The Asphalt Jungle picture

Continuity mistake: Doc Riedenschneider calls on Cobby in a dark hallway with brick walls and a door in the end with a half-open transom. Through this door, in the adjacent room, there are several gangsters seated a table. They go down the hallway and enter this room. In the next scene they have entered and the seated gangsters are suddenly no longer there. Nor is there a transom over the door. The hallway viewed from this room has white walls now instead of brick.
