Cool Hand Luke picture

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.

Wait Until Dark picture

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.
