Continuity mistake: If you look carefully at the monster (Frankenstein) you will see that his face is different in the ending scenes. The reason is, during the movie you see the monster take the woman doctor and throw her out the laboratory window. You then see the monster kind of stumble, which he really did and broke his ankle. So in the final scenes they replaced Lon Chaney Jr. as wolfman with a stuntman, and Lon Chaney Jr. finished the movie as the monster.
Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie, Lucinda is severely injured in her leg, and has to hobble to walk. In the last scene (a short time later) as she approaches her home, she is walking with no problem, and has her arm in a sling.
Plot hole: When Ralls runs the Witch onto the reef, he is at the helm. As she strikes bow on, the wheel spins madly for no reason, as the tiller ropes would not have been affected by the collision.
Continuity mistake: When the baby bird kicks the straw off when he is lying down, you can see that there is some straw on the nest, but when we see the bird in the next shot, the straw has disappeared.
Continuity mistake: When Bugs throws Sam's treasure chest out of his home, you can see that the chest is well away from the hole, but when Bugs emerges from his home covered in jewellery, the chest is much closer to the hole than it was in the previous shot.
Continuity mistake: When Chip and Dale have bitten into the piece of fried rubber cement, they stretch the piece by stepping backwards and Donald awaits Dale with a fork. When Dale steps backwards you can see there is a bowl beside him, but in the next shot the bowl has changed into a flour tin. Shortly afterwards it's back to being a bowl, and a spoon has appeared.
