Best thriller movie mistakes of 1965
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Ursula Andress confronts Marcello Mastroianni, he reaches into an ice bucket where you see a very small pistol (PPK). When he points it at her, it changes into (I think) a Colt 45. It then, in another angle changes again into (I think) a Mauser Parabellum... Mistakes can be made if filming covers many days on the same scene, but when the dialogue mentions how he can hide a tiny pistol in the ice bucket.....
Continuity mistake: Near the beginning when Lee Van Cleef looks at the the wanted poster on the ticket booth at Tucumcari (just after getting off the train), there are two extra zero's drawn onto the poster (as added by the villain). Van Cleef then takes this poster away with him, and slots it under the door of a hotel room on a later scene - notice that the additional zero's have since disappeared from the same poster.

Continuity mistake: James Garner figures out he's being duped, and tells Eva Marie Saint to run out of the room screaming to draw attention to herself. She does and there's a shot of her on the hospital lawn with staff all around her. The next shot is James Garner looking out the window to see what their reaction is, and Eva Marie Saint can be seen behind him in the room.
Other mistake: FBI Agent Kelso believes a cat may be able to lead him to the location of a kidnapped bank teller. He has four other men trying to follow the cat. When Agent Cahill reports that he is stationed "west of Whittier Street," Kelso sticks an identifying pin on a large map but he puts the pin in a location east of Whittier Street.
