Continuity: After Ken reverses the steamroller after running Otto over with it, you can see a red patch signifying his splattered body in front of the roller. However, a few scenes later, Otto is seen alive. (Otto was originally meant to die, until test audience feedback influenced a change of mind on the part of the filmmakers.)
Continuity: When Archie dances with Wanda at the flat, they stop and you see Wanda put her hands around Archie's neck. The camera angle changes and her hands are now on his shoulders. The camera angle changes again and her hands are back around his neck. Happens about 3 times during the entire scene. There is even a time when only one hand is on his shoulder.
Continuity: When one of the robbers finds the box of diamonds that they are looking for, he is seen taking 1 envelope out of the box, pushing the box to the side, and opening the envelope on the table. The camera angle changes to a close up and he is seen opening the envelope on top of the box containing all the other envelopes.
Plot hole: It's a beautifully staged bit of physical comedy but Otto pulls out his gun, flips it through the air past the airport metal detector and catches it on the other side ... in full view of dozens of customs and immigration officers and civilians in the queue behind him. Even back then the area would have been festooned with CCTV cameras. What, not one person saw someone carrying a large, powerful handgun through airport security?
