Charley Varrick

Charley Varrick (1973)

6 mistakes

Plot hole: Swapping his dental x-ray records with his deceased partner won't convince anyone that Varrick is dead - then (as now) the patient's name appears on the x-ray.

Add time

Audio problem: In the scene at the end where Joe Don Baker is chasing Walter Matthau's plane around the junkyard, you hear the unmistakable sound of tires screeching on pavement, yet the surface of the junkyard is all dirt.

Add time

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the film when "Molly" is chasing Varrick's aircraft, the front fenders of his car have miraculously repaired themselves having been stoved in earlier when he crashed into various other cars in the scrapyard as he first went for the kill.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the wimpy banker is talking to the boss near the fence, the shadows in the background vary tremendously. They start out as very small, then engulf the entire background. Obviously, hours were spent between takes.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the bank robbery scene, Charley Varrick gets out of the yellow Continental, and closes the front passenger door behind him. In the next shot, the door is open. In the next shot, it's closed again.

Revealing mistake: After Nadine Varrick dies, she is still breathing - her arm moves up and down in a regular, relaxed fashion, as if she is asleep.
