Best drama movie mistakes of 1950

The Asphalt Jungle picture

Continuity mistake: Doc Riedenschneider calls on Cobby in a dark hallway with brick walls and a door in the end with a half-open transom. Through this door, in the adjacent room, there are several gangsters seated a table. They go down the hallway and enter this room. In the next scene they have entered and the seated gangsters are suddenly no longer there. Nor is there a transom over the door. The hallway viewed from this room has white walls now instead of brick.

Sunset Blvd. picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Joe Gillis returns to the mansion, after Betty Schaefer has just revealed her love towards him, when he enters his room, you can see a hand wearing a watch in the mirror. (01:26:50)

All About Eve picture

Other mistake: A glass is dropped which had drink and one ice cube in it, however two ice cubes are picked up from the spillage.

Destination Moon picture

Factual error: Between Earth and the Moon the crew of the spacecraft have an EVA in which they walk on the ship's metal hull with magnetic boots. At one point an astronaut inadvertently slips both boots off the hull and drifts off into space, helpless. There is a long shot of him drifting away in which his body spontaneously spins around 180 degrees and then stops rotating, which is all a violation of conserved angular momentum.

Visible crew/equipment: You can see Dean Stockwell's harness and guide wire when Kim is hauled off the ledge and up the cliffside.

Three Came Home picture

Revealing mistake: In this scene we see Claudette Colbert and her husband talking. In the background it's obvious the ocean scene is a stage prop, the waves in the sea don't move at all.

Harvey picture

Continuity mistake: When Wilson comes to the house looking for Elwood, as he says to Myrtle Mae Simmons "Now where's he?" his cigar is in his mouth. However, in the next shot, he is now holding the cigar in his left hand, placing it into his mouth as he asks "Where did you put him?"

Cheaper by the Dozen picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Mr. Gilbert is going to the train station, as he walks around in front of his car, you can see the shadow of the boom mic on the lawn, to the left side of the screen. (01:18:15)

Bright Leaf picture

Plot hole: When major Singleton challenges Brant Royle to a duel with single shot pitons, he fires one pistol, and leaves the other pistol on the bar. He then goes into his carriage and shoots himself. He only has the pistol that has already been fired.

The Wooden Horse picture

Factual error: When the two escapees from the POW camp are in the anchor room of the ship they are on, they leave the harbour and the pilot boat leaves them, but then the chain for the anchor goes out, but they are moving away from the port, why on earth would they be dropping the anchor? If anything they would make sure that all the chain is in the anchor room and the anchor would be on deck.
