Best sci-fi movie mistakes of 1967

You Only Live Twice picture

Plot hole: Right after Bond escapes Blofeld and joins Tanaka and Kissy, they say they need to get to the Control Room (that Bond just left from), they look at the "front door" to the Control Room and Tanaka says "Impossible! It's too well defended!". Why did they not go back the way Bond just came from, through Blofeld's "apartment"? Instead, they fight their way across the entire launching complex and go through another entrance, which ALSO leads through Blofeld's "apartment".

Quatermass and the Pit picture

Visible crew/equipment: As Quatermass drives back to the spaceship in a cab, just before it is to be drilled, the film crew can be easily seen in the cab's windows. A woman with a white cap can be seen holding a script. Later when the police use a megaphone on their car to announce the spaceship is a hoax, you can again see the same woman with a white cap in one of the windows of the police car.

They Came From Beyond Space picture

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, the scientists are told they are being sent to study the strange fact that seven meteors landed near each other in a V formation. The government agent even traces a V on the board with his finger. When they get to the field, panoramic shots show that there are nine meteors, and they are in a 3 by 3 grid, not a V.

Revealing mistake: In the scenes inside the space capsule, as Roy goes through the sequence, the wires holding him up in the floating sequences, and the crackers when trying to eat, are visible.
