The Witches

Revealing mistake: In the hotel meeting scene, the Grand High Witch tells the witches they can take their wigs off. When we see the newly bald witches, it is particularly obvious that only the foreground witches are ladies with bald caps - the rest of the witches are bald men. (00:30:10 - 00:31:00)

Revealing mistake: The grandma, who has a missing pinkie, clearly has it in some shots, and in some scenes it is clear she is bending it behind to make it seem as though it is missing.
