Errors in geography 

The "British" light switches in the sets are unmistakably American. They even operate in the American way - up for on, down for off - the opposite of real British switches.

Revealing mistakes 

Alfred Hitchcock makes his cameo appearance about forty-six minutes in, posting a letter in the village. Note the background in this shot and a shot just a few seconds earlier with the car driving by and a man walking while smoking. They are both exactly the same background shot with same car, people, with one being enlarged. It could be the film was so expensive, the re-use of background shots was needed.
