Easy Rider picture

Continuity mistake: In the early part when Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper are getting their choppers ready, the film clip was reversed. You can tell because the American flag on Fonda's jacket has the stars on the right shoulder, not the left like the rest of the movie. (00:06:10)

Battle of Britain picture

Continuity mistake: It is 1940. Two pilots come out of a house - one of them has just lost his wife and family in the London Blitz, the other is an RAF Squadron Leader. The door they come out of has a modern electric bell push - a post 1965 version, white rectangular box with a round button.

The Italian Job picture

Continuity mistake: After the gang is pulled off the bank job, they race away in the three Minis - as they go through a tunnel at one point they roll up and down the sides of the tunnel. The mistake is that each car supposedly has two occupants, but on one shot of the cars in the tunnel, one car has only a single occupant - visible because the car following has his headlights on illuminating the car in front.

Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed picture

Continuity mistake: Frankenstein buys a sprig of freesias as a buttonhole: two yellow flowers and a purple. The sprig immediately changes into two purple flowers and a yellow. When Frankenstein meets Mrs Brandt and they go into the drawing room, the flowers are two purples and a red with yellow centre. Once in the cellar to see Mr Brandt, the red goes, and a yellow is back with two purples. (00:57:45 - 01:03:55)

Paint Your Wagon picture

Continuity mistake: At the end of the town collapse, a sincerely drunk Ben dives head-on into a tub where a lady (in her underclothes?) is just enjoying a bath. Propelled by Ben's momentum the tub with both passengers slides down the slippery planks and splashes into the river, while Ben rearranges himself into a comfortable sitting position between shots. If I wasn't completely mistaken also the lady changes her outfit, since the embroidery is missing when they float along. (02:23:35)
