The Manchurian Candidate

Continuity mistake: As an unconscious member of the captured American patrol is being carried on a stretcher to a Russian helicopter, his helmet falls off the stretcher onto the ground. In the very next shot, the soldier's helmet is now not only on his head, it is tightly strapped to his chin.

Factual error: Raymond is equipped with what is described as a high-power Soviet sniper rifle. However, the rifle he uses is actually a Japanese carbine.
