We Dive at Dawn picture

Continuity mistake: When John Mills is looking through the periscope whilst searching for the German battleship the side view shows him moving the periscope from right to left, but when it suddenly cuts to a shot of what he is actually seeing through it the periscope is strangely moving from left to right.

Sahara picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the tank crew meet up with the weary band of soldiers, Fred Clarkson (Lloyd Bridges) has a very distinctive graze on the right side of his forehead. It seems to disappear then appear then disappear during the film. When Clarkson lies injured there is no sign of the graze - there should at least be a small mark of the graze but there is nothing.

Continuity mistake: In this scene we see Tarzan holding the prison guard in a neck hold. Before rendering the guard unconscious, the guard manages to throw the keys to the cell which falls near a wall. In the next long shot of the gaol we see the keys have moved closer to the guard.

Tarzan Triumphs picture

Revealing mistake: In this scene we see Cheetah jumping down from a tree to the ground. In the next shot we see Cheetah and a circle of light moves, which indicates they were using a mirror or even a light for extra lighting to brighten up the shot. This happens very briefly and is very noticeable.
