Goofs

Anachronisms 

In almost every crowd scene, no matter what era it is supposed to be taking place in, there are at least one or two extras wearing 1940s clothing.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When in England, there are street performers singing "Rosalie". The accordion player's hands never press the keys, in fact his right hand is static throughout the whole scene.

Continuity 

During the rehearsal of the song "I Get A Kick Out Of You" at Cole Porter's mansion, a butler uncorks a bottle of champagne. The force of the uncorking knocks the towel off his arm. A second later in the next shot, the towel is back on his arm.

When Cole talks to his mother at Christmas, he places his gifts on a table and a long, thin box is leaning against other packages. When the scene cuts to show the packages again, they are neatly stacked.

Crew or equipment visible 

When Cole sings "In An Old-fashioned Garden", the camera moves through the room towards the window. As it is approaching the window, we see a chair in the camera's way being pulled out by a crewman.

Factual errors 

As in Kiss Me Kate, Cole Porter is depicted as a healthy man who is capable of walking for most of the film. In fact, he was a cripple needing constant medical care for his shattered legs which were the result of a riding accident in 1937; any scene showing him walking after that date is in error.

Throughout the film Porter is portrayed as a lady's man when, in reality, he was openly homosexual.

The poster showing one of Cole Porter's musicals read "The Gay Divorcee." It should have read "The Gay Divorce." The movie was the former.

In the movie, it is implied that the U.S.S. Lusitania was sunk the same night as Porter's Broadway play "See America First" debuted. In fact, the Lusitania was sunk over 10 months before (May 7, 1915) the play opened (March 28, 1916).

"You Do Something to Me" is depicted as being performed in "See America First" (1916) when it actually was used in "Fifty Million Frenchmen" (1929).
