At about 1:05:30 into the DVD (Tyrone Power Matinee Idol Collection, Disk 5), Peter Standish says to Helen "When I kissed Kate ..." -- but he hasn't yet kissed Kate in the movie.

Perhaps there was originally a scene where Peter and Kate kissed to solidify their engagement, and that scene was cut from the final film. In any case, the absence of any such scene creates an apparent continuity blunder.
