The French Connection

Corrected entry: When Charnier is still in France, he takes a gift to his girlfriend. She goes inside, and he picks up a fishing pole. He turns, and she comes back outside. The pole is gone. There was no indication he put it down or dropped it over the wall.

Correction: The fishing pole is actually still there. If you look very close, to the very right its still resting on the rail. You may have to play it a few times, but it is most certainly there.

Corrected entry: When the police investigate the car in which they suspect drugs are being hidden, they really tear it apart - they rip out linings, pull apart fittings, pry off bits and pieces, etc. However, when, after a short period of time, it is returned to the actor who brought it in, he does not notice that it has been tampered with. It really would have taken a much longer time and a lot of the right fittings and materials to put it back together again in such good condition.

Correction: The car which is returned to the owner is a different car that is identical to the original.

Continuity mistake: When the drug tester gets done with testing the heroin, he blows out the lit candle on the bottom. But when there is a far shot of him talking, the candle is still burning.
