Green for Danger

Continuity mistake: The postman hangs his bag to the hook on the wall. By the noise, he knows a split-second in advance that an explosion is about to happen, and ducks. The actor ducks out of view; we are not supposed to notice that once he disappears, film editing inserts the part when the background partially detonates. We however do, because the bag in the foreground changes position in the space of a single frame. (00:05:25)

Dr. Barney Barnes: I gave nitrous oxide at first, to get him under.
Inspector Cockrill: Oh yes, stuff the dentist gives you, hmmm - commonly known as "laughing gas."
Dr. Barney Barnes: Used to be - actually the impurities cause the laughs.
Inspector Cockrill: Oh, just the same as in our music halls.
