When Arthur's father arrives just as he is leaving for the art exhibition, the camera hits a large vase of orange flowers as it moves to the right, causing them to flutter and move.

Bunbury is also a never-seen character in "The Importance of Being Earnest", the play which is performed in the background of several scenes of this film.
