Errors in geography 

The want ad in the newspaper for Rutland & Co. gives its address as "213 Arley St." but there is no such street in Philadelphia. Based on the establishing matte painting shot of the Rutland & Co building which shows the Ben Franklin Bridge (originally called the Delaware River Bridge when built in 1926) in the upper left, the "real" location of the fictional building would most likely be at either 213 Quarry Street which is two blocks south of the bridge or 213 Arch Street which is three block south.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Marnie asks for the gun to shoot her horse, the woman of the house says she'll get her husband's pistol. She returns, however, with a revolver. Technically, a revolver is not a pistol, because it does not have a fixed chamber, but it is often thought of as one.
