Rosemary's Baby (1968)

Visible crew/equipment: At the end of the movie, Minnie gives Rosemary a cup of Lipton's tea as she sits in a chair in front of a book case and we see the camera shadow on the lamp on Rosemary's left. (02:13:20)

Rosemary's Baby (1968)

Other mistake: As Rosemary, Guy and the building manager walk up the steps into The Dakota, Guy accidentally calls Rosemary "Liz". It's easy to think that this might be a joke and not a mistake except for the fact that he gets her name wrong three times in the movie. (00:02:35)

Rosemary's Baby (1968)

Deliberate mistake: Rosemary takes out the Scrabble game, trying to figure out what the anagram means, and spills all letters onto the floor. In the next shot the title of the book "All of Them Witches" appears on the floor without her ever touching them. (01:28:30)

Rosemary's Baby (1968)

Continuity mistake: At dinner Minnie passes Guy a piece of cake on a plate. We see the cake when she cuts it and there's only white icing on top, but when Guy starts eating it there are now strawberries on top. (00:27:00)

Rosemary's Baby (1968)

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie Rosemary, Guy and the building manager walk up the steps of the Dakota and all look forward as they wait in front of the elevator. In the next shot the building manager is looking in the opposite direction at Rosemary and Guy. (00:02:40)

Rosemary's Baby (1968)

Continuity mistake: Before she goes into labor Rosemary and Guy's alarm clock above their bed reads 9:30 throughout the scene, but when Dr. Sapirstein injects her with a sedative and she goes into labor the wrist watch that the man on the right of the screen is wearing gives another time which is 11:15. (01:57:15)

Rosemary's Baby (1968)

Audio problem: As they walk together, Rosemary has a talk with Hutch about Guy's new part and she says, "suddenly he's hot" but it comes out as "suddenly he's hopt". The close captioning also reads "hot". (00:35:35)

Rosemary's Baby (1968)

Continuity mistake: The building manager lets them into the apartment and Rosemary and Guy stand in the hallway as he closes the door behind them. In the next shot Rosemary is already in the kitchen. (00:03:50)

Rosemary's Baby (1968)

Factual error: Rosemary calls Dr. Hill from a pay phone and says, "The baby's due on Tuesday, you remember you told me June 28th" (and June 28th 1966 does fall on a Tuesday). In the previous scene in Dr. Sapirstein's office his receptionist is making an appointment "next week" for a patient and that date is "July 10th" indicating that if Rosemary is due on June 28th (which she says is next Tuesday) the dates do not match and it must still be the week of June 20th which is at least two weeks before July 10th. (01:44:45)

Rosemary's Baby (1968)

Continuity mistake: After the birth, Dr. Sapirstein injects her twice with sedatives but when we see Rosemary's arm as she is recuperating there are no burses or marks that we can see where she received the shots. (02:00:45)

????

Question: Was Dr. Hill a witch?

????

Chosen answer: No, Dr. Hill was not a Satan worshiper. He was just Rosemary's first obstetrician, referred to her by a friend. However, her neighbors, the Castevettes, later convince her to instead go to their friend, Dr. Abe Sapperstein, who is a warlock.

Continuity mistake: Before she enters their apartment and sees her baby, Rosemary walks back to the closet that connects her apartment with the Castevet's and as she opens the door we see yellow linens on the top shelf. Several shots before as she takes the shelves down these yellow linens fell on her head and were not put back on the shelf. (02:05:25 - 02:07:40)

????

Continuity mistake: Rosemary walks into the party holding a knife and we see Guy talking to Minnie who is sitting next to a table full of gifts. Next time we see the table two shots later the gifts have been moved without anyone going near them. (02:08:45)

????

Continuity mistake: Rosemary goes to the kitchen and gets a knife and proceeds back to the closet that connects her apartment with the Castevet's. When she left the closet before getting the knife the shelves were stacked against the doorframe, but now as she returns the shelves are neatly stacked against the far wall. (02:05:25 - 02:07:35)

????

Continuity mistake: In order to fool the witches Rosemary takes the pills that they give her and sticks them between a brick and the middle shelf of her head board. When we first see this spot the bricks are flush with the shelf but in the next shot the shelf has been moved out about three-quarters of an inch past the bricks. (02:03:50)

????

Continuity mistake: As she sits waiting for Dr. Sapirstein, Rosemary picks up a TIME Magazine with the cover story "Is God Dead" (April 8,1966) which has a red border and white lettering on top. In the next shot if you look very closely she's reading another magazine that has a red border and yellow lettering. (01:40:40)

????

Deliberate mistake: Rosemary believes that her baby is alive and proceeds to the closet that connects her apartment with the Castevet's and it takes well over a minute, and a bit of noise for her to undo the shelves. Dr. Sapirstein and Guy would have had to do the exact same thing when they broke into the apartment in the previous scene but it took them less than thirty seconds including the time it took to get into the Castevet's apartment from the hallway. (02:05:35)

????

Continuity mistake: The morning after the birth Rosemary wakes up and startles Laura-Louise, and the face of the clock behind the bed is lit up. In the next shot as she looks at it's not lit up. It's also ticking yet the second hand doesn't move. (01:59:25)

????

Visible crew/equipment: Rosemary walks into the party in the Castevet's apartment where she first sees the baby and you can see the shadows of a ton of stage lights and equipment on her shoulders. (02:08:40)

????

Continuity mistake: Rosemary goes into labor and the pillowcase on her bed has flowers on it. In the next shot when she wakes up even though she's still wearing the same dress, the pillow cases are different now having yellow and white stripes. (01:58:50)
