Errors and ExplanationsEdit

Internet Movie DatabaseEdit


  • When Mr Grainger takes relief in the fact "We've got our own counters back", you can clearly see that he is not wearing his glasses as they are, presumably, still in Mrs Slocombe's handbag. But when young Mr Grace says that the men's department will be re-decorated, Mr Grainger complains and his glasses suddenly re-appear on his face. He could have acquired a spare pair from somewhere.
