Rosemary's Baby (1968)

Continuity mistake: Rosemary is using a yardstick to draw a line on a piece of paper as Guy walks in and tells her that Donald Baumgart got the part in the play that he was hoping for. She goes into the kitchen to get him a beer and returns to what she was doing and everything has been moved without anyone going near it. Most notable is the book rack and the piece of foam to the left of her. (00:22:30)

Rosemary's Baby (1968)

Continuity mistake: Guy is lying down on the sofa as Rosemary shows him the necklace with the tannis root inside. His right ankle is leaning over the edge of the sofa right next to the lamp. Two shots later Guy says, "Well if you took it you ought to wear it" and the lamp has been moved a foot to the left of his ankle. (00:32:50)

Revealing mistake: As Rosemary looks at Minnie through her door the peep hole is obviously held up by hand in front of the camera as it is moving around considerably. (00:20:05)

Rosemary's Baby (1968)

Continuity mistake: At dinner with Hutch, Rosemary sits at her place at the table and we see a plate on the bookshelf behind her. The plate is on the bottom left shelf, close to the center, but later in the scene as they are eating the plate has moved about six inches to the left. The books on the right side of the bookshelf are also rearranged throughout this scene. (00:07:25)

Rosemary's Baby (1968)

Continuity mistake: Rosemary talks to Terry Gionoffrio in the basement as they both do their laundry. She interrupts their conversation to put fabric softener into the machine and, if you listen closely, the washing machine is empty as she pours it in. (00:13:45)

Rosemary's Baby (1968)

Continuity mistake: Roman walks back to the bar after he spills the vodka blush on the carpet. There's a typewriter on a movable desk, to right of his easy chair, that has been moved since Rosemary and Guy walked into the apartment. The tip-off is the design on the carpet underneath the easy chair. (00:25:25)

Rosemary's Baby (1968)

Continuity mistake: Minnie asks, "Where are you folks from?" and we see the wall behind Rosemary and Guy is in shadow. No-one turned any lights on or off but, when they first sat down, the wall behind the couch was lit up. (00:25:45)

Rosemary's Baby (1968)

Continuity mistake: The building manager says, "That's odd there's a closet behind that secretary". The lamp with the three lights that was in front of it when he opened the door of the apartment at the beginning of the scene, is not there now. (00:05:25)

Rosemary's Baby (1968)

Audio problem: Guy flushes the toilet as he walks through the bathroom. The toilet is actually empty and the sound is an over-dub because there is no resistance on the handle when he pushes it down. Had an old toilet like that actually been full you would see the resistance in the lever as the flapper inside rises. (00:04:45)
