Continuity mistake: At one point, during the scene with the helicopter dogfight, the tail wing of Bond's mini-copter is riddled with bullet holes (and yet the mini-copter continues to fly very efficiently), but for the rest of the scene, the tail wing is in perfect condition with no sign of the damage done to it. (00:56:40 - 00:58:45)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Coco tears up the photo of Luke with the women, he tears it carelessly, starting with the upper left corner. The end shot of the movie shows the same photo, reassembled, showing a neat, cross-wise tear, with the center of the tear directly over Luke's heart.
Continuity mistake: Mrs. Robinson picks up the phone to call the police on Benjamin who has broken into her house but if you look closely she never dials the phone. (01:35:10)
Suggested correction: Since we never see the police come in, we're not for sure she actually called them as Mrs. Robinson is known to lie and manipulate. All we hear are tires screeching and as we see no police pursuing him, it's unlikely.
Continuity mistake: In the wide angle shot of Chief Gillespie approaching Virgil Tibbs at the train station, there is a dog on the platform, in between Gillepsie and Tibbs. In the next shot, a closer view of Gillespie approaching Tibbs, the dog is gone.
Continuity mistake: In the park scene where Paul's drunk and barefoot, Corie carries his shoes as she follows him back to their apartment. When they're in the apartment Paul has his shoes on, and Corie helps him take his wet shoes off.
Continuity mistake: When Andress is taken hostage outside the casino watch the background to see the bouncer walk inside the Royale yet when Sellers runs outside the bouncer is outside again. (01:41:00)
Continuity mistake: The scene where Col. Hathi inspects his troops, he leans on his stick and it breaks. However, in the next scenes, the stick you see is sometimes broken and sometimes it is still complete.
Continuity mistake: When Bonnie and Clyde are in the hotel room trying to have sex, Clyde stands up and Bonnie lies on her side and there is a gun right by her face. Throughout the rest of the scene there is no gun on the bed at all.
Continuity mistake: When Charles Bronson steps out on the balcony of the nazi villa a second time (after having to hide), he drops his rope (to get on the roof), and when we see him from another angle, he drops it again.
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)
Continuity mistake: There's a scene where Audrey Hepburn's husband Sam is leaving their apartment. Standing on the pavement outside he hails a cab, which pulls up through a (quite sizeable) puddle, splashing him with water. Opposite him on the other side of the road are parked two cars and the villains' Volkswagen van. There's a quick cut-away exchange of "pleasantries" between Sam and the cabby before it drives off. The next shot has the villain (Richard Crenna) emerging from the van, crossing the street, and making for the door to their apartment, only all of a sudden the puddle has disappeared, as have the two cars which were parked behind the Volkswagen van.
Continuity mistake: There is a scene when King Arthur is just starting the Round Table. All the knights are gathered and bow on their knees to Arthur and King Pelinor who ceremoniously holds the sword Excalibur. But King Pelinor doesn't arrive in Camelot until after the following scene (which is May Day). (00:37:00)
Continuity mistake: During a session in class when they were discussing marriage etc, Potter and Denham can be seen in the background leaning in their chairs against the wall. The discussion then involves them and the Teacher played by Sidney Poitier. In the scenes that follow it shows them leaning on their desk when the pair of them are talking to the teacher, and when the teacher is talking it shows them in their original posture with their chairs still tilting.
Continuity mistake: The martians that were pulled out of the spaceship had compound eyes much like a fly. However, the lifeforce of the martian over London, had cross-eyed pupils.
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.
Continuity mistake: While every other actor in this movie wears the same costume day and night, day after day, John Wayne's costume changes regularly, even between shots. For all daytime scenes, he wears an orange long-sleeved shirt with a contrasting blue neck-kerchief; in some night-time scenes, he wears a blue long-sleeved shirt with a contrasting yellow neck-kerchief; and sometimes his daytime neck-kerchief changes from blue to yellow in a matter of seconds, between shots.
Continuity mistake: In the scene in the bullring, Fathom is knocked down by a pursuing bull. We see black underwear under her dress after she falls down. She gets knocked down a second time shortly after and this time it has changed to white.
Continuity mistake: When JB talks to Ms. Jones on the intercom after talking to his wife on the telephone, he asks where the "You know" is. She says "It's in your top right-hand drawer." You can see him moving to his left.
Suggested correction: Correct, but if you look at the desk in the wider angle from earlier in the scene, that would be the position of the rightmost drawer in it - the part of the desk the telephone sits on is a curve with no drawers. He has to move to his left no matter what.
Continuity mistake: When Spencer Tracy backs into the blue hotrod, the cars end up kind of sideways. In the next shot it shows the cars at a 90 degree angle touching. Then in the next shot it shows them sideways again as he pulls away.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Max and Leo visit Roger DeBris, Karman Ghia instructs them to remove their shoes because of the white carpet, and they do so. In the next scene, Max and Leo sit down and you can clearly see they have their shoes on. (00:42:25)
