This is not a factual error on the part of "Polly" or the director(s) of the film. People with arthritic hands very often won't shake hands due to the unpredictability of the grip used by the other party. Squeezing the knuckles together, as is done in a handshake, can be excruciatingly painful to the arthritic and has no bearing on whether that same person might be able to lift and pour coffee from a pot.
Original post: There are inconsistencies in how Polly's arthritis is portrayed. When she introduces herself to Mr. Gaunt, she says she doesn't shake hands; later, she is unable to put on the silver charm; and the degree of her pain is frequently alluded to in dialog. However, she is shown carrying a nearly full coffee pot, carrying a cup and saucer, holding a phone receiver: a person with advanced arthritis would be unable to do any of those things.
A man buys a first edition, signed copy of Treasure Island by 'Robert Louis Stevenson', and a girl steals it. Subsequently, both refer to the title as Huck Finn by Mark Twain. The goof remains in the theatrical and TV versions, but in the video and DVD releases, his words are dubbed over to correct the mistake.
