Midway picture

Revealing mistake: In the final scene where Fonda and Holbrook are looking over the carrier at the crowds on the dock you can see that only the first rows of people are dressed in period clothes, the rest of the crowd are dressed as they would have in 1976 when the film was made.

Rocky pictureRocky mistake picture

Revealing mistake: Rocky says "cut my eye" during the fight scene, if you watch closly you can see the man actually squeeze a tube full of red stuff inches away from his eye. It's really quite funny... (01:49:20)

Carrie picture

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.

New this month Suggested correction: Sue visiting the grave site is a dream sequence that is intended to have a very surreal dreamlike quality to it. The car going backwards is one of the small hints to the audience that this sequence is just part of Sue's subconscious, and is not really happening at all.

King Kong picture

Revealing mistake: When Kong first shows up to take Dwan away, he roars and pounds his chest. As he does so, the breastplate in Rick Baker's costume vibrates visibly in a way that a flesh-and-blood chest wouldn't.

The Eagle Has Landed picture

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.

Logan's Run picture

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: At the end of the film, when Tony crashes Tim's car at the driving test centre, you can see it has been changed for a wreck as just before he crashes there is damage to the front left hand side that wasn't there before.

Cannonball picture

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.

The Outlaw Josey Wales picture

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.

Cassandra Crossing picture

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)

Freaky Friday picture

Revealing mistake: When Annabelle is skiing at the end (just before she turns into Ellen) we see a shot of her from the back of the boat. Its obvious that she is skiing against a backdrop cause the water is too far down for her to be touching it.

At the Earth's Core picture

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.

The Omen picture

Revealing mistake: When Damian knocks Lee Remick over the balcony with his tricycle, five big goldfish in a bowl get knocked over, too. But the fish don't move; they don't flap around like fish do out of water. They are obviously fake fish.

The Enforcer picture

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.
