When Mary paints the star on the driver's side of Jack's car, the right point of the star is imperfect as she throws the brush to the ground. When Jack turns around to see the design, it is perfectly done. Jack then walks to the front of the car and as Mary leans on it, you can partially see on the upper left hood that the same designed is already painted on the passenger's side.
A version played at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on May 15 and 16, 2003, was restored, with fewer scratches, color tintings, and an orchestral score with sound effects.
