Continuity mistake: Georgia takes off her mink coat and tosses it on a chair. As she walks away we see another coat draped over the back of the chair but this coat was not there a second ago. Helen walks over, adjusts the mink coat and sits on the arm of the chair (with the mink coat under her). During the remainder of the scene the positions of the two coats keep changing. As Sam walks out of the room we see a throw pillow that has suddenly appeared between the mink coat and the back of the chair. (00:45:30)


Continuity mistake: Mrs. Kraft is playing cards with the bellboy, resting her feet on the shelf under the table.

Marty: And remember, glamour girl, I'll do this on just one condition.
Mrs. Kraft: What's that?
Marty: That you don't make any passes at me when you get me out there. I'm a very shy kid.
