Continuity 

Nick arrives drunk at home with no cigarette at all. When he appears indoors he has a lit cigarette in his mouth.
Frank and Cora are further apart, then closer together, when they get home from the late night swim.
The way Cora hugs Frank changes after the cop and DA look at the dead cat.
Frank is twice positioned in the courtroom in the wheelchair.
Frank takes off his tie after getting married, but it is back on at the train station.
When Frank and Cora first leave Nick, Cora falls in the dirt to avoid being hit by a car. All she lands on is her bottom. But the dirt keeps changing it's location in different shots, being sometimes on her shoulders, on the front of her skirt, completely gone when she sits on the suitcase, then obviously applied to her bottom as they are returning to the diner.
Position of Frank's hand on the armrest when he and Cora talk after leaving the preliminary hearing.

Crew or equipment visible 

At the start of the film, as the car rolls down the hill before Frank gets out, you can clearly see the crew's reflection in the side paneling of the car.

Revealing mistakes 

During the second part of the car tumbling down the mountain, wires connected to the back bumper are visible.
In the first scene in the new beer garden after the trial, Frank is shown holding a tray with 3 glasses on it, except he is holding the tray at such an angle that the glasses would obviously slide off if they weren't glued in place.
