they show a close-up of his face on the TV monitor entirely lit up by the stage lights. In the next live shot there's a shadow on the right side of his face. (00:49:20)

????

Continuity mistake: As Paul runs out of the train to his awaiting limo its door is open. In the next shot we see him from a different angle and he opens the door again. (00:16:20)

????

Revealing mistake: As Paul sings, "And I Love Her" there's a close-up shot of Ringo playing his bongos. The only problem is there are no bongos in this part of the song. (00:49:05)

????

Visible crew/equipment: In the second verse of "If I Fell" there's a shot from behind Ringo. Just as they sing, "If I trust in you" you can see a crewmember's head bobbing up and down at the bottom right of the screen. We see this place in previous and subsequent shots and no one is sitting there. (00:33:25)

????

Revealing mistake: John takes a pair of scissors and cuts the tailor's tape measure as he says, "I now declare this bridge open". Everyone else has left the room but the tailor winks at someone off camera. (00:47:10)

????

Continuity mistake: Paul's grandfather sits in the basement of the TV studio and pulls out a white ballpoint pen to sign the phony autographs on The Beatles' pictures. In the next shot he has a different silver pen that can be seen as it reflects the studio lights. (00:45:50)

????

Audio problem: When Ringo is "parading" he comes out of a thrift shop wearing his new over coat and hat and tries to talk to a girl in a black jacket. We hear her say to him, "Get out of it, Shorty" but her lips are saying something entirely different. (01:00:40)

????

Audio problem: As George sings, "I'm happy just to dance with you" four girls stand next to Paul and Ringo as their boss comes out yelling at them to get back to work. If you look at Ringo, his drumming is in perfect sync with the song but Paul's bass playing is not. (00:54:35)

????

Audio problem: When they sing "I Should Have Known Better" for the TV show there's a shot of John playing his harmonica just before he sings, "Wo oo oo I" and the harmonica is still in his mouth as we hear him sing the beginning of the verse. (01:19:05)

????

Continuity mistake: At the end of "I Should Have Known Better" there's a lone drumstick that appears wedged into a tuning key on the front of Ringo's bass drum that wasn't there in previous shots. (01:21:10)

????

Continuity mistake: When Paul's grandfather pulls the elevator lever he throws the pictures down in a messy pile. In the next shot when he pops up on stage the pictures are in a neat pile. (00:46:05)

????

Continuity mistake: On the stage Victor Spinetti says, "It's a young man's medium, I just can't stand the pace" and look closely at his blond assistant as she follows him off the set. At first she has nothing in her hands then she has a pile of paper. (00:47:45)

????

Continuity mistake: When the TV producer says to George "of course they're grotty, you wretched nit" his hands are out in front of him. In the previous shot his hands were behind his back. (00:43:50)
