El Cid

Revealing mistake: In the scene were Charlton Heston has just said goodbye to Sophia Loren and is about to ride off with his followers (last scene just before the set intermission in the film), you can just make out a tiny little red automobile riding through the landscape in the background.

Visible crew/equipment: On the beach there's a battle charge, and in the foreground you can clearly see a set of tyre tracks from the camera vehicle preceding the charge.
