Suggested correction: 1) This only appears in the preview version of the film, not the final version. 2) Why would an apartment building not have an exit sign? Can you cite a reference for this? I would think someone making a contemporary film would notice if it was such an obvious error you think it is.

The Maltese Falcon picture

Other mistake: Detectives Dundy and Polhaus visit Bogart at 3:40 in the middle of the night as we see the time on his alarm clock after they walk in. In the previous shot it's impossible to tell what time it is time because there are no hands on the clock. (00:11:10)

Niagara picture

Other mistake: The first time we see George Loomis back at the Rainbow Cabins after his supposed death he's by the garbage cans in the back of cabin B with a brick wall on the left. The next time we see him two shots later the film has been reversed with the brick wall now being on the right. (00:46:45)

Suspicion picture

Other mistake: When the invitation to the Hunt Ball is shown on the screen, it says that the ball is on Thursday, March 7, but on the night of the ball when Lena gets the telegram from Johnnie, the date of the telegram is March 8, 1938, which would have been the next day. And March 8, 1938, was actually a Tuesday and March 7, 1938 (the day of the Thursday Ball), was actually a Monday.

The Third Man picture

Other mistake: Near the end, Harry Lime is trying to escape through the sewers of Vienna. There is an opening to the street; Harry puts all his fingers through the holes, trying to lift the metal plate, but Harry has a pistol in his right hand; there is no way he can poke all his fingers through with his right hand with the pistol in it.
