Character error 

In the shopping scene inside Bergdorf-Goodman, to spite his father, Arthur orders 4 dozen shirts, then goes on to tell the cashier, "I want 14 of these sweaters... all green... I don't wear sweaters..." A few scenes later in the floral shop, we see Arthur clearly wearing a purple sweater... and then again when he is visiting his Aunt Martha Bach, he is seen wearing a bright yellow sweater. So much for his statement "I don't wear sweaters..."

Linda speaks with her dad at home. He is in an undershirt and ties a necktie around his neck. Intercut takes show the tie (once tied) is longer in the back than the front. The next shot shows the back shorter than the front. Finally the tie returns to the loner-in-back appearance from the earlier shot.
