The War of the Worlds

Character mistake: On several occasions, scientist (Clayton Forrester) refers to the impacting objects as "meteors". Any scientist knows (or should), that when a meteor impacts the the ground, it becomes a "meteorite".

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)

Trivia: The reporter speaking into the tape recorder just before the atom bomb is used is Paul Frees. Even today (though he passed away years ago) Frees is still the voice of the 'ghost host' in the Haunted Mansion rides at the Disney parks, as well as Ludwig Von Drake and many other cartoon characters.
