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.

Revealing mistake: Near the beginning, Montag puts on the fireproof clothing to use the flamethrower. It's really footage of him later taking off the same equipment played in reverse.

Continuity mistake: On the airplane, Rock Hudson takes a pillow from the stewardess, and puts it behind his head. They cut away to the stewardess, and back to Hudson, and the pillow is gone. They cut to the stewardess again, then back to Hudson, and the pillow reappears.
