1941

Visible crew/equipment: When Wild Bill crash lands his P-40 Tomahawk in the street, then dazedly tries to "bail out", watch his parachute. A nearby explosion is supposed to catch the parachute and pull him backwards, but the 'chute doesn't react to the explosion. Instead, a line attached to the end of it pulls Wild Bill backwards.

Continuity mistake: As the two look-outs get on the big wheel the thin guy with the ventriloquist's dummy sits on the right. But later in the film he is on the left.

Trivia: 1941 was directed by Steven Spielberg. The movie opens with a spoof of "Jaws", which Spielberg also directed. The woman who swims out and winds up on the submarine is the same actress who was eaten at the beginning of Jaws.
