Ten Commandments

Other mistake: When Rameses places the dead body of his son on the statue next to his throne, watch as it cuts to a shot of the side of the statue. A dummy was used in this scene, and it becomes obvious. Check out his hair, which looks like plastic, and his eyes, which look like little circles.

Other mistake: When Moses' wife Sephora is out guarding the sheep, Moses is with his son at a tent. Sephora calls him because there is a stranger behind the rocks. When she calls you can hear that the sound is indoor-sound from a set, not outdoors. This continues when Moses calls, the dogs bark and so on.

Revealing mistake: When the parted Red Sea comes together, if you look behind Pharaoh as his troops are being engulfed by the water, notice in the background that there are two boulders floating in the water, not being pushed, but floating lightly.
