Quadrophenia

Revealing mistake: During the end scooter sequence along the cliff tops, you can clearly make out wheel tracks stretching out ahead of Phil Daniels' bike, yet he hasn't been over that ground yet - these are presumably left-overs from a previous take?

Revealing mistake: The police in the riot scenes have got hair hanging well over their collars - they are supposed to be POLICE in the mid 1960s whereas in fact they are a mob of scruffy layabout 1970s extras.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Jimmy has just picked Steph up from her place of work. They are cruising along talking, if you look at the twist grip gear change on his scooter, it is in the first gear position for the entire time.

Visible crew/equipment: In the final scene before Phil Daniels rides the scooter off the cliff you can see a shadow of the helicopter filming the scene.
