The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Revealing mistake: When Rocky climbs the RKO tower, he carries lifeless Frank-N-Furter on his back. In the wideshots facing the stunt doubles' backs, while Rocky has both of his hands on the tower, the very much dead Frank-N-Furter has his right arm firmly around Rocky's neck to hang on.

Revealing mistake: When Riff Raff and Magenta burst in after Frank's song, Janet steps away from Frank's side into Brad's arms. Watch Brad's face - you can clearly see the look of pain, as Janet steps on his foot in four inch spike heels.

Revealing mistake: Just minutes after Rocky's creation, when he is lifted out of the tank, there is a nice close-up of Rocky's face. The newly created man with the "Charles Atlas seal of approval" has a few silver fillings in his upper right teeth, which are easily visible as he sings, "Over my head and I've got the feeling..."

Revealing mistake: Funny how when Brad and Janet are led to separate rooms, their rooms are identical, right down to the folds in the chair material and missing drapery tassle fringes...

Revealing mistake: When Dr. Scott is being pulled through the castle by the Triple Contact Electro-Magnet, you can see the cable and the cut in the carpet, that the cable runs under, pulling his wheelchair at the top of one of the staircases.

Revealing mistake: The saxophone Eddie plays in "Hot Patootie" has no reed.

Revealing mistake: When Rocky lifts Frank-N-Furter's body Rocky is barefoot, wearing only the stockings. When Rocky is climbing the RKO tower, carrying his creator, evidently Rocky is wearing a type of thin shoes under his stockings. The stunt double did this as a safety precaution.

Revealing mistake: When Dr. Scott's wheelchair is being pulled by Frank-N-Furter's magnet, just after passing Magenta and Columbia, Dr. Scott soars up the next flight of stairs. Look between the cobwebby banister bars and you'll notice that the 'stairs' are actually a flat surface.

Revealing mistake: When Rocky first stands up in the tank still bandaged, he doesn't get up directly underneath the colour machine, which he is going to grab onto moments later, because he can't see; you can see him trying to shuffle discreetly into the right position.

Revealing mistake: In the laboratory, when the tank is unveiled, fishing lines are visible strung across the top of the tank (probably to keep the red sheet from dipping down into the water). Watch closely in the reverse shot after Magenta and Columbia throw off the sheet.

Revealing mistake: After Frank-N-Furter pulls the lever to immobilize Janet, Brad and Dr. Scott, Janet's feet are positioned close together when Frank-N-Furter shouts, "Planet Schmanet Janet,", but when she screams, "Stop!" her supposedly immovable feet now have a space of about 2 ft. between them.

Revealing mistake: During 'Sweet Transvestite', when Frank goes to get a drink of water, watch closely. You can see the screen shake a little bit. This leads me to believe that the cameraman tripped.

Revealing mistake: At the end of the movie when the castle shoots into space, if you look just as it gets really misty, in the background (it's maybe just centimetres off) you can see the real castle. The one that blasts off is a cutout.

Mistakes

When Eddie escapes the deep freeze, he wears three rings on his left hand: his middle, ring and pinkie fingers. Bizarrely, the pinkie ring actually disappears in quite a few shots, including when Eddie plays the sax and when he lifts Columbia, just before they mess around on the floor.

Trivia

Many people don't realise that the actor who plays Riff Raff (Richard O'Brien) is actually the person who wrote the original stageplay of 'Rocky Horror'. He also wrote the sequel movie.
