Revealing mistake: At the very end, when Sue is walking towards Carrie's grave site to place flowers on the grave, a car in the distance crosses an intersection backwards, giving away the method used to create the weird walk - playing the film in reverse.
Revealing mistake: This film has the old movie trait of Nazis having German accents rather than actually speaking in German, which is fair enough as they take up the majority of the screen time. However, not everyone adheres to this rule and there are many characters, minor and major who slip in and out of accents, and many never have them at all.David Mercier
Revealing mistake: When Francis emerges from the cave, he stands in the foreground, with the distant mountains and sun in the background. The sun creates a lens flare, which is an internal reflection within the camera lens. Yet Francis is in front of the flare. This shows that the actor was composited with the background via a traveling matte process.
Revealing mistake: In the closing scene, you can see the modern curb & sidewalk have been covered with dirt.
Revealing mistake: In the aerial shot where the Pantera explodes on the highway, you can see that it's a crude mock-up on some type of rolling trailer. Also, it appears to only be moving at 30 or 40 mph, which is WAY slower than the 160 mph speed indicated in the movie.
Revealing mistake: Following their escape from the comancheros, the two wheeled wagon driven by the old woman had a set of reins coming through the slats beneath the seat indicating that the old lady held fake reins and the wagon/horses were controlled by someone inside. Later, when they left the small town and headed to her son's ranch, a little window had been cut out of the slats where the control reins came through, no doubt to improve visibility and horse control.
Revealing mistake: Navarro is climbing on the outside of the train, the overhead shot shows very wide gaps between the plates welded to the windows. When the shot changes to a side-on view, the gaps are considerably smaller. This is seen several times throughout the quick scene changes. (01:47:00 - 01:49:30)Mr Manchester
Revealing mistake: During the scene when David is fighting off the large beast in the arena, there is a shot where you are looking right down its throat. Inside the "creature" you can see a light emanating from inside the mouth of the suit, probably so the actor inside could see while acting in it.
Revealing mistake: When the armed gang abduct the Mayor, a LAW rocket is fired at a Lorry, the few seconds are obviously several shots pieced together. The giveaway being the driver is a dummy as the driver has no face, even after the explosion, the faceless dummy just falls out of the cab.kazara1001
