Corrected entry: In the scene where Linus is showing David the plastic, Linus borrows David's lighter and lights it under the plastic sheet and says "Doesn't burn. Doesn't scorch. Doesn't melt." But when he asks David to taste it, you can see a black mark when the lighter has scorched it. Linus then walks across the room and put the plastic back into it's holder, the black mark is mostly gone but you can still see a smudge. Later at the party Linus is doing the flame test again for a roomful of men, the same thing happens, he puts the plastic to the flame and it scorches.

Correction: That's not a scorch - it's a soot stain from the old fashioned fluid and wick lighter.

Factual error: When David talks to Linus about the consequences of calling off his engagement with Elizabeth he says that their father would take to the bottle and smoke six coronas. Throughout the movie the old Larrabee smokes one churchill after another, but not a single corona, which is significantly shorter than a churchill. (01:02:05)

Question: Toward the end of the movie, when David walks into Linus' office and asks him if Miss McCardle has to be there. Doesn't Linus address her as Miss McCarthy?

Answer: I've seen this movie numerous times over the years. Linus always addresses his secretary as "Miss McCardle."

Linus does call her Mrs. McCarthy about 11 minutes before the end of the movie. I checked several times. It's true. It's a mistake.
