Best fantasy movie mistakes of 1961

Mysterious Island picture

Factual error: It is barely credible that a young Victorian woman like Elena would even think about wearing a goatskin miniskirt - exposing her legs in those days would be akin to walking about topless nowadays. Even if she did those bright yellow cotton knickers - gleefully visible in the scene in the beehive - are in no way from the 1860s. Her pants are a hundred years ahead of their time.

The Absent Minded Professor picture

Continuity mistake: The police that come to the aid of the professor are driving an older Ford when they approach than when they arrive to help. The car is a newer model in the later scene.

Babes in Toyland picture

Audio problem: As Tom and Mary exit a home that faces the town square, the sound of applause is heard even though almost all the townspeople are holding glasses of lemonade and nobody is clapping.
