It Takes a Thief (1968)

34 mistakes

Genres: Adventure, Drama

Guess Who's Coming to Rio? - S2-E13

Audio problem: When Katrina walks out of the building at the end and crosses the street to Dover's car, the sound of her boots on the pavement doesn't match the actual movement of her feet at all.

A Thief is a Thief (a.k.a. Magnificent Thief) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When the airline pilot enters first class to announce the baggage search, we see only 7 seated passengers and many empty seats. When the angle reverses, there are instantly 15 people seated, and almost no empty places.

The Baranoff Timetable - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: Ortega takes Mundy's shoes (with lock picks hidden in the heels) and locks him up. Mundy soon has the confiscated shoes back on again, though, even before he escapes the cell.

To Catch a Roaring Lion - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: The professor translates the two Chinese symbols from Mundy's brass rubbing. Then he's shown a Chinese business card, and states that the 12 symbols on the card say the same thing. But not one of the symbols on the card matches the first two from the paper.

A Sour Note - S2-E2

Factual error: Gino commits a murder using a six-shooter with a silencer attached, and his shot doesn't make any noise. But it should have. Though it's a long-standing Hollywood cliché, a revolver with a silencer wouldn't be silent at all. Unlike automatic weapons, revolvers are open-chambered, which allows sound to escape. They can't be muffled with a silencer.

It Takes One to Know One - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Al leaves the casino floor to call Noah, he's smoking a cigarette. When he reaches into his jacket for the wallets he's just stolen, the cigarette disappears.

A Sour Note - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: During his scuffle with Gino, Mundy's hair is messed up, then neatly combs itself, then is messy again, and so on several times between takes.

A Thief is a Thief (a.k.a. Magnificent Thief) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Mundy and Claire are sitting in the car outside the apartment building, the rear view mirror has disappeared (probably removed to prevent it from obscuring the actors' faces). It mysteriously reappears later on.

Beyond a Treasonable Doubt - S3-E23

Revealing mistake: Somehow you'd think that a gadget-happy government spy agency would be capable of replacing a dead battery. The clock in the SIA HQ board room remains at 10:10 throughout the entire 5-minute interrogation scene with Mundy.

Hans Across the Border (1) - S2-E7

Visible crew/equipment: The shiny black side of Noah's limo shows us a very nice reflection of several members of the camera crew.

The Lay of the Land - S1-E16

Revealing mistake: Lori Chan picks Mundy up at the airport and proceeds to speed through town, spinning the steering wheel left, right and left again repeatedly. But the rear-screen projection behind them is showing footage from a car moving steadily in a straight line.

It Takes One to Know One - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: During the crown jewel heist, Mundy is lowered through the ceiling on a trapeze. But the stunt double is apparent in long shots. He's taller and quite a bit more muscular than Mundy is.

Beyond a Treasonable Doubt - S3-E23

Audio problem: When Mundy escapes, Devon shouts, "Stop him!" But his lips aren't moving when we hear the words shouted, and when his lips do mouth the words several seconds later, there's no sound.

Situation Red - S3-E19

Deliberate mistake: We see the Air Force plane's bomb bay doors come open. But in the next shot of the plane banking, the doors are instantly closed again.

To Lure a Man - S3-E13

Factual error: Mundy makes a phone call by wiring a radio speaker to the wall jack. Clever, but it wouldn't work. He might be able to hear dial tone, etc., but no one he called would be able to hear him without a microphone/sound pick-up, which the radio didn't have.

The Second Time Around - S3-E11

Factual error: Wally's car phone operates just fine - without the huge exterior antenna it would have required in 1969.

Flowers From Alexander - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: Sykes is drinking a beer when Nicholas knocks on the door, and he leaves the beer can on the balcony railing when he crosses to let Nicholas in. When they both walk out onto the balcony a moment later, the beer can has disappeared.

The King of Thieves - S3-E9

Audio problem: One of the perils of filming on location is employing local talent with accents too thick to be understood. Here, both the Italian actors playing the kidnappers are very obviously dubbed over.

The King of Thieves - S3-E9

Visible crew/equipment: When Madison and his political entourage walk down the hallway, the shadow of the camera precedes them, moving along the wall on the left.

Fortune City - S3-E18

Revealing mistake: The saloon's upper level railing looks solid until just before the bad guy falls through it, when the cuts in the break-away section are prominently visible.
