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: Right when the doors open, you can see the pulley that's pulling the far door open.

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.

Continuity mistake: Truly crashes into the pond three times: first when the kids are playing in the road and she takes them home, second on the day of the picnic when she says she has nothing else to do and will go on the picnic too, and third at the end of the film when Potts finds out he is rich. In the second of these three, when Mr. Potts carries Truly from her car in the pond, the end of the ribbons on the back of her dress gets soaked in mud, but when you see her again at the beach there is no sign of the dirt.
