Alien

Trivia: When the Android is attacking Officer Ripley, the first scene Ripley was sprayed with glycerine to give the idea they were sweating. However, the later scenes of the fight this glycerine was omitted because she found out she was allergic to it.

Trivia: When Sigourney Weaver auditioned for the role of Ripley, she had no idea that the part was written for a man.

Continuity mistake: In the shot of the alien's tail wrapping around the back of Lambert's legs right before it kills her, the floor is different to what it was before, there is water suddenly falling from the ceiling when there wasn't before and her trousers have changed from white to blue. This is because that shot was originally intended to be used when Brett was killed.
