Visible crew/equipment: When Doc Brown loses his footing on the clock tower as it begins to toll, in the next shot, when he swings about towards the clock the thin black stunt cable attached to his waist, that leads around the neck of the statue, is visible. Do not confuse it with the thick silver electric cable Doc is holding.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: Watching the scene frame by frame on BluRay, you can see reflected in Marty's sunglasses that there are 2 bright windows. They are not white screens because you can see the window panes in his glasses. The same windows with panes are seen right after he answers Doc's phone call to Marty (the windows in the background that were right in front of Marty).

Visible crew/equipment: When Marty arrives at the 1950's town and is about to be run over by a green car, the whole filming crew is reflected on its door.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene in the beginning where Marty meets up with Doc for the first time, Doc shows Marty how the DeLorean works with the remote control with Einstein in the car. In the shot that switches to see Doc put the car in reverse on the remote control, you can clearly see a crew member manually steering the car in a dog costume (You can even see his hands turning the steering wheel).
