Forever Young

Factual error: In the scene where Daniel is flying the B-25 (Mitchell) to see Helen, you can see the propellers are turning much slower than needed for a cruising flight. Also, the sound of the engines is too low and keeps changing even though Nat and him are talking.

Factual error: In the scene where Daniel is taking off with the "borrowed" B-25 (Mitchell), they have two shots switched. It shows him taking off (a beautiful shot), and the very next shot it shows him adding power through the throttles. This should be reversed.

Continuity mistake: Daniel grabs Nat's jacket when the freezer gets opened, and it tears visibly and audibly. When Claire sees Nat wearing it after he has found it (that is after Daniel has given it back to him) there is no sign of any damage. (00:28:15 - 00:47:20)

Nat Cooper: You're lying.
Felix: I am not lying. My dentist said he's never seen so many cavities in one mouth and that he's sending a sample of my saliva to the University of Wisconsin.

Question: Mel Gibson spends 50 years frozen inside a machine that his friend Harry built. After Mel awakes, he is still the same age, but he slowly starts to age back into what he would been at the time that he awoke. Later on He discovers that Harry knew this would happen. If Harry knew, why did he build the machine in the first place?. It seems to serve no purpose other than to waste years of someone's life.

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Harry Findlay only discovered the ageing would irreversible after Daniel had been frozen; don't forget this was the first time he'd tried it on a human. Plus he only ever intended to freeze Daniel for a year, so this may not have been the main focus of the experiment anyway.

Answer: He only wanted to be frozen because his girlfriend was in a coma. Harry said, he only tried it on animals and wasn't to keen on the idea. Mel said to wake him when his girlfriend woke up. He figured it would only be for a few weeks or months. Joe Morton, the scientist, read a file on the experiment, stating that Harry died when a fire broke out in the lab and ran in to save him.
