In the opening scene in the butcher shop, Marty is shown facing the camera and using a knife to cut between the bones of a roast (to make chops). He does not finish cutting all of the chops, but sets his knife down on the ledge of the counter to his right (our left). In the next shot, from the reverse angle (that is, with Marty's back to the camera), Marty again has the knife in his hand, and is cutting through the remainder of the roast. After he has finished cutting, he takes up a meat cleaver to complete the task of making chops.

Factual errors 

The opening scene shows men in a bar in the middle of the afternoon. One patron says that the Yankees won both games of a doubleheader that day. However, even in the 1950s games took about 2.5 hours to play so it is unlikely that a doubleheader would have been finished by mid-afternoon when the scene is set.
