Dirty Dancing

Visible crew/equipment: After Johnny and Baby do their dance at the end of the movie they walk over and Baby's dad stops them. You can see their marks where they are supposed to stand. (01:34:35)

Visible crew/equipment: Right at the beginning of the film, 'Baby' is having a group dance lesson with Penny. On the wide shot with Penny wearing a red dress and showing the dance steps you can visibly see a sound boom at the top of the screen. [Fixed in Collector's Edition.] (00:05:40)

Audio problem: When Penny and Johnny are teaching Baby their dance routine, Penny puts on a record. Look closely and you can see that Penny moves the arm to place it on the record, then she takes it away, even though the music is still playing. Even if it's a directorial device for us to hear different music than they do, it's still a mistake because she's not actually playing the record, meaning there isn't any music for them to dance to. (00:36:35)
