** Funnily enough, the expression "grotty" was actually invented by the film's screenwriter Alun Owen. It ended up catching on in real life after the film was released.

* GratuitousFrench: To mark Le Cercle Club as a classy gambling establishment, the croupier and waiter speak French instead of English. Grandad [=McCartney=], however, can't speak the language at all, so he answers the croupier's question of "Alors, monsieur?" ("[Well] then, sir?") with "Soufflé!" (an egg-based baked dish for which English simply borrows the French word), and answers the waiter's question "Encore de champagne, monsieur?" ("More champagne, sir?") with "Oh yeah, and I'll have some more champagne as well!" He also repeatedly says [[{{Malapropism}} "Bingo!"]] instead of the baccarat term "Banco" (for "banker", "Punto" referring to the player).

* LensFlare: During "And I Love Her," as the camera turns to Paul's silhouette in a stagelight.[[note]] United Artists executives who saw the scene were convinced it was a mistake and asked producer Walter Shenson about it; Shenson replied that they had spent all morning trying to get the lens flare effect right.[[/note]]

* APartyAlsoKnowsAsAnOrgy: The Beatles, confined to their hotel suite, discover Paul's grandfather has borrowed an old waiter's formal clothes and gone out to a gambling club. Paul, anxious about it, concludes "He's probably in the middle of some orgy by now!" They all react with excitement at the idea and rush out to find him.

* DigeticSwitch: The Beatles play cards in an isolated part of the train while schoolgirls watch them. "I Should Have Known Better" begins to play, and as the singing is heard, Paul starts lip-synching. Next thing you see are the Beatles already playing with their instruments to the rest of the song until their card game's over.

* HolyLight: Two instances. In the first "Can't Buy Me Love" when The Beatles first break out of the TV studio and into the field, they get backlit by the sun as they clamber downstairs. And Paul gets this for a second or two, via a stage light, near the end of the "And I Love Her" segment... WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic
