Quatermass and the Pit

Continuity mistake: A borazon drill was used to cut a hole into a panel. The hole was rather large, but when the special effects began showing the panel dissolving, the hole was much smaller.

Continuity mistake: The martians that were pulled out of the spaceship had compound eyes much like a fly. However, the lifeforce of the martian over London, had cross-eyed pupils.

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.

Continuity mistake: The man who was electrocuted and killed inside the hull of the spaceship is carried on a board and is laid down on the platform, just after Quatermass says "He's dead" he covers the dead man with a sheet that magically appears from nowhere between shots.

Continuity mistake: Quatermass used tweezers to pull away the membrane covering the eye of a dead martian. A scene later, the membrane was intact.
