Destination Moon

Continuity mistake: When the crew do their EVA they start out standing "upside down" on the hull of the rocket with sunlight from the left. They then travel around the hull 180 degrees, an as they do the Sun is suddenly on the right.

Continuity mistake: During the in-transit EVA, there's an "over-the-shoulder" shot of the rocket pointing towards the distant Moon. The ship is lit from the right, but the Moon is lit from the left.

Mistakes

Between Earth and the Moon the crew of the spacecraft have an EVA in which they walk on the ship's metal hull with magnetic boots. At one point an astronaut inadvertently slips both boots off the hull and drifts off into space, helpless. There is a long shot of him drifting away in which his body spontaneously spins around 180 degrees and then stops rotating, which is all a violation of conserved angular momentum.
