Errors in geography 

While the movie is supposed to take place in New York City, while hailing a taxi the London car dealership of Jack Barclay is visible in the background.

Factual errors 

During his diatribe, Rupert claims that the Roman Empire fell with the assassination of Caesar. Caesar's assassination occurred 17 years before the Roman Empire was established.
The TV station repeatedly shown in the movie has the call letters "KPXA." However, being in New York the call letters should begin with a "W" as stations east of the Mississippi River begin the letter "W" and not "K".

Revealing mistakes 

When Chaplin's title character first meets the boy Rupert, the boy goes into an extended diatribe. Numerous times in the scene, the boy can be observed silently saying Chaplin's lines as well as his own, presumably as a way of remembering his cue.
