Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Revealing mistake: The film contains a few animation glitches which usually only last a frame or two. These could have been fixed during the film's digital restoration, but were left in, presumably because the restorers didn't want to alter a single detail of the original animation. A prime example occurs when Snow White is leading the animals to the Dwarfs' cottage. As she approaches the door, a fawn steps in front of her, and its head completely disappears for one frame.

Continuity mistake: When the seven dwarves run scared down the stairs and out of the door, Dopey pulls the handle of the door from the inside until it breaks out and falls away. The next scene when the dwarf opens the door, the handle is there again. (00:33:00)

Queen: Now, a formula to transform my beauty into ugliness. Change my queenly raiment to a peddler's cloak. Mummy dust, to make me old. To shroud my clothes, the black of night. To age my voice, an old hag's cackle. To whiten my hair, a scream of fright. A blast of wind to fan my hate. A thunderbolt to mix it well. Now, begin thy magic spell.

Trivia: When making this movie, Walt Disney turned the script into a comic at first and they used these "comic strips" to move around shots and scenes, replace things and generally see what would work or not. This technique is now known as storyboarding and pretty much every single movie production uses it.
