Midway picture

Rocky pictureRocky mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: During the final fight, a steady cam operator with a white shirt and black straps around his body is seen during several wide angles. This is not a TV camera, it is a film crewmember. The Director even admits to it in the audio commentary on the DVD.

The Outlaw Josey Wales picture

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Laura is being attacked in the desert, the camera swings wildly. During this swing, the entire crew becomes visable for a split second. You can see Clint Eastwood (who also starred in the film) sitting in his director's chair, wearing a white t-shirt and watching the filming closely. (01:19:54)

Cannonball picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Cannonball is driving the Mustang and Redman is driving the Charger through the incomplete Interstate, they begin bashing each others' cars to bits. Several shots show the badly damaged cars and the results of the multiple hits taken. However, when we are shown the cars just before the bridge jump sequence, neither car appears damaged.
