When Becky visits Mary at the hospital, Amber is combing her hair and a chunk falls out. Amber places the chunk back on Mary's crown. When Becky enters, Mary is suddenly wearing a tiara and the chunk of hair is hanging in front of her nightgown. There wouldn't have been time for Amber to have picked up the tiara from the dresser and fixed her hair.

At the end of Amber's tap act, she pulls off her hat to show hair that had been smashed under the hat falling around her face. When we see her again, her hair is neat and tidy, in loose curls.

Miscellaneous
