Best comedy movie factual errors of 1967

Casino Royale picture

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 .

The Dirty Dozen picture

Factual error: When Resiman interviews him in prison, Franko is chewing gum. (In several shots you see it is chewing gum and not tobacco). First, during heavy rationing in the UK in World War 2 chewing gum was a rare and expensive treat. A military prisoner would not be able to obtain it for love or money. Secondly, US military prisoners were never, ever allowed chewing gum - it can be (and has been) used to jam locks.

The Fearless Vampire Killers picture

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.
