Best war movie continuity mistakes of 1969
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.
Continuity mistake: In this scene we see the General briefing his men. A map is spread out over the bonnet of a jeep. While he is studying the map and planning the next move a steaming hot cup of something is given to the General and is placed on the map for him. The General then takes it in his right hand and is about to drink it when someone speaks to him. The General replies to him and in the next wide angle shot there is no cup in his hand nor is it anywhere else.
