Plan 9 From Outer Space

Corrected entry: Why does the wife of the old man have vampire clothes and long nails?

Dr Wilson

Correction: This is not a mistake, but rather a question. The plot revolves around aliens turning the dead into ghouls and vampires. The old man's wife is named in the credits as Vampire Girl. Additionally she is played by Maila Nurmi who created the character 'Vampira' and liked to portray that character in films.

Corrected entry: When the flying saucers passes over the cemetery, everybody falls on the ground but the fog stays still.

Correction: The fog stays still because the light does not affect it. The movie gives you the idea that the UFO's light affects your nerve system, not the light, water, colors, etc.

Corrected entry: When the flying saucers are leaving the mother ship, there is the sound of wind whistling as the flying saucers hurtle through the air. But there is no air in space, and hence no sound.

Correction: This movie was made in 1959, and space as a vacuum not allowing sound was speculation. Seeing as how no one had yet travelled in space from Earth, the movie makers had no way of actually knowing if there would be sound. Even movies made in the '70's and 80's like Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica had sound in space. Not a mistake if the science could not confirm at the time a lack of sound.

Corrected entry: When the co-pilot calls the control tower after the flying saucer has passed in front of the airplane, he says "May Day, May Day, standby Burbank tower." According to protocol, pilots actually have to say "May Day" three times.

Correction: People get nervous, people make mistakes.

Rlvlk

Corrected entry: There is a long scene where we are explained to in painstakingly minute detail that the Army has built a huge computer to decrypt the aliens' language into English, and that it is impossible to understand the aliens without this computer. But later on, there is much dialogue between aliens and humans inside the saucer.

Twotall

Correction: Just before the guys enter the ship, Eros tells Tanya to turn on the "Dictorobetary" so they can communicate with them.

Mistakes

When the UFO makes the huge flash that knocks everyone in the cemetery down, one of the police officers kicks a tombstone as he falls and it wobbles back and forth.

Trivia

At the beginning Criswell reads, "Can your heart stand the shocking facts about 'Grave Robbers from Outer Space'?" This was the original title of the movie that was changed because of objections by the financial backers.
