Revealing mistake: Bond escapes from the buried pipeline when two technicians open a hatch from the outside. One tech unlocks the hatch by rotating a large wheel which drives the locking mechanism. But when he finally opens the hatch, there's absolutely no mechanism attached. There's just a bare axle that the wheel turns on.
Revealing mistake: Near the end the psycho killer pays a black man to beat him up so that he can then blame the injuries on Dirty Harry. Watch the killer's hairdo as he gets punched and beaten: a couple of rear-view scenes show an obviously fake wig, intended to look like the killer's own bad-hair-day style. (01:16:05)
Revealing mistake: Whenever 'Dog' gets wet (like fording a river) his makeup runs and you can see that he is really 'Lassie'.
Revealing mistake: When the platoon hear the church bells, they mistake it for the invasion signal and construct a barricade across the high street. If you look behind them you can see cars parked on the road in the distance that date from well after the 1940s.
Revealing mistake: When Von Richthofen is shot down and crash-lands in the combat zone, German and British soldiers arrive and fight for possession of the Red Baron's plane. It is strange, though, that the German soldiers fire British Lee Enfield rifles instead of the German Mauser Gewehr 98.
Revealing mistake: During the helicopter flyover several 'corpses' are seen lying in a depression in the dust where they fell after dying (imagine a 'snow angel' to see what I mean). However, there are no footprints leading up to any of them. Any soil loose and powdery enough to form a depression when a body lands in it would hold footprints. And if there was a strong enough wind to erase footprints it would have piled some of the dust up against one or more sides of the body.Grumpy Scot
