Goofs

  • The night they take the priest to the club, Tony starts dancing solo (to the song "You Should Be Dancing") and the dance floor clears. His dance partner Connie (the woman in the green dress) is stood up by the stage and standing in place, as are the rest of the dancers off the dance floor as they watch him dance. The lady in the green dress briefly disappears and reappears between shots.
