The Spy Who Loved Me picture

Revealing mistake: The shot of the two nuclear missiles being launched is used twice, just reversed. They seem to have changed the saturation slightly in one of them to make it look different, but there are identical clouds at the top left/top right in both shots, ruining the trick.

The Mighty Peking Man picture

Revealing mistake: At one point in the movie, dumptrucks are sent in to contain the Mighty Peking Man. You can tell that these, like most of the movie are toys.

Factual error: In the scene where a politician is making a televised speech away from the studio, the camera is a vintage RCA black and white TK-12, but the camera monitors in the van are all in colour.

Viva Knievel! picture

Continuity mistake: When Evel Knievel goes to the insane asylum to break his buddy Will out of the institution, he crashes through the front door with the Stratocycle, breaking off the airplane-style wings on each side of the bike in the doorway. In the next shot, as he rides down the hall, the wings are still intact.

The Deep picture

Continuity mistake: In the opening scenes, when David is chiding Gail for grabbing him through the porthole of the wreck, his right hand is gloved, then ungloved, then regloved..all in the space of a few moments.

Pete's Dragon picture

Revealing mistake: Near the end of the film, the mayor, played by Jim Backus, is speaking to Elliot the dragon, who is invisible. The mayor has a cigar in his mouth and smashes it when he turns to greet Elliot. The scene is accomplished by having Backus turn and smash the cigar into a large pane of glass. However, the reflections on the glass are visible.

Are You Being Served? The Movie picture

Other mistake: When Mrs Slocombe is having her passport picture taken the images taken are not directly in front of them where the actual photo camera is, rather they are taken from the camera filming off to the side.
