The Fugitive

Deliberate mistake: The dummies are obvious when the jail bus is flipping over onto the railroad tracks.

Continuity mistake: During the bus accident, Richard Kimble is handcuffed. When the bus is falling, you can see that he has no handcuffs on, but then when he asks the guard to uncuff him again, he has them back on. (00:16:20)

Question: Again, was the Polish woman's son really a drug dealer? A little piece of me thinks that it could have been a ruse by the Chicago PD to get him in and let Kimble think he was safe for the moment. Or, did he tell the cops that Kimble was living in his mother's basement as leverage to get out of being arrested for drug dealing?

Answer: Why on earth would the Chicago PD leave Kimble to think he was safe if they knew his location? He's a convicted killer - they find him, they grab him, they throw him in prison, end of story. No requirement to lull him into a false sense of security. They busted the Polish woman's son for drug dealing - he turned Kimble in to try to buy some leniency.
