Blazing Saddles

Revealing mistake: When Mongo wakes up and breaks free of the chains, in the shot where he breaks free, the chains suddenly shift position and some even disappear. This is because the camera was stopped and the chains were replaced with fake break always before the camera was restarted. Another way to see this is because the water that dripping down Mongo's face suddenly stops.

Revealing mistake: As Mongo enters the bar, you can tell the background is a piece of scenery just outside the entrance; there is a wrinkle in the fabric at the floor.

Revealing mistake: After Bart's announcement, the preacher holds up a bible. As he does, you can see that it doesn't move like a bible that size might. Plus, after the hole is "shot", the cover splinters from the pyrotechnic charge goes off, showing it's a wooden prop.

Movie Nut

Revealing mistake: When the Waco Kid supposedly steals the king from the sheriff as they are playing chess, the real king falls out of the sheriff's hand as he pretends to grab it. It still lies there throughout the rest of the scene.
