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: 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: 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 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: 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.unkajes
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)
Continuity mistake: During the car chase, the police car overtakes the car it is chasing which then suddenly turns left. The police car brakes, then reverses and turns left to continue chasing the car. As the police car turns, there is a grey Mini parked on the right that wasn't in the previous shot and couldn't have appeared in a few seconds.
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.
