Continuity mistake: When Snoopy arrives at the Halloween party, he slides down a set of curtains and then hides behind those curtains. In the same shot, Lucy approaches a tub of water atop which five apples are floating. When the shot changes, there are only four apples floating in the tub and Snoopy has now somehow gotten into the tub and is hiding under the water. The action is constant. How did Snoopy get from behind the curtain to under the water? (00:18:30)Professor Zed
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)Mark Pitta 1
Continuity mistake: When Peter O'Toole is locked in the closet at the museum, he puts a rope through the keyhole and uses a hook to pull it under the door. In the first shot, from outside the closet, the end of the rope is to the right. In the next shot, from inside the closet, the end of the rope slides under the door to the left. (01:22:30)
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.
Revealing mistake: All four of the Dachshunds in this story are supposed to be female. During one part of the picture, when they jump on the bed with Suzanne, you can see that at least one is male.
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.
