Best comedy movie mistakes of 1967
Factual error: When M and his entourage arrive at Bond's estate their cars are surrounded by sheep. They then drive on down a unsurfaced road to Bond's house, past a pride of lions he keeps on the grounds. A series of sweeping overhead shots shows us it is all one huge field, with no fences or the like. Those sheep aren't going to last very long .
Continuity mistake: As the Dirty Dozen ready for the wargames, they are in a truck passing and saluting a line of American light tanks in closeup. Immediately after turning left into a circular driveway and stopping, in a long shot the tanks have quickly turned into a long line of Army trucks. There was no time for the tank convoy to drive off and have a convoy of trucks enter the scene.
Continuity mistake: Jim Dale and Anita Harris think that Barbara Windsor is going to jump off the roof and race across the road into the nurse's block. We see Anita Harris is wearing dark seamed hosiery as she runs up the stairs. A few minutes later she hangs down from the roof and the seams have disappeared from the backs of her legs.
00:59:00 - 01:01:55
Visible crew/equipment: After Lucifer talks to God and doesn't know what is happening and Saint Peter comes to escort him out they get into a discussion why he failed the entrance examination, you can see a reflection in glass between the camera and Lucifer and a man who does not appear to be St. Peter. (Maybe director Stanley Donen?)
Continuity mistake: Millie's beads have a mind of their own. They do not stay in place even when she is standing still. Besides the funny scene during the title credits (when it is deliberate), and when Miss Dorothy registers, they also move during a scene when Millie displays her thoughts on Miss Dorothy's beads when the two of them go into the elevator for the first time.
Factual error: The problem with firing a cannon on steam power is to have the boiling water build enough pressure inside the barrel, with no leaks or openings to release it before its time. The professor's scarf and the plug hammered into the fuse hole (which also flies off just before the shot) wouldn't be good enough as pressure restrainers.
