Character error 

When Philo is retelling his re-enacted version of the crime, he says Brisbane removed the revolver from the drawer, then he pointed the revolver and shot Archer. All good except for the fact it was not a revolver. It was an automatic pistol. A revolver has a round cylinder that holds the bullets, and revolves as you fire it.

Continuity 

When Philo Vance opens the closet door, a dead Brisbane Coe falls out and his hat rolls away from his head. But on the close-up shot of the dead body immediately after, the hat is back on Brisbane's head. Then on the next shot which is of Brisbane and the servant, the hat is once again off his head.

Factual errors 

The desk Sergeant taking the call at the station house about Archer Coe is wearing stripes, but has a patrolman's badge on. The Sergeant's badge is a different shape and larger.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

The police break down the door to get to the body in the study. The next day Philo demonstrates how the door was locked from the outside after the murder, but the door showed no signs of being broken and it is unrealistic to expect it to be fixed so quickly.

Plot holes 

It's never explained where Philo gets the detailed models of the buildings involved in his explanation of this theory of the crime.
