Where Eagles Dare picture

Other mistake: In the scene where Burton and Eastwood are in the radio room, two grenades are thrown, which blow the main radio room door off the hinges and Burton and Eastwood run behind the small door and hide in that room. The German soldiers then run up and one of them throws another grenade supposedly into the radio room. However, the actor in his attempt to throw the grenade into the room instead throws the grenade into the door and it bounces back into the hallway in which he is standing and lands in front of him, yet no one reacts to this and seconds later we see an explosion as if the grenade had actually gone into the room, but it is really on the floor in front of the door and would have certainly blown the German soldiers to bits.

2001: A Space Odyssey picture

Other mistake: There is something drastically wrong with the design of the spherical 'Aries' moon shuttle. Some seats and many fixtures are 'upside down' relative to the up-down orientation of the shuttle itself, and we see loose food trays and equipment about the place as if this is routine. But - the shuttle is designed to land on the moon. What happens then? The moon has gravity, remember? There are going to be quite a few very disgruntled people dangling upside down like spiders, and there will be loose gear (and perhaps a stewardess or two) bouncing about all over the place. It is not a matter of stowing loose gear or lying flat on landing - some parts of the shuttle are upside down relative to others, which is why the stewardess has to do that famous 180 degree upside down walk. Whichever way you look at it the shuttle is going to encounter serious problems when it reaches a gravity well, which will occur whenever the engines are fired up, never mind landing on the moon.

Suggested correction: The shuttle lands "on its back" with legs extending beyond the engines. As in most traditional sci-fi, and ALL actual, space flights to date, the launch (and landing) orientation for humans is to be on one's back. This minimizes blood being sucked down to your feet if you were sitting upright at launch - you could pass out. So we see this when the shuttle lands on the moon - the cockpit (red window) faces up (pilots on their backs, facing out the window). When we presume that the passenger cabin was 180 degrees spun around from the cockpit seating, they're still on their backs. Any loose objects would have been stowed before landing - the airlines don't lock down your bags, newspapers and coffee cups, right? They're loose in the cabin during flight, but put away on takeoff and landing.

Barbarella picture

Other mistake: In the scene after Barbarella is taken out of the orgasm machine, she is given a new costume, and she no longer has her tongue box - yet everyone still speaks English.

The Odd Couple picture

Other mistake: In the scene where Walther Matthau is making sandwiches for his poker pals (during the movie's first poker game), Matthau drops a loaf of bread on the kitchen floor. If you look at his hand, you'll see that he flicks his thumb to make the loaf of bread fall.

Green Berets picture

Other mistake: After one of Col. Kirby's soldiers has been killed he takes the dead soldier's M-16 and smashes it against a tree. Instead of a magazine the rifle has a plastic sound box, because the 'rifle' is really a toy made by Mattel.

Once Upon a Time in the West picture

Other mistake: When Jill tries to leave Sweetwater in the morning after Cheyenne's visit, she runs into Harmonica. He has a very nasty, coarsely stitched injury in his cheek that is not accounted for, and for which there was no time to be received, stitched, and the stitches removed again. (Special Edition DVD has a deleted scene in which Harmonica is beaten up, which explains the injury, but it is a continuity mistake within the regular movie.) (01:12:25)

Coogan's Bluff picture

Other mistake: When Walt Coogan is chasing James Ringerman on their motorcycles up the stairs, a funny slip up occurs. Ringerman makes it up OK, and Coogan follows him, only to ride headlong into the corner of the stone staircase. He is just beginning to fall over when Director Don Siegel cuts away to the next scene.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang picture

Other mistake: When Professor Potts bought Chitty from the Junkman and brings the car into the garage, the body of the car is charred or damaged somehow from the crash and fire. But the leather seats, dashboard and wooden steering wheel are completely unharmed.

Night of the Living Dead picture

Other mistake: A few minutes after Tom and Judy have been killed in the truck and their bodies burned by the fire, the zombies begin to eat some of the body parts. One of the zombies can be seen with a human hand that appears to be neatly severed and unaffected by the fire, surely the hand would have been so badly burned by the fire beyond all recognition.

Yours, Mine and Ours picture

Other mistake: In the opening scene, where Henry Fonda is standing on the deck of the carrier, he is looking at his watch and he says "Zero Nine Hundred" If you look closely, the sweep second hand on the watch never moves from 4:00.

Rosemary's Baby picture

Other mistake: Guy goes to the closet and gets Hutch's coat as he's about to leave after having coffee with Rosemary. If you look at her she looks ghostly as they applied more makeup to her face between shots. Unfortunately they missed some spots around her eyes and on her forehead. (01:06:50)

The Thomas Crown Affair picture

Other mistake: The bank robbers only took old notes, but the lead detective on the case reads out how much money was stolen: "Two million, six hundred and sixty-seven thousand, five hundred and twenty-seven dollars and sixty-two cents." There wasn't any change, it was all notes.

Carry On Up the Khyber picture

Other mistake: The fight at the end is unintentionally quite funny for the lack of enthusiasm shown by the extras playing the Burpers. They engage the British soldiers with some half-hearted fighting that's little more than jostling, and when they disengage the fight supposedly in fear and panic at seeing the "Men in Skirts" reveal themselves, most of them are quite slow and calm as they try and get through the narrow gate to escape.

The Shoes of the Fisherman picture

Other mistake: When Bp. Lakota is being interviewed by George Faber when he is just off the plane from Russia, he responds to a question by addressing Faber by name, Mr. Faber. It is extremely unlikely that Lakota could have known Faber's name beforehand.

Planet of the Apes picture

Other mistake: After running from the falling boulder in the forbidden zone, Dodge walks ahead of Taylor and Landon. In one shot, Dodge is shown in the distance, but you can two tracks in the dirt between him and the others. (00:19:50)
