Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Continuity mistake: As George says "That you people are rearranging my genes so that everyone will be like everyone else" he puts his left arm around Nick. His hand, though is on the back of the sofa. Instantly in the next shot, however his left hand is now on Nick's left shoulder.

Continuity mistake: When Martha is on the floor by the coffee table crying as George tells her about their son being killed, she has two lines of tears on her cheek, when the camera pans back she only has one tear that has streamed down.

Continuity mistake: Richard Burton returns to his house and cannot get in the front door, because Elizabeth Taylor and George Segal came in, put the inside security chain on the door and went upstairs together. In the next scene, Burton and Sandy Dennis are talking in the front yard. At the end of the scene, Dennis turns and goes into the house. Burton and Segal haven't come downstairs yet, so no-one could have taken the chain off.

Suggested correction: Burton has already kicked in the door prior to this scene.

Revealing mistake: When George and the young man are in the garden, telling jokes and drinking bourbon, the young man pours some bourbon into George's glass, but the bourbon, instead of being brown, is clear, like water.

George: You take the trouble to construct a civilization, to build a society based on the principles of... of principle. You make government and art and realise that they are, must be, both the same. You bring things to the saddest of all points, to the point where there is something to lose. Then, all at once, through all the music, through all the sensible sounds of men building, attempting, comes the Dies Irae. And what is it? What does the trumpet sound? Up yours.
