Bullitt picture

Visible crew/equipment: As Eddy stands up to go out of Enrico's restaurant with Bullitt, look at the only window that is in the shot. A short male with black hair gets past the crowd-control policeman (in a white helmet) on the sidewalk. The cop reaches out to stop him, but it is too late. The walkie-talkie in the cop's hand has a long antenna. It's quick, subtle and quite humourous.

Robocop 2 picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Robocop visits Cain's hideout and sends his car in as a decoy, after he returns to the car, watch the driving shot closely. A wire has magically strung itself across the entrance and attached itself to the back of the car - it wasn't visible from an earlier shot. As the car drives forward it stretches the horizontal wire, and just as a tiny amount of pressure is exerted, the car explodes. Yeah, it's technically a mistake, but I think it's more worth checking out just to see how those tricky effects are achieved.
