The Shining

Continuity mistake: Wendy is smoking a cigarette when Danny starts screaming, then she runs into the bedroom and opens the door, and doesn't have the cigarette.

Continuity mistake: In the scene at the beginning of the film, when Doc and Mr. Hallorann are eating ice cream, if you pay attention to Danny's hands, they move from folded in front of the ice cream bowl, to the back, and so on. They move about 5 times, each different.

Continuity mistake: While breaking down the bathroom door with the axe, Jack repeatedly strikes and damages the right hand panel, but as he turns away from the door (when he hears the snow-cat) both left and right panels have been damaged.
