Anachronisms 

Pianos of the period portrayed in the film were made almost entirely of wood, no metal framing at all, and the piano would therefore float, not sink.

Continuity 

When the boat leaves the island, Ada trails her hand in the water, which is still and calm. On long shots, it is foaming from the action of the oars, and the boat on the water.

Continuity 

At the end of the movie, when the piano is thrown overboard, Ada allows the long length of rope to catch her foot thus pulling her in the water after the piano. However, underwater views of Ada being dragged deeper and deeper show the length of rope to be extremely short.
