Invasion of the Body Snatchers

The day after Matthew (Donald Sutherland) torches the pod people's base of operations, Nancy (Veronica Cartwright) is still going around pretending to be/acting like a pod person. She sees Matthew walking around and is relieved to see him. That is until he sees her and points emitting a piercing, alien shriek. Matthew has been converted.


Revealing mistake: Near the end of the film when Matthew is trying to destroy the pod "greenhouse," there is a shot where Elizabeth walks through. She is supposed to be naked, but if you look close you can see she is wearing flesh colored underwear. (01:55:30)

Answer: On the DVD commentary, Director Phillip Kaufman explained that the leather on Nimoy's hand was the actor's idea and simply showed how kooky the character was. Fits the character well really.
