Other mistake: When the Martians first land on earth, the ship is so hot, it starts fires in the surrounding area, and can't be approached for hours later. Yet later, when another ship crashes directly into the farmhouse, there are no fires, and the farmhouse certainly doesn't catch fire.
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)
Forrester: If they're mortal, they must have mortal weaknesses. They'll be stopped, somehow.
Trivia: The Flying Wing used to drop the atomic bomb on the Martians was the YB-49, an experimental bomber discontinued in 1950, three years before this movie was made. By the time the movie came out all YB-49s had been scrapped.
