Best thriller movie mistakes of 1983
Visible crew/equipment: At one point Clint Eastwood is out in the woods practising his shooting with his new .44 auto-mag pistol. While he's doing this, a car pulls up and a black male begins to get out with a shotgun. (We later learn that this is his partner). As the man with the shotgun is opening his door, if you look at the reflection in the car window, you can clearly see the reflection of a man with a camera and another man standing next to him.
Continuity mistake: When Dan walks down to a podium and looks over to see the dolphin knocking at the gate, the tee-shirt he is wearing changes from being plain white with a tag badge on his left, to a white shirt with a large blue stripe across it, with a tag badge being on the right.
Factual error: When we first see Fatima Blush she is waterskiing. She is doing several stunts which are only possible with one ski, the most notable being skiing backwards with one foot in the air. But when she releases the tow rope and skis up the ramp into James Bond's arms, she is on two skis.
Continuity mistake: One of the last scenes of the movie, when Karen Silkwood is driving away from Dru they show her sitting in the car waving at him and the rearview mirror is clearly visible. Then she starts driving away, and the rearview mirror is gone. Then as she drives off, you can see the mirror has been replaced.
Continuity mistake: Henrietta Dodd shoots Johnny holding the gun in her right hand. Sheriff Bannermann emerges from the bathroom and shoots Henrietta. The film switches to slow motion as she is shot and stretches both of her arms out to the sides as she falls. When she lands, her left hand is resting next to the railing of the stairs and is covered in blood. At no time did her hand come in contact with her wound or get any blood splattered onto it.
Other mistake: In the scene where Jesse enters Monica's apartment, he consults her calendar to see in which class she is in school that day. There's nothing unusual about this until you look closely at the calendar and see that time time is early/mid August. Did her school's academic year run differently from other schools' years, or was she taking summer classes? The latter doesn't seem likely.
