Across the Pacific

At the point where they are traveling from Halifax to New York and are topside getting some sun, Greenstreet asks Bogart if he has ever been to Manila, the boat's final destination. Bogart replies, "Never been further than Hawaii". Yet, a few minutes later, he states that "the Japs or whoever can have the Philippines as far as I'm concerned -- it's hot in Manila". He states this personally, as if he knows how hot it is in Manila from his own experiences. [Contributed by John McCullough]

When Rick and Alberta first get settled into the Genoa Maru, the doors to their cabins have port holes. This is illustrated when Rick is talking to Dr. Lorenz about Alberta outside her door, and Alberta sticks her head out of the port hole and tells him to talk about her somewhere else. And also, when Rick is in his bed on the first night, and a ghostly Japanese face lit from below appears in the port hole of his door, glowering at him. For the rest of the movie, however, the doors to the cabins are louvered, and they have no port holes. [Contributed by Michelle Primeaux]

The cabin doors of the Genoa Maru were always louvered.›Each one of the passenger cabins did have a porthole to the outside of the ship, with a walkway outside these portholes.› In the two scenes that Michelle pointed out the bloopers, when Rick and Dr. Lorenz are standing outside a porthole to Alberta's cabin, and when Rick is in bed and a ghostly Japanese face appears at his porthole, the›portholes are not on the cabin doors, but on the outside of the ship.› I have watched this film over a dozen times, and this is very apparent.› Camera angles bare this out, as the louvered, cabin doors are always to the right of the screen, and the porthole shots are always to the left.

Extra wing rockets on the jet change size and even vanish and reappear before they are eventually dropped off.

China Clipper

Bogart brings his airplane in over the water, which has acquired wheels as it rolls up out of the water.
According to Rick Hayhoe, this is not a blooper at all:
Please note that seaplanes almost always have, and have had in the past, landing gear allowing them to make regular airport landings as well as water landings, and to simplify their removal to hangars for maintenance and repair.

The China Clippers, the various models of them, were no exception. By way of readily available proof, if you will go here, you will find record of one accident involving the collapse of a Clipper's landing gear during an airport landing. You will also find that some of the reported accidents happened during landing or takeoff from airports, rather than water. The value of flying boats at the beginning of long-distance, ocean crossing commercial aviation was due to the fact that they could carry passengers, mail and cargo into remote places where no airports were available.

If you will look around, you will find old photos of Clippers taxiing up ramps out of the water to their hangars or being worked on while sitting just out of the water, on their own landing gear. They were capable of lowering their landing gear while in the water in order to taxi out of it. They did not land on water with the landing gear deployed for the obvious reason that to do so would have caused damage or a full-scale crash due to the extremely poor hydrodynamics of the gear.

After Bogart tells O'Brien he's leaving, he walks out of the room, through the doorway, leaving O'Brien behind him inside the room. When we see Bogart finish walking through the door into the hall, O'Brien is to Bogart's right, and already in the hall.
