Best adventure movie mistakes of 1977
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.

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.
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.
