Anachronisms 

The movie is set in 1845 and mentions "evolution" of humans from apes. The concept was not absolutely original with Darwin, who published it in 1859, but the words "evolve" and "evolution" were not applied to it before then.

Character error 

When Dr. Mirakle takes away the Woman of the Streets, Arlene Francis is very clearly laughing before she and Legosi go off camera when she's supposed to be either sobbing or distressed. She covers her mouth after a few seconds of laughing. Bela is also smiling.

Revealing mistakes

During the sequence in which the gorilla carries the girl across the rooftops, a few of the shots make it very clear that he's holding a stiff-necked female mannequin and not a real person.
