It Came from Outer Space pictureIt Came from Outer Space mistake picture

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). (00:00:20 - 00:03:50)

The War of the Worlds picture

Visible crew/equipment: After the demonstration at the blackboard, the big group of soldiers walk over to the big table with the picture of the world on it. As they walk away from the blackboard, they turn and walk down some steps, and as they do you can see the shadow of a boom mic pole on the upper side of the grey part of the wall. (00:55:40)

Calamity Jane picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Calamity and Katie are driving back on the stage they are attacked by Indians before they arrive in town. Calamity starts shooting at them from behind the large suitcase with Adellaid Adams wrote on it. Initially there is no mark on the suitcase but halfway through the scene a black mark appears below the D of Adellaid and if you look very closely you can see the piece of string along which the arrow is shot.
