Best movie other mistakes of 1971

Dirty Harry picture

Other mistake: According to the big photograph in their respective offices Bressler and the DA share the same pair of little daughters. (00:17:05 - 01:10:10)

The Omega Man picture

Other mistake: In the opening scene where Charlton Heston drives into a Deserted Los Angeles, he drives past at least 3 people walking down the sidewalk. The first person he passes is quite visibly holding up the traffic for the shooting. Another can be seen on the left of the screen when Heston puts the tape on. And one more can be seen in the wide shot of the street. Other than this, the film makers did a great of making LA look deserted.

Gavin Jackson
Get Carter picture

Other mistake: At the end just as Carter is about to be shot, he is facing the sea as he goes to throw his gun away. At this point the gunman fires and hits Carter square in the forehead. The position of the gunman is shown as being behind Carter and to his right (this is seen when the gunman lines up to take aim). Even though Carter leans back as he throws his gun away, he would have been hit somewhere on the right side of his head or temple at best.

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory picture

Other mistake: When the boat that Willy Wonka and the passengers are riding on is heading for the tunnel through the river of chocolate, two crewmen are cranking the paddle wheel. The wheel is in an opening in the middle of the deck. As the paddle is rotating, moving the boat through the river, the blades are always clean and dry and never have any chocolate on them whatsoever.

Other mistake: The sign which Silver reads says that one's got ten seconds to get away after pulling the chain. But in fact, after the monkey pulls the chain, fifteen seconds pass before the detonation (I've been counting).

Duel (1971)

Duel picture

Other mistake: While in Chuck's Cafe, a creepy shadow of a woman enters the camera view and it seems that she is playing the jukebox. No music ever plays in the place. (00:32:00)

Wendy D
Play Misty For Me picture

Other mistake: When Clint Eastwood arrives at Jessica Walter's house and she has made him dinner, he gets very angry at her and storms out the door stating it's over and he never wants to see her again. He speeds off in his car. It only takes him 1 second to leave through the door, walk to the car, open the car door, start the car, and speed out of the scene making a very loud tire noise. Jessica Walters follows him to the door and we hear the car racing from the scene instantly.

Randy DeShong
Diamonds are Forever picture

Other mistake: When the man at the start is thrown through the room and his head hits the wall, the picture briefly freezes.

The Anderson Tapes picture
The Anderson Tapes mistake picture

Other mistake: When the Mayflower truck is on the move picking everyone up for the heist, a mysterious hole appears above the truck's cab, cut out in the letter "o" in "Mayflower" when Pop is picked up, that wasn't there a moment before, and then it vanishes. The same thing occurs after the heist, when the truck crashes into the police cars.

Escape from the Planet of the Apes picture

Other mistake: When Cornelius and Zira should escape through the mechanical door that is opened by a knob in the guard's box there is no way that Cornelius could see which knob he should press, because one of the guards has his face turned to the window that they are hiding under.

Shaft (1971)

Shaft picture

Other mistake: The calendar in the police office indicates Tuesday January 27th. That was in 1970, but this story takes place in 1971.

10 Rillington Place picture

Other mistake: At the very beginning of the film, we see Christie commit a murder at the end of the Second World War whilst wearing the uniform of a Special Constable. Christie served during the First World War, and he wears the ribbons of the 1914 or 1914/15 Star, the British War Medal and the Victory Medal on his tunic. Unfortunately, whoever put them on put the bar upside down - they read from left to right VM, BWM, Star.
