M*A*S*H mistake picture

Love Story - S1-E14

Visible crew/equipment: After Radar tells Margaret that she's needed in the post-op ward Frank sneaks toward Margaret's tent, and when it cuts to Margaret walking into post-op, at the start of the shot we can see the two actors' curved chalk foot marks on the floor.

Chief Surgeon Who? - S1-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When General Barker opens the doors to Henry's office and finds Radar sitting behind the desk, we can see Barker's curved chalk foot marks on the floor beside the desk, where the actor will stand in a moment.

To Market, to Market - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Radar walks into Henry's office to tell him that there's a general there to see him, we get a good view of Henry's new desk and its beautiful ornate design, but later when Hawkeye and Trapper are carrying the desk and then it's lifted out by chopper it's a completely different desk - also note that this desk has casters.

The Bus - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: The "KILROY" Hawkeye writes on the window as BJ looks out was in the center with his fingertip. Later, as Hawkeye looks out, the "KILROY" is now closer to the frame, and the lettering is different, a small capital A in front of it, and lines above and below it.

Aid Station - S3-E19

Visible crew/equipment: As Hawkeye walks into the Aid Station, the shadow of the camera plays across his entrance. Also, the area he walks through is extremely well lit, despite the fact the sun is behind the station, indicating stage lighting.

Adam's Ribs - S3-E11

Revealing mistake: As Radar, Henry, Klinger and Trapper get up to answer the emergency call, the outside background can be seen in the upper right corner of the shot, showing it was done on a sound stage.

M*A*S*H - The Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: After Frank picks up the still, his hands alternate from left hand above right to right hand above left between angles.

Movie Nut

Hawkeye - S4-E18

Plot hole: When Hawkeye wrecks his jeep on his way back from an aid station, he has a Korean girl take a message to the 4077th, which he claims is 20 miles south. However, in virtually every episode, it is claimed that the 4077th is located 4 miles from the front lines.

Rally Round the Flagg, Boys - S7-E21

Revealing mistake: As Charles leaves the Mess Tent, you can see the camo net where there normally is none, and the background abruptly ends about 20 feet from the end of the building.

Movie Nut

The Sniper - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: At the picnic, the basket is sitting with the end towards the camera, and bottle of liquor in it. Before the first shot from the sniper, the basket is sideways, and the bottle in front towards the camera on the ground.

Show generally

Factual error: In one episode in the hospital tent, Hawkeye hands a Hershey Chocolate Bar to a wounded soldier lying in bed. The back of the candy bar had a Universal Product Code (UPC) on it. UPCs were not used until the 1970s.

Bombed - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: When Margaret asks Frank for cash to help her sister get an apartment, he asks about her father leaving her anything, implying that her father is dead. Later on, we see her father when he comes to visit her in another episode.

Movie Nut

The Kids - S4-E8

Plot hole: When the truck with the orphans arrives, Col. Potter and Nurse Cratty greet each other like one would an old friend. Being new to Korea, Col. Potter doesn't know Nurse Cratty - as becomes clear from his reaction to Hawkeye's explanation to BJ earlier (who doesn't know Nurse Cratty for the same reason, but that's not relevant for this mistake). Note that in other parts of the series Col. Potter is depicted mostly as somewhat old-fashioned and reserved towards strangers.

Doc

Show generally

Factual error: Throughout the series, actors are seen wearing cuffless permapress fatigues. Neither cuffless nor permapress utilities were available until the 1970s.

Abyssinia, Henry - S3-E24

Continuity mistake: When Henry kisses Margret, she grabs her hat. In the reverse shot, her hand is around Henry's neck. After the next cut, it's on her hat again.

Doc

What's Up, Doc? - S6-E19

Plot hole: When Hawkeye and BJ buy Margaret a new ring, it takes a typo in the inscription to give them away - which makes both of them and Mr. Shin almost clairvoyant. Not only did they somehow guess Margaret's ring size, but Mr Shin - phew, Houdini and Uri Geller together don't hold a candle to this guy - actually somehow divined the exact type and font of the inscription in the original so perfectly that Margaret actually only spotted the difference from the missing 'n.'

Doc

Dear Ma - S4-E16

Plot hole: In this episode, Maj. Burns is trying to avoid the foot inspection because he has nail polish on his toenails. Having access to a fully outfitted hospital dispensory, he'd be able to remove that nail polish in a minute.

Doc

Images - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: When Cpl. Hendrix is examined on the operating table, Klinger and Hawkeye admire his tattoos. Klinger asks "do you really think the real Louise is built like that?" and Hawkeye replies, "If she is, I'm in love". Later, when Radar talks to Hendrix, Radar says, "Her face is still pretty, and her legs are the greatest." Hendrix asks, "What about the rest of her?" and Radar replies, "There isn't any." How could Hawkeye and Klinger admire Louise's build if the tattoo was that shot up?

Bulletin Board - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: First, Radar is seen drumming on his tin cans with bare hands. After cut, when the hula girl appears, without interruption of the drum pattern, he suddenly is holding some sort of drumsticks.

Deluge - S4-E23

Factual error: Nearing the end of the show, we are told that the Chinese have become involved in the conflict and have attacked with some 300,000 soldiers. This apparently refers to massive attacks by the Chinese starting on November 1, 1950. Although the numbers are correct, the US/UN forces were unaware of the numbers. As late as November 6, the Far East Command continued to insist that there were no more than 34,500 Chinese communist soldiers in country. http://www.history.army.mil/brochures/kw-chinter/chinter.htm.
