Jack's Revenge
Samson and Delilah picture

Continuity mistake: In the final destruction-of-the-temple scene, the huge statue of Dagon starts to topple head first, but in later shots it is sliding towards the camera feet first. This is because director Cecil DeMille was not satisfied with the first take and had the temple re-erected then collapsed a second time. Shots from both destructions are spliced together in an exciting sequence, but rather puzzling architectually.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Jo comes home from New York and sees Beth sick on the sofa, she gives Beth a music box. Beth opens the lid to the music box and in the next shot, the camera is pulled back and Beth opens the lid again.
