The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

Revealing mistake: You can see the Black Rider's effects mask when he's asking the hobbit about "Shire. Baggins". There's a bluish glint on it.

Suggested correction: Already listed and corrected. There's no reason the Ringwraiths can't actually wear masks under their hoods.

Twotall

This is a mistake. The Nazgul do not wear masks under their hoods. The "bluish glint" described is consistent with fabric used for the post-editing process to create the darkness effect over the face of the actor. Behind-the-scenes footage shows that the actors wear the aforementioned blue face masks to capture effect, so this entry is correct.

No, it is not. This entry isn't correct. It was done deliberately in order to make them appear more scary and menacing. No mistake at all.

Visible crew/equipment: After starting their four day journey through the long dark of Moria, a few shots later Gandalf pulls on his hat brim, and just as he walks (with Legolas close behind) to his left (towards the viewer's right), up some stairs, the black electrical cable leading from the staff to under the robe's left sleeve is visible.

Question: In the scene where Gandalf and Saruman are fighting in the tower Saruman takes Gandalf's staff and sends him to the top of the tower. What happened to Gandalf's staff? When he escapes he somehow gets his staff back and uses it the rest of the movie. Is it another similar staff, or am I missing something?

Answer: It is a different staff. Look at the branches at the top of the staff.
