Hooper (1978)

Corrected entry: When the movie crew sets up the shot of Adam West jumping off a ledge to save the dog, the clapboard they use has the name of Bobby Byrne on it as Director of Photography for the movie "The Spy Who Laughed at Danger". Byrne is the actual D of P for the movie 'Hooper', so they simply used the same clapboard for the Adam West shot. On that same clapboard you can see where they erased director Hal Needham's name from it and substituted the fictional director's name "Roger Deal", who was played by Robert Klein.


Correction: This is not a mistake. They have all the rights in the world to reuse equiptment.


Continuity mistake: There is one scene in the final earthquake as Ski and Sonny are driving around the city that's being destroyed - the Trans Am gets hit from the right side, hard enough to throw the car into a small skid, but seconds later there is no damage to the car, and nothing like that was discussed during the planning of the stunt. One has to wonder if that hit was unintentional and not scripted.

Trivia: When everyone's back at Sonny's ranch watching his old stunt films, the footage with him getting thrown from a canoe in a river was from his movie "Deliverance".
