Other mistake: As the UFO approaches and flies over the park, the camera pans to the right with the UFO in the upper left corner of the shot, tracking it. As it does, the UFO passes over the heads of two women, who are gazing at a spot behind where the UFO is when they should be turning their heads to the right, watching the descent.
Helen: Gort! Klaatu barada nikto.
Trivia: In order to make Gort's body appear seamless, two different costumes were created, one that opened in the back for front shots and one that opened in the front for rear shots. Unfortunately, as someone has already pointed out on this site, it was sometimes rather difficult to co-ordinate which suit was needed for which shot and thus there are several times in the film where Gort's seams can be seen.
