Revealing mistake: When the boat is supposedly surrounded by a swarm of flies, they're really just relatively few flies trapped between two panes of glass in front of the camera lens. Evidence: whenever the camera moves, the "swarm" moves with it against the background, and you can even see some of the insects walking on the surface of the glass.
Revealing mistake: The Thing takes a swing at the captain after the captain opens the door. As the Thing swings his arm, he takes out a chunk of wood out of the door. If you step through the frames on the DVD, you can see the wood leaving the door a full second after the Thing has hit it. A small explosive charge that was not in sync with the actor. You can also see the outline of where the wood comes off before he swings his arm. And one more thing, his arm does not touch the door or even comes close to where the wood comes off - a safety precaution I presume. (00:57:33)Larry Koehn
Revealing mistake: When the Christians are being fed to the lions, we can see that when a lion "attacks" one of the men, the man is actually smiling and visibly playing with that wild animal.
Revealing mistake: During the first shot of the rocket ship coasting through space stars can be seen through it.
Revealing mistake: When The Indians launch their final attack (towards the end of the film), on a old outpost held by a small group of soldiers, Ward Bond is hit by a arrow which enters the right side of his chest. In the next shot you see Gregory Peck removing the arrow from the left side of Ward Bond's chest.keiko
New this month Revealing mistake: When Captain Quincy Wyatt interrogates a captive Seminole Native American by threatening him with a poisonous snake, the native is safe because there is a protective piece of glass between him and the snake. The snake's reflection is quite obvious on the glass panel. (01:14:40)pandoras
Revealing mistake: When Lou and Tommy are in the car at the park, and Tommy is taking the disguise bandage off his head, a very faint outline of Tommy's head is visible under the incomplete special effect.
