∙ Dr. Jekyll is late for a dinner party with Beatrix and her family. When he sits down at the table, he mentions he had started working on something and lost track of time. In the far view of the table, he picks up a cup with his right hand and starts to drink. It cuts to a closer view and he’s holding his fork and knife.

∙ After Mr. Hyde pushes the man over the railing at the bar, a brawl ensues. Another man in a top hat comes along yelling “stop it” and in the view of him and Hyde, Mr. Hyde’s arms are by his side with his cane in his right hand. It cuts to a close-up and Hyde is holding the cane in front of him in both hands.

∙ CAUTION: May Contain Spoilers! When Hyde is running from the apartment after attacking Ivy, he runs toward a horse and carriage. The driver is yelling “whoa” and in the back view of Hyde, his hat can be seen falling from his head. It cuts to a close-up of Hyde as he rounds the corner and the hat is on his head.

∙ CAUTION: May Contain Spoilers! When the detectives show Dr. Lanyon the weapon a.k.a. the end of Dr. Jekyll’s / Mr. Hyde’s cane, he’s holding the handle of the cane upward and turns it over in his hand where the broken / splintered end is up. It cuts to a further view and Lanyon is holding the curved part in his other hand and the broken part is pointed down.
