A graphic after the credits identifies the film's main narrative as beginning "Yesterday", though the events appear to take place over the course of several days and nights. However, it has been debated that "Yesterday" can merely be a synonym for "in the past".
Daddy Hudson announces that Baby Jane dolls can be purchased after the show and guarantees them to be exact duplicates of Baby Jane Hudson. The dolls in the foyer do not look like Baby Jane and are not identical to each other.
In the film's final scene, when Baby Jane walks up to the ice cream vendor, her lipstick is much lighter than in the rest of the film. Moments after, her lips are once again covered with darker lipstick. Additionally, during the dancing scene subsequently on the beach, even though it's obviously hot out, the ice cream shows no signs of melting whatsoever.
When Blanche removes the note she has typed to throw to her neighbour from the typewriter, the machine's carriage is at the far right. The next shot is a close up of Blanche adding a handwritten footnote to the letter - the typewriter carriage is now positioned centrally.
Mrs. Bates pays her first visit to the Hudson home during early morning hours (Jane is fixing breakfast) but when she returns to her own home next door supposedly just minutes later, outdoor shadows indicate that hours have passed and it's now early-mid afternoon.
After Jane kicks Blanche, Blanche falls and Jane walks around her to kick her again, but when she kicks her again, she is in the same position that she was when she first kicked her, obviously as she kicks her from the right side of the screen (she would be on the left side of the screen if she walked around her).
When Edwin first visits the Hudson home, the wrought iron gates at the front door swing inward as he enters. But later in the story, when he bursts out of the house after discovering what Jane has done to Blanche, the gates swing outward as he exits.
When Blanche is on the telephone after she has made her way down the railing (and right before Jane shuts the door, causing Blanche to realize that she has returned) her right leg moves, obviously voluntarily.
The goof item below may give away important plot points.
The plot hinges on fact that Blanche was supposedly crippled when a car driven by Jane ran into her and penned her to gate. In reality, Blanche was injured while driving a car and unsuccessfully tried to run over Jane, then crawled in front of car after Jane fled. Blanche's injuries would not be consistent with someone who had actually been struck by a moving vehicle as she claimed.
