Continuity mistake: No one drinks much lemonade, so there's neither time nor need for Eve to refill the pitcher during the brief cut to a scene on the porch. Yet after she has emptied its contents into the glasses on the tray, the lemonade pitcher refills itself.

Continuity mistake: After Franklin falls through the window at the end, he lands on the pavement below - on top of the broken window frame. Next shot, when the police are examining the body, the window frame has moved out from under Franklin and is lying about a foot away. One shot later, though, it's back in its original position underneath him.
Continuity mistake: Hall leaps through the plate glass window. In the interior shot, he breaks the glass and is 3/4 of the way through the opening (up to his knees) - until we cut to a view from outside the window. Then he's just crashing through at shoulder level.
Continuity mistake: When Mr. Bookman is leaving his apartment to get away from Death, there is a note tacked to the door that is about level with his head. In the next shot, he's out in the hallway locking his door and the note has moved up to about 6 inches above his head.
Continuity mistake: When Decker first exits the aircraft, there is a jeep immediately behind it, a service truck behind the jeep, and a USAF F-100 Super Sabre jet in the background. However, when Maj Wilson escorts him away from the plane, the service truck is gone and the F-100 has been replaced with a large transport aircraft.
Continuity mistake: When Caswell walks toward the phone booth and the woman exits, she passes on his right side and walks down the sidewalk. Later in the scene Caswell gets trapped in the phone booth and breaks the window to get out. When he breaks the window, notice that the phone booth is no longer located on the sidewalk, it is now magically next to a building.

Continuity mistake: When the Ground Crewman runs after Lt. Decker, he reaches him just as Decker is climbing onto the plane. You see the Ground Crewman put his hand (or just about to) on Decker's upper left arm. When they cut to a closer shot, the Ground Crewman's hand is in the process of moving up to Decker's arm.
Continuity mistake: When Decker first gets out of his plane, Maj Wilson begins to question him. Decker's hair is neatly combed. When Wilson asks him "Are you French?" the shot changes to a closeup of Decker only. His hair is now disheveled in the front and hanging down on his forehead. The next shot returns to the wider angle and Decker's hair is more neatly combed again, as it originally was, not hanging on his forehead.
Continuity mistake: The jeep driver is standing behind Lt. Decker's aircraft during the initial conversation between Decker and Maj Wilson. His hands are behind the fuselage in the initial shot. When the shot changes to a close up of Decker, the driver's hands are now on top of the fuselage.
Continuity mistake: In the early scene when Bevis tumbles down the stairs of his apartment, a little boy watches and then holds his hands over his eyes. In the next shot, the boy is shown walking outside, but then the camera cuts and he is shown back inside, his hands still over his eyes.
Continuity mistake: When Mr. Bevis starts his car, a girl with shoulder-length hair runs over with other children to help push it. In the first shot she's at the rear bumper but in the following shot she's beside the passenger door and there are different kids at the rear bumper.
Continuity mistake: When Cadwallader puts a seal on the Escape Clause paper, he presses so hard that he manages to lift the whole document with seal. You can see that there is absolutely nothing except for a seal mark on the paper, yet when he drops the paper to the floor some typed text appears on it. Also in the same scene, the seal pattern is square in the first shot, but when the paper drops to the floor the seal mark is round.
