Rear Window

Revealing mistake: In the shot of the helicopter hovering above the apartment building, the blue screen technique is needlessly revealed by the eratic and physically impossible movements of the chopper.

Also, Hitchcock is standing in for James Stewart and the character he played in 'Rope' since Mr. Stewart is busy spying on this scene.
