Fantastic Voyage picture

Plot hole: Even if the white blood cells will attack and destroy the sub and the body of doctor Martin the atoms would still remain and take normal size after the critical 1 hour is up. This would also apply for the laser gun which they forgot or left behind on purpose.

Audio problem: When we see the can-can dancers perform on-stage, the music is played by a full band including brass and drums, despite the fact that there's only a pianist on-stage. (00:22:10)

The Blue Max picture

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Jeremy Kemp and George Peppard are playing daredevil in their planes and Kemp's plane hits a brick tower there is a shot of the plane plummeting to the ground. The alert viewer can see the shiny metal wires that were used to support and guide the plane on its way to the ground.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly picture

Other mistake: In the very last scene of the movie, and just before Blondie shoots the rope that is holding Tuco on the grave's cross. You can see a car moving in the background, screen right of Tuco's head.

Torn Curtain picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Paul Newman takes Julie Andrews up a small hill to explain that he is not going to work for East Germany you can see a shot from a distance. It is clear that this scene was done in a studio, as you can see several lights above the blue background (which is supposed to be the blue sky).

Continuity mistake: In the final scene at the sheriff's office, Mitchum has his feet up on the table top, and the boot soles are clean. But after Wayne walks out, there is suddenly a spot on a boot sole. (This is visible in the video)

Our Man Flint picture

Revealing mistake: Near the end of the film when a building is collapsing and people are running to escape the falling debris, several women along with James Coburn are running up some stairs; a block of cement falls and hits actress Gina Golan right in the head. Instead of killing her on the spot, the bolder merely bounces off her head and she continues running up the stairs. (01:40:55)

The Naked Prey picture

Revealing mistake: Although "Man" is supposed to be completely naked, there are several shots where his flesh-colored briefs are visible. Most noticeable when he is initially set loose to be chased.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas! picture

Continuity mistake: At the end when the sled full of Christmas stuff is on the mountaintop, it starts sliding off the edge. It's going fast enough that it should be long gone by the time the Grinch reaches it, but when he does it's still right near the top of the mountain.

Factual error: In the scene near the end of the film where Victor Buono is sitting in his chamber addressing his two captives, he opens a can labeled egg foo young with a can opener. He pours the liquid contents into a bowl. Egg foo young is an omelet and could not have passed through the small holes made with a can opener.
