Goofs

Continuity 

The length of Julian's cigarette changes dramatically (gets longer and then gets much shorter than he could smoke it down to in the short time between shots) whilst he's playing the piano for Vicky in Lermontov's office.

Boom mic visible 

Just before Julian Craster begins to play the piano for the first time for Lermontov, the shadow of a boom mic can be scene moving into position, projected against the wall behind him.

Continuity 

When Vicky begins to dance with the "newspaper" character, only the words "Le Journal" are typed across his face. Partway through the dance his face is covered with newsprint.

Miscellaneous 

Near the end, when Vicky is getting ready to go on stage for "The Red Shoes" once again, she's wearing the red dancing shoes as she hesitates, but that play starts with the white dancing shoes; only during the play does her character find the red shoes and put them on.

However, this is not an accidental goof. This is essential to the plot and the director wants us to overlook this detail so that all the symbolism of Vicky wearing those red shoes while "unable to stop dancing" can be fully explored.

As Julian Craster walks to the theater, he is seen through an archway, when a horse drawn cart passes. Stepping into the street, he slips on what appears to be a fruit, but doesn't fall, recovers and continues walking.
