Character mistake: When Herr Falkstein introduces himself to Frederick he tells him he has come 5,000 miles to bring him his great-grandfather's will. The ancestor in question was supposed to be his grandfather, not great-grandfather. (00:11:53)

Suggested correction: Victor is Fredrick's grandfather, but not the one who died. Baron Beaufort von Frankenstein died, leaving the estate to Fredrick. Beaufort is his great grandfather.


Other mistake: Why would the blind man need a lit candle in his room? Except for cooking and cigars, he would not need to light the room.

Suggested correction: Already posted and corrected. He is lonely and likes to have visitors. He is making his home warm and inviting.

That makes perfect sense. Thanks.

Continuity mistake: When Inga, Frederick, and Igor reach the secret library, Frederick reaches for the door knob to grasp it with his right hand, but the view from inside the room showing them entering has Frederick's right hand opening the door without using the knob.

Trivia: Another time you can see Gene Wilder laughing when he's not supposed to be is after he finds out the project failed (the quiet, dignity, and grace speech). He starts strangling the monster, and you can see that he is stifling laughter. Finally, he can't hold it in any longer and proceeds to partially hide his face behind the monster lying on the table in an attempt to cover up his smirks (but you can still see that he is laughing).
