Continuity 

When Jeff visits Leonard Eels' office building there are clearly five names on the directory under 'E' in the long shot, but just two in the POV shot that follows immediately.

Leonard Eels's apartment at 114 Fulton Street would be part of the block then occupied by the main branch of the San Francisco Public Library (now the Asian Art Museum).

Spoilers

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Continuity 

When Jeff Bailey, aka Jeff Markham (Robert Mitchum) almost gets killed in the mountains near the river, whilst fishing, he has long hair. In the rest of film he has short hair. Mitchum was wearing his hair "long" (by 1940s standards), having come straight from the noir western Pursued, and was told by Jacques Tourneur to find a barber. Bridgeport didn't have one, and ultimately Mitchum drove two hours and 78 miles before he found one. This scene near the river in the mountains must have been recorded before Mitchum found the barber. Also the crew had delays during the mountain shoots (due to bad weather).
