The Omen picture

Visible crew/equipment: When the ambassador and the photographer are in the cemetery getting attacked by the dogs there are men standing behind a tree. I'm assuming they're the trainers - they are located when the photographer is trying to hop the fence. Look in the back right hand corner - there are about two or three men standing there. (01:21:15)

Character mistake: The first victim gets smacked in the face by the Mistress, and then in subservient fashion holds her hand and kisses it asking if she hurt her hand hitting him. Thing is, she slapped him with the right hand and he is kissing the left better. (00:01:40)
