Lawless picture

Audio problem: In the scene where Jack Bondurant is loading jars into the back of the truck, Floyd Banner is driven into town and screeches to a halt nearby.

Cannibal! The Musical picture

Audio problem: The original audio track for the saloon scene towards the end was accidentally lost during filming. Because the film was largely ad-libbed, not all of the lines could be recalled when the scene was dubbed in post production. As a result, lip movement is matched rather poorly to the audio.
