Grand Prix picture

Continuity mistake: The cars change shape frequently during the movie. That depends on the fact that many scenes were filmed at real races, with real F-1 cars. The cars that the actors drove were, for the most part, disguised F-3 racers. There are at least three fake Ferraris, and they all look different. One of them seems to have been built to resemble a 1965 F-1, but altered to look like a 1966 model. The non-existent Yamura (built to resemble a Maclaren), that James Garner drives is actually two cars with different chassis, one of them seems to be used very little, except when it catches fire in a scene.

Animalympics picture

Continuity mistake: When Boris Amphibiensky fails his high jump attempt during track and field, one of the bar's ends sticks to the post while the other reaches down to the ground. But the bar's length is only about an eighth of the posts' height, which is more than 77 feet, so the one end shouldn't reach the ground while the other still hangs on to the post's top.
