Best action movie mistakes of 1966

Batman picture

Continuity mistake: When the Batmobile is going to park (before the bomb scene) there is a sign saying "Mobey Dick Parking Only". When he is later carrying the bomb and passes by the Batmobile the sign is not there.

The Blue Max picture

Other mistake: The movie concludes with George Peppard crashing a test monoplane. The shot is from James Mason's office, looking out over the airfield. We hear the sound of the diving plane, but do not see it. After the camera has been focused on the field for a few seconds, we see a large explosion, which is meant to represent the crashing plane. The falling plane is missing. From the position of the shot, we should have seen the crashing plane.

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.

El Dorado picture

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.

Deliberate mistake: When Raza is chasing the "empty" train, as it goes over the trestle just before he stops it, you can see the engineer in the train's engine.

Night Train to Mundo Fine picture

Audio problem: During the chase at the end of the movie, the police cars' tires squeal in the dirt.

The Silencers picture

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.

Carry On Don't Lose Your Head picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Charles Hawtrey "jumps" onto the light near the end of the film you can see the strings pulling him across. The same can be seen with Jim Dale as well.

Fireball 500 picture

Factual error: Racer Dave Owens goes down to an unspecified Southern state to race and becomes a moonshine runner. However, the Dodge he drives in his illicit activities possesses California plates, as does the Plymouth driven by the IRS agents.

Assault on a Queen picture

Revealing mistake: In this scene we see Frank Sinatra in a diving suit and helmet being lowered into the sea to look for a sunken submarine. As he is being lowered you can see the sun's reflection on the walls of a tank, meaning it was filmed in a large tank of water.
