Character error 

Early in the film, Andre criticizes Phillippe's letter on its grammar, citing a split infinitive. Andre then tells Philippe to "boldly go outside", thus committing a split infinite himself.

Continuity 

(at around 1h 08 mins) When the chandelier falls, Andre is first shown rolling away well to his right just as the rope is cut. His back isn't touching the floor. He is then shown from above rolling to his LEFT. While looking up at the falling chandelier his back is firmly planted on the floor. The final shot again shows him rolling to his right in a slight repeat of the first shot.

When Andre's sword slices Noel's upper right arm, there is no tear in the fabric, and no blood until Noel puts his left hand over his arm leaving finger shaped blood spots, and which change size/shape throughout the rest of the sword fight.

Factual errors 

At the very end of the motion picture, Lenore turns away from the window where she has just tossed an exploding bouquet to Scaramouche and we discover that her newest lover is none other than Napoleon Bonaparte. However, the appearance of Napoleon in the scene is incorrect since it shows him as he appeared after 1806. The motion picture is set in pre-revolutionary France. At that time, Napoleon was thin and had long hair.

Assuming the pamphlet is written in French, a split infinitive is an impossibility. Unlike English, French infinitives are a single word.

When Lenore comes to seek Aline's aid in saving Andre from Noel Aline's little dog barks at the foot of her bed but shows no sign of barking other than at the very beginning but the sound continues with no other movement. Dogs move their heads when they bark.
