Best thriller movie mistakes of 1958
Continuity mistake: In the final sequence where Dracula's foot has been disintegrated by the rays of the sun, his foot is seen firmly attached again seconds later as Van Helsing confronts him with a makeshift cross. In the scene Cushing, with his back to the camera, steps forward quickly from the foreground to cover the area where Lee's foot is briefly seen as having not been disintegrated.
Continuity mistake: In the scene towards the beginning where pair- chained interracial prison escapees Noah Cullen and Joe Jackson (Sidney Poitier and Tony Curtis) are trying to cross a river together without killing each other, they get carried away downstream and are stopped by a tree. The mistake is, Sidney Poitier's bald headed stunt double is noticeable losing control while floating downstream, visibly and audibly crashing head first into the tree. He is briefly flailing and struggling from the unexpected impact until Sidney Poitier reappears properly floating towards the tree without struggle. This mistake is less than 30 seconds and is awesomely noticeable best on Blu-Ray disc. The shot of Tony pulling Sidney out of the river concludes the scene.
