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.

Continuity mistake: In every case, the pod needs hours to take over the human, but, in Elizabeth's case, she gets changed in less than 5 minutes. (01:24:00)

Trivia: In the opening title sequence we see a garbage truck going through the Golden Gate Bridge toll booth. We would find out later that these trucks were used to transport the pods. The truck is traveling southbound from Marin County into San Francisco which is appropriate, (intentional or not) since the book Body Snatcher was set in Mill Valley, in Marin County, about 10 miles from the bridge.

Question: Why does Leonard Nimoy have a brown piece of leather on the back of one of his hands?

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.
