Blithe Spirit

Character mistake: Near the end, Madame Arcati says she'll ride her bike home - "I'll pedal home in a jiffy; it's only seven miles' - but she didn't take her bike; she was driven back with Charles, and the two ghost wives in the back. No room for a bike.


Character mistake: When Charles comes down to breakfast the evening after Elvira arrived, he comments to Ruth what a wonderful day it is, "not a cloud in the sky." But that's wrong; there's a low cloud bank and the rest is murky and gloomy.


Continuity mistake: Just before Charles sees Elvira, he takes a cigarette from a box and lights it, but when he goes to get a drink, the cigarette is gone.
