Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

Visible crew/equipment: As the Baroness is falling into the lake, there is a shot of her about 10m above it. The surface water looks like it is being blown by a helicopter. As soon as she is in the water, the lake is calm again.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Chitty Chitty Bang Bang comes into the castle to rescue the family, the shot shows the car turning, but a pivot wheel under the car can be seen, and the actual tire while turning, does not match the radius of the turn nor the speed at which it should be rolling.

Visible crew/equipment: When Caractacus is being dragged across the ground by the rockets, the wire he is holding onto is visible.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Chitty is taking off from the castle, Caracticus looks down at the toymaker and Peter and says, "Bye bye". If you look closely, right in front of them, a boy runs across holding a stick he stole from one of the cavalrymen. He is waving it around and you can tell it's fake because it flops around like rubber. (02:16:50)
