The War of the Worlds

Audio problem: When Dr Forrester and Sylvia are hiding in the farmhouse, just after the Martian eye enters the room, Dr Forrester says "An electronic eye - like a television camera" - however when he says "camera", his lips don't match the word. (00:46:45)

Continuity mistake: When Sylvia and Dr. Forrester are in the farm house, Sylvia cooks some eggs, then places the plates of eggs on the table. As she places them down you can see a plate with toast stacked on it. This plate disappears in the next shot of them both sitting down. (00:42:40)
