Suggested correction: The old woman, Barbara Bush, is simply off camera standing next to her husband, George Bush. She had plenty of time to step back to be next to him when we get a shot of Jane. The balcony scene isn't a continuous shot though. And she's back because she's with George Bush on the balcony.

Continuity mistake: When Frank is driving the tank, a dog house is connected to the tank with a chain. You can see the chain is connected inside the dog house. When it cuts the chain is connected to the corner of the dog house. (00:32:30)
