Best movie mistakes of 1964
Continuity mistake: There is a scene in the movie where the Beatles enter a limousine, I believe at the beginning of the movie. In this particular scene the Beatles are all dressed in suits and ties, but when the Beatles are filmed in the limo, John Lennon is wearing a turtle neck sweater beneath a blazer.
Continuity mistake: When Dr. Morrissey comes to George and Judy's house on Sunday night after the fishing trip to bring them some fish, he sits down on the couch and removes his glasses. Then, in the next shot, his glasses are back on again. He wouldn't have had time to put his glasses back on.
Revealing mistake: Near the beginning, Hengist and Horsa are watching a young cave couple dragging each other around. Hengist is pouring Horsa a drink and you can see him pour, raise the jug, then Horsa takes a sip from his cup. All this time it is patently obvious that no liquids are in the vessels.
Continuity mistake: At Molly's party after returning from Europe, the Duchess is introduced, and everyone bows. The shot shows Molly reaching for her neighbor who's standing straight, to bow down, and she does. Then there is a long shot showing the crowd, and the neighbor is again standing, and then you see Molly reach out for her again as she just had.

Continuity mistake: When Marlon Brando's character demands 20% of the con game proceeds, David Niven points at him with a cigar he holds in his left hand. But when the shot cuts to a different angle, Niven's hands are both instantly in his robe pockets, and the cigar has disappeared.
Continuity mistake: About 25 minutes into the film, Vincent Price puts two vampire bodies into the back of his station wagon. Viewed from the open rear door, the woman is on the right side face up and the man is on the left side face down, and he drives off to the pit. In the next scene, he parks the car at the pit and when he goes to unload the bodies, the woman is now on the left side face down and the man is one the right side face up. For people who have died and then been killed again, they sure did move around a lot in the back of that car.
Continuity mistake: In the train yard scene when Le Biche and Colonel Von Windheim are watching for the trains to switch to the right tracks a pipe is tossed onto a chair and tobacco spills out, but when the camera is panned away and comes back the tobacco is nowhere to be seen.
