Oliver

Revealing mistake: When we first see Oliver Reed, we see his shadow first on the wall at a ramp to the pub. As his shadow spreads its legs, we then see him spreading his legs a moment later. Shadow puppetry was used by the director to give the audience the impression that he is ominous and foreboding before we ever see the man himself. (00:54:10)

Continuity mistake: When Nancy is singing "As Long As He Needs Me" her dress continually changes between shots from being over her shoulder to half way down her arm.
