Hamster
Our Vines Have Tender Grapes picture

Revealing mistake: In the process shot (dummy auto front seat, scenery visible in back window) where father and daughter are driving off to see the circus, Eddie G. makes a left turn and the scenery follows; but he forgets to return the steering wheel to center, even though the scenery shows the car has straightened out on the new course. Funny - even titans nod. That car should still be circling somewhere.

Factual error: This is not an error in the film itself, but in some supplementary material on the DVD, in which Margot FitzSimons, the actress who plays Bridie, is identified as the sister of Maureen O'Sullivan. She is in fact the sister of Maureen O'Hara.

House of Dracula picture

Revealing mistake: In the cave scene, when Dr. Edelman and Talbot come upon Frankenstein's monster in the mud, there is a skeleton lying beside the monster, which Dr. Edelman identifies as probably Dr. Niemann. The prop is an obvious lab skeleton, as you can very clearly see the circumferential line around the skull cap. Also, if you look closely in several shots, you can make out the hook at the top of the skull where it would hang from a lab stand.
