Visible crew/equipment: At the beginning of the big party sequence, there is a beautiful swooping crane shot that ends by tracking in on a big picture window. Unfortunately, the window is set in a deep frame on the side of which you can clearly see the shadow of the camera and camera operator.
Factual error: The aliens request a meeting with Dr. Marvin on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay, near Washington DC. However, the shot of him driving along the shore line shows mountains in the background, which don't exist in Eastern Maryland. (00:35:13)
Continuity mistake: When Luz is talking to Jet on the phone for the first time, from the front she's fiddling with the phone cord with her left hand. When it cuts to the reverse, however, her hand is flat on the desk.
Continuity mistake: When they are dancing the king's earring is on his left ear then it somehow jumps across to the other ear.
Continuity mistake: In the final shot, just as the credits are rolling, the British warships are sailing away with the sun setting behind them. In an earlier scene the radio commentator says that the sun is setting and a shot of the sun touching the surface of the sea is shown.
Revealing mistake: A couple cross the road to enter Victoria Coach Station, London. There is the noise of a coach braking hard and they throw themselves away from a coach just inside the entrance, which obviously was not moving at the time. They walk into the station and talk to an inspector, while the same coach is driven out of the entrance past where it is supposedly parked.
Continuity mistake: Near the end, Eddie knocks down a thug who tries to stop him from putting Toro into a cab. The man's hat falls off and lands on the concrete. He gets up as the cab drives away, then turns to retrieve the hat, which has now moved itself off the sidewalk and into the bushes.
Factual error: The movie takes place in the early 20th century (1910s or 1920s or so). When Dean and Jerry are riding in a RR cattle car with its doors open you can clearly see parked automobiles from the 1950s through the open door of the train car.
Visible crew/equipment: At the climax, when the creature escapes and begins throwing furniture around, you can clearly see the wires attached to the pieces of furniture.
