Corrected entry: General Gordon the parrot is a cockatoo when Mrs. Wilberforce first speaks to him, but a green macaw when Harry Robinson is roped in to help give him his medicine.

Correction: Mrs. Wilberforce has three parrots. When she is introducing them to the Professor, she specifically calls the green macaw General Gordon.

Corrected entry: Just after the Major draws the short match, and is protesting that he can't kill Mrs.W. the door to the bedroom, that Mr. Lawson broke down earlier, is seen restored. (01:04:00)


Correction: He didn't break it down completely, he just broke it open. It can still be opened and closed and many of the characters do it after he breaks it open. No mistake.

Corrected entry: Garth Pancake blows off his right index finger. But when the gang is doing the champagne toast after the heist, the finger is visible in a blurred foreground shot. In the next shot, it is missing again.


Continuity mistake: After dropping Harry from the bridge, during the short shot of One-Round, a train appears on the tracks behind Marcus and Louis. (01:21:35)

Louis: She had to go. She asked for it. She's probably been asking for it all her life.
Harry: Yeah! Look what she done to that barrow boy and-and the cabbie and the junkman. All of them out of business in ten minutes.
