Best romance movie mistakes of 1958

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.

The Big Country picture

Revealing mistake: When McKay and Ramon are riding into Blanco Canyon to rescue Julie, you can see a diesel loading shovel with its bucket raised in the bottom of the frame of one of the scenic shots. Presumably the scene was shot in a quarry and they didn't get all the equipment out.

Visible crew/equipment: When Isabel Jeans is telephoned by Madame Alvarez and told that Gigi has refused Gaston's advances, she gets out of bed and walks across the bedroom.

Revealing mistake: In the opening credits, Richard Widmark is driving a car with Doris Day in the passenger seat. Widmark does not turn the steering wheel, even though the rear-screen projection shows him going around a curve.
