The Rainmaker

Visible crew/equipment: When Deck Shifflet (played by Danny DeVito) and another actor are calling their office from a payphone, in order to setup another law firm, once the call has been completed and there is some back and forth between the Danny and the other actor, a crew member is entering the scene via a side alley, more humorous is how said crew member leaves the scene, on realizing that he has just walked onto a live set, the crew member proceeds to stop and walk in reverse out of shot.

Continuity mistake: When Rudy comes to the Black's place the first time and Donny Ray's nose starts bleeding, blood drops on the letter in which Great Benefits deny their claim for the eighth and last time, calling Dot Black "stupid, stupid, stupid". The letter dates from April 25, 1995 and is signed by Russell Krokit. When the same letter is produced as evidence when Everett Rufkin is heard as a witness the letter dates from July 7, 1994 and is signed by Everett Rufkin with copy to Russell Krokit.

Chosen answer: I don't know why, but he asked not to be in the credits.

Josh Appelbaum

Answer: I don't know how prevalent this is (or how it actually works), but one possibility would be that he was under contract with a particular agency (or company/ business) and could only receive credit for work performed under this contract and/or no other agency could benefit from using him. His name cannot show up in something he did outside of that contract.
