Continuity mistake: In this scene we see John Wayne and others milking goats. The goats then get startled by a baby elephant and Wayne falls backwards on to the ground and you can see he takes the bowl with his right hand and the milk is thrown out of the bowl. In the next shot of him close up the bowl is on his head like a helmet when the bowl never even went on his head as he fell backwards. (01:09:20)
Continuity mistake: After Bond gets picked up from the airport, evades a car, then fights with the driver, at one point he pulls back his right arm, but then the angle changes, and he hits him with his left one. (00:20:20)
Continuity mistake: The shadows in the scene with Lawrence sleeping on his camel are short because it's the middle of the day. In the next shot you see long shadows on the sand. When Ali wakes up Lawrence they are short again. (01:01:41)
Continuity mistake: When the guy is in the mountains he burns some of the triffids at the fence and you can clearly see them frying. But when the camera pans across the garden later, there are still triffids, but they are all fire-free and there are no bodies.

Continuity mistake: As Shirley Jones is singing "In love with Me" at one point, she's sitting down, and is slouching back. The shot changes to the side, and she's sitting up straight, and is much higher against the counter than she was. Her hands have changed position as well, she's no longer holding onto the cup she had in her left hand. (01:19:55)
Continuity mistake: Mary gets out of her car at the gas station wearing white shoes, but when she is being shown her room at the boarding house by Mrs Thomas she is wearing black shoes. This also happens at other times during the film, where Mary's shoes change from white to black and vice-versa.
Continuity mistake: Partway through the film, the car the principal characters are driving changes brand, between Peugeot and Mercedes.

Continuity mistake: When Jack is aboard the boat at the end of the film, the dragon drops a rock into the water. The water splashes into the boat soaking everyone. The front of Princess Elane's dress is wet, but in the next couple of shots it is completely dry.

Continuity mistake: Approximately 46 minutes into the film, Robert Preston is testing a new bullwhip. The whip is in his left hand as he brings his arm back and cracks the whip. He brings the left arm back for a second crack, and the shot changes to a closer angle just as he brings the whip down, only now it is suddenly in his right hand and not the left. The editing, the sound effect, the arm swing all seem perfectly coordinated, except that the whip changed hands between camera set-ups.
Continuity mistake: During the close-up in the small boat when Elvis and his date go ashore at the plantation, his sailboat has been anchored a long distance from shore. In the aerial view, his sailboat is much closer to the dock.
Continuity mistake: As an unconscious member of the captured American patrol is being carried on a stretcher to a Russian helicopter, his helmet falls off the stretcher onto the ground. In the very next shot, the soldier's helmet is now not only on his head, it is tightly strapped to his chin.
