Continuity mistake: When Cornelius meets the girl in the red dress and they dance and sing outdoors on the street, her dress is dragging on the pavement and the hem is clearly filthy. The next scene they arrive at the restaurant and her dress is clean and pressed.

Factual error: In the 19th Street Parade, it shows the Budweiser Clydesdales pulling their famous wagon. Even though this movie is set in 1897, Budweiser did not start using Clydesdales until April 1933 when the sons gave their father, August Busch Sr., the owner of Budweiser, a 6 team team of Clydesdales to celebrate the end of Prohibition.

Trivia: Three costumes were made for Streisand for the "Hello Dolly" number at the Harmonia Gardens. They are identical except for the length of the train. As she enters she has the dress with the full train. During the number the train "shortens" twice to enable the dance steps, particularly the backsteps, to be performed and for the last few bars she is back to the full train original dress.

Question: In the turkey dinner scene the cranberry sauce is called beets several times. Are they beets?

Answer: Beets are served with the dinner, as a side dish to the turkey and dumplings. Dolly tries repeatedly to serve them to Horace ("you salt your beets, I'll salt mine"), who repeatedly proclaims his distaste for them. There is no specific mention of cranberry sauce. But they'd be easy to confuse, as both are red and have a consistency not too dissimilar from one another.
