Best fantasy movie mistakes of 1979

All That Jazz picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Joe Gideon is helping his daughter with dance exercises and realises that it is time to put Michelle in a cab, he carries her out of the rehearsal studio with her facing forward and her legs wrapped around his back. They turn a corner to go outside and she magically is facing him arms around his neck and legs wrapped the other way around his waist. Also Michelle suddenly grows a yellow rain jacket. There is no time lapse in the dialog which would explain this turn.

Phantasm picture

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, when Mike and Jody raise the hood on the car, Jody's hand holding on to the hood alternates between his right and left hand over three shots.

The Black Hole picture

Factual error: In the PALOMINO scenes, Anthony Perkins wears a long lab coat. In most of the scenes, it hangs straight down; but in the low gravity aboard the ship it should be flattering about (that's why such loose garments are not worn by real-life cosmonauts; they would be a hindrance).

Revealing mistake: When the ghost (Bugs Bunny) tells Scrooge that he is going to take him to "the man in the red suit", the ghost puts his arms up but the shadow does not.
