Visible crew/equipment: As Quatermass drives back to the spaceship in a cab, just before it is to be drilled, the film crew can be easily seen in the cab's windows. A woman with a white cap can be seen holding a script. Later when the police use a megaphone on their car to announce the spaceship is a hoax, you can again see the same woman with a white cap in one of the windows of the police car.Larry Koehn
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film when the first skull is found, the black workman is holding a cigarette in his right hand when he tosses the skull to the foreman: The next shot cuts in and the foreman says "It may be worth money" the cigarette is now in the left hand of the black workman.Will
Visible crew/equipment: From the first shot, the flashing yellow crossing beacons on Hobbs Lane are powered by cables that lie in full view over the set pavements.
