South Pacific picture

Other mistake: In the opening scene on the airplane, one of the men tells Lt. Cable, "The captain wants to know if you'd like to sit up in the cockpit with him?" Buzz Adams, the "captain" referenced in this line, is only a lieutenant. Admittedly, "captain" is a standard aviation term for the pilot of an aircraft, but it would be unlikely to be used in this situation, since the term has a specific military meaning.

Horror of Dracula picture

Other mistake: After Van Helsing realises Dracula's coffin is in the cellar of Michael Gough's house, he hears a scream and runs to find the housekeeper Gerda overwrought and hysterical. He needs to find out where Dracula has just gone, and so he gives her a slap. It's hilarious how loud the sound of this is.
