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.

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.

The Deep picture

Revealing mistake: At the beginning, when Gail is attacked by a moray eel - we don't see it, but that's the assumption - and she is banged against the sunken wreck of a ship, and then, when she is released, her mouthpiece is not in her mouth and she tries to swim to the top as fast as she can - all of this is done by a stunt double, understandably, we can see this by her hair, which is much thinner and straighter than Jacqueline Bissett's hair.
