The Shadow

Factual error: While hanging from the top of the Empire State Building, the sailor looks straight down the side of the building, which is shown to be flat. This is wrong. From the observation deck, there is another level that sticks out below, where the lights that shine upwards are stored.

Factual error: In the water tank sequence, Lamont takes a breath through one of the bullet holes. At more than five feet below the surface of water, the human diaphragm cannot push against the water pressure surrounding the chest, making it impossible to take a breath normally. Lamont should not have been able to draw breath at that depth.

Factual error: The guns Lamont Cranston uses in his "The Shadow" persona are Lar Grizzly MK1 Longslide. The movie is set in the 1930s and the pistols weren't developed before the early 80s.

Mistakes

In the water tank sequence Cranston dives to the bullet holes to get air. When he dives down there is a camera shot looking up at him from the bottom of the tank showing that there is plenty of air left at the top, no doubt left there so that the actor would not drown. And; for the sealed tank to fill completely there must have been a way for air to escape rapidly from the top. When the tank was full water kept pouring in and would have escaped the same way. When Margo arrives there is no water coming off the top of the tank.
