Goofs

In a scene in the middle of the story, when the Green Hornet and Kato visit Low Sing and Slate to suggest a prisoner exchange, Kato and Low Sing square off in kung fu stances. First, in a medium shot, Low Sing's right hand is more or less straight out and at chest level; the camera then cuts to a close shot in which the same hand is at shoulder level and cocked; then the camera cuts back to the medium shot in which the hand is again straight and level with his chest.
