Other mistake: When they are lifting the boxes of gold at the end of the movie you can tell that the boxes are empty.
Other mistake: In the last scene where the children are walking away from the house after their father has gone in, in the background on the right hand side of the screen, a tree falls.
Other mistake: In the scene where the one guy is dragging the dead guy around on the creeper and is about to cut the old man's hand off you can see the old man blink and move his eyes. He's supposed to be dead. If he was alive I'm sure he'd have made some noise when he got his hand cut off. (01:08:46)
Other mistake: When the stricken airliner is on final approach for landing, both pilots stare intently out the windscreen, never so much as glancing down at the flight instruments. In an instrument landing the pilot must look continuously at the instruments until the copilot reports that the runway is in sight, as that is the only way he can follow the controller's instructions.
Other mistake: The siren changes from manual to electronic as the newly elected sheriff rides through town on his first night. Also during this ride is a reflection on the windshield of a dash light which the car isn't equipped with.
Other mistake: When Paris gets to prison he has a wad of money on him. Before he got that far the court would have taken the money away and given it back to the guy he stole it from.
Other mistake: A little more than halfway through the movie, they are robbing the train cars by uncoupling and switching the switch direction back and forth to direct the unwanted engine and caboose to the left branch. He switches the switch to go right for the wanted cars and forgets to switch it for the caboose. If you look at the tracks of the switch, it is already set for the train to go left. He then remembers to change the switch and the caboose goes left where it would have already gone.terry s
Other mistake: Like most Sherlock Holmes films 'The Private Life Of Sherlock Holmes' is set in Victorian England: Queen Victoria even makes an appearance. Holmes and Watson go to Loch Ness in Scotland, where they see the Loch Ness monster. (Spoiler alert) it turns out that the Loch Ness Monster is not a living creature, but an experimental submarine. Like most people who would have seen the film on its release in 1970, they are familiar with the Loch Ness monster (even if they do not necessarily believe in it). But the first documented sightings of the Loch Ness Monster were only made in 1933. Nobody ever thought there might have been a monster in Loch Ness before 1933.Rob Halliday
