Best horror movie mistakes of 1953

The War of the Worlds picture

Continuity mistake: When Sylvia and Dr. Forrester are in the farm house, Sylvia cooks some eggs, then places the plates of eggs on the table. As she places them down you can see a plate with toast stacked on it. This plate disappears in the next shot of them both sitting down.

Visible crew/equipment: Opening credits (also a few minutes in) has a fiery spaceship crashing into the camera for this was a 3D movie. What's interesting is that a mirror can be seen on the left portion of the screen just before the collision. This was apparent at the theatres and on the VHS tape release. For some reason, the DVD release has it cropped out and now the spaceship is off-centered at the beginning (fortunately the bonus material still shows it).

The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the star and the professor's assistant are discussing what type of beast was involved in the attack, they are having sandwiches and coffee. One shot shows her front and his back, the next shot shows his front and her back. As the conversation and shots go back and forth, she's holding a sandwich in one and a coffee cup in the other. This happens numerous times and there is no lull in the conversation that would allow the switch.

Revealing mistake: In the beginning where Vincent Price is brawling with his business partner, his partner throws a pipe or bar at him. Price ducks and the bar hits something that the camera was connected to, because the scene jerks.
