Clue

Other mistake: Even though it is pouring with rain, Mr. Green's coat is completely dry when he arrives at the manor. (00:07:30)

Character mistake: During the conversation in the study about who is blackmailing who, Mrs. White mentions two of her five husbands: An illusionist who disappeared and never reappeared and a nuclear physicist who was found dead at home. During the last ending, Mrs. White says "So this has nothing to do with the disappearance of my nuclear physicist husband or Colonel Mustard's work on the new top secret fusion bomb?". However, during the conversation in the study, Mrs. White says her illusionist husband had disappeared and her nuclear physicist husband was found dead at home. So the correct term would be "So this has nothing to do with the disappearance of my ILLUSIONIST husband or Colonel Mustard's work on the new top secret fusion bomb?". (00:21:05 - 01:27:35)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: Miss Scarlet moves to a table to open her unexpected gift. When she says "I enjoy getting presents from strange men", if you look close enough, she goes to remove the box's ribbon twice. (00:24:45)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: Before Mr. Boddy turns out the lights, there is a statue a few inches below and away from the switch. However when Mrs. Peacock turns the lights back on, the statue is directly under the switch. (00:26:25)

Casual Person

Revealing mistake: A visible editing flaw occurs near the beginning, after they return from the Billiard Room with Yvette. While Mrs. White is saying her line to Wadsworth, "I think you had better explain," she starts to unbutton her overcoat. Next is a wide shot of the room that is supposed to be in real time, but Mrs. White's overcoat has already been removed, and she is getting ready to lay it on a chair. Everyone is paused on their marks as if the film was spliced at the exact moment the director yelled, "Action" and no one had moved yet. (00:31:12)

Macalou

Deliberate mistake: When they are bringing the Cook's body into the study, it's obvious the Cook is actually the Cook's double because she is much thinner and takes up less space in the doorway. (00:34:40)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When everyone is in the Library, you can see the matches in a cup on the left of the fireplace. When Professor Plum says, "Wait a minute, suppose that one of us is the murderer," you can also see that the matches are in a "V" shape. When Wadsworth walks towards them to pull the matches out, most of them are all leaning to the left side of the cup. As the movie goes on, when the cop gets locked up in the Library for the second time, the same amount of matches are in the holding cup as if Wadsworth did not pull them out and they are in a straight line. (Third time code 1:02:40). (00:44:25 - 00:45:05)

James R P

Revealing mistake: When the 4 people upstairs, Yvette, Mr Green, the butler, and Mrs White all come running downstairs because Col Mustard and Mrs Scarlet are yelling at the locked door they collide at the top of the stairs. When they all hit they're stunt men and women. (00:54:15)

Deliberate mistake: When Mrs. White is screaming after the power cut, she then says "Help me!" multiple times. It's obvious the "Help me!" lines are just a recording played over and over. (01:03:15)

Casual Person

Other mistake: When everyone finds the Cop's dead body, there is a wound showing were the murderer hit him on the head with the pipe, however, the pipe shows there is no blood. (01:04:30)

Suggested correction: She was shot, not switched off. She likely didn't die instantly. It's perfectly reasonable that she would move her arm as she was dying.

She died instantly, that is why she collapsed instantly. I am still wondering why they didn't make it look like a real shot, and have blood around the area she was shot at? They made it look as though she was wearing a bulletproof vest and was shot. You can see silver, no blood.

Wadsworth: The game's up, Scarlet. There are no more bullets left in that gun.
Miss Scarlet: Oh come on, you don't think I'm going to fall for that old trick.
Wadsworth: It's not a trick. There was one shot at Mr. Boddy in the study, two at the chandelier, two at the lounge door, and one at the singing telegram.
Miss Scarlet: That's not six.
Wadsworth: One plus two plus two plus one.
Miss Scarlet: Uh-uh. There was only one shot that got the chandelier, so that's one plus two plus ONE plus one.
Wadsworth: Even if you were right, that would be one plus one plus two plus one, not one plus two plus one plus one.
Miss Scarlet: Okay, fine. One plus two plus one...SHUT UP! Point is, there's one bullet left in this gun, and guess who's going to get it!

Trivia: The producer's first choice for the role of Ms. Scarlett was Carrie Fisher, but she was unable to sign onto the film because she'd recently admitted herself to a rehab facility to battle drug addiction.

More trivia for Clue

Question: Was Mrs. White in love with Wadsworth? She seemed to be getting rather close to him in the beginning of the film (i.e., giving him a hanky when he's crying about his wife, playing with his tie and being flirtatious when he won't let her outside), but then seems to turn a 180 and not really like him. Why?

Answer: No, Mrs. White was not in love with Wadsworth. She may have been slightly physically attracted to him at the time of the "hanky incident", but it is more likely that she only felt sympathy for this poor man. As for the playing with the tie incident, she only did that so he would let her out.
