Audio/visual unsynchronised 

In the scene where Lorelei is seeing Mr Esmond off at the ship, the words "Bye, lover!" are heard but Lorelei's lips do not move.

Character error 

During her confrontation with Lady Beekman, Lorelei calls Piggy "Lord Beekman". Later, the lawyer in the courtroom addresses Piggy as "Lord Beekman". As Piggy holds a knighthood, not a peerage, he should never be addressed as anything other than "Sir Francis".
During the "Ain't there anyone here for Love?" number, when Jane Russell is walking between the two lines of athletes doing knee-bends, one of the men on the left towards the back gets up too late and fails to do his bend in time with the others.

Continuity 

Lorelei has slender hands with long fingers and her nails are manicured. But, when she pulls the roll of film out of Ernie's pants, her hand is short with thick fingers and her nails are cut.
Lorelei's hair before and just after she performs "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend" is different to the style that she wears during her performance.
When Loreli and Dorothy are in New York, it is announced that the ship is bound for Cherbourg. Yet, when they dock, they are in Paris which can't accommodate large ocean liners.
As Dorothy and Lorelei walk to their dressing room after the opening number, Lorelei removes her hat with her right hand. When they enter the dressing room, the hat is in Lorelei's left hand.
The opening number ends with Dorothy near stage right and Lorelei near stage left. As the curtain closes, Dorothy is near stage left and Lorelei is near stage right.
When the ship is shown docking, the tops of the funnels have a wide red band but, seconds later, when the whistle is shown blowing, they are entirely black.
