Revealing mistake: During the scene in Clouseau's hotel room at night, there is a light outside which shines on the net curtains to simulate moonlight. This light is off when the room lights are on, and is turned on when the room lights are turned off. At one point, when Inspector Clouseau is going into the bathroom after giving the sleeping pill to his wife, the fake moonlight suddenly turns on for no reason.

The Great Escape picture

Revealing mistake: Towards the end of the film, when Hilts (Steve McQueen) is in a motorcycle chase with the German guards, if you watch closely, when the camera cuts away from Hilts and to the German motorcyclists, you might be able to notice that one of the guards chasing McQueen IS actually McQueen! They used him to play one (or maybe more) of the guards because of the experience he had with motorcycles. This can also be seen in some behind the scenes footage on the DVD version of the film.

Revealing mistake: Most if not all of the punches thrown by everybody involved during the fight at the clay slide do not land. There are even two men fighting in the pond that appear to be slapping each other, but it looks incredibly fake.
