The Wizard of Oz

Continuity mistake: Just before Aunt Em and the others go into the storm cellar there are two glass jugs on top of the shelf on the right of their back door. When we see the spot again a few seconds later as Dorothy stands there the jugs are gone. They're not on the floor either.

Continuity mistake: As Toto escapes from the Wicked Witch there's a mortar and pestle to the left of the hourglass. In a close-up Dorothy looks at the hourglass after the Wicked Witch turns it over and we see the pestle has been moved to the other side of the mortar. There will be no confusion about this if you look at the direction of the shadow cast by the hour glass.

Revealing mistake: Throughout the movie, the tin man's costume wrinkles up.

Continuity mistake: Dorothy's Aunt hands out some food, walks with her and leaves Dorothy alone. Several meters ahead there's a cart wheel and one chicken. When the angle changes, Dorothy is standing next to the wheel, which is also facing a different position, and there's a lot of chickens around.

Continuity mistake: At first the Tin Man starts chopping the top part of the Witch's door with his ax and two shots later he's chopping about two feet lower, near the handle. If you look closely when he eventually gets the door open, the top part has not been touched.
