Aragog was falsely accused by Tom Riddle for the Petrification of many students before the death of Moaning Myrtle. Acromantula are not known to be able to induce petrification, marking this as another lack of insight of the justice system of the Ministry of Magic, as they fail to notice the discrepancy.
I can't let you out, Hedwig! I'm not allowed to use magic outside of school. Besides, if Uncle Vernon...
Uncle Vernon: Harry Potter!
Harry: Now you've done it.
(at around 2h 15 mins) When Harry starts destroying Tom Riddle by drilling his diary with the Basilisk's tooth, Riddle is visible acting with two empty hands. In the next two shots featuring him, he is obviously holding Harry's wand in his right hand. Afterwards, his hands are empty again, when in the final shot, where Tom disappears completely, the wand is lying on the floor beside Dumbledore's hat.
At the end of the credits we see what happened to the amnesia-suffering Professor Gilderoy Lockhart. He has written a book titled "Who Am I?". His moving image on the book's cover wears a straitjacket, and hums the movie's theme tune.
To retain a vital anagram in different languages, the full name of Tom M. Riddle has been changed in most non-English versions, sometimes even quite drastically. In German, for instance, his name is Tom Vorlost Riddle (surprisingly close to the original, considering the vastly different language), in Swedish it's Tom Gus Mervolo Dolder, and in Icelandic it's Trevor Delgome(!), which sacrifice the "riddle" wordplay altogether.
