Best drama movie mistakes of 1967

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.

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.

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.

To Sir, with Love picture

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.

Brighty of the Grand Canyon picture

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, right after the opening credits, Old Timer picks up a gold rock. When he first picks it up, we see a close up shot of his hand holding it only an inch or so above the ground. The very next shot a second later, from the side, shows his hand holding the gold instantly a foot or so above where it was before.
