This Island Earth

This Island Earth (1955)

1 corrected entry

Corrected entry: When Cal and Joe are approaching the airfield early in the morning, you can see the wipers moving. But as the jeep pulls closer into view, you can make out through the fog that Cal is moving the wipers manually himself.

Correction: I don't see how this is a mistake. Cal and Joe are in an old military jeep that have hydraulically powered wipers. But if the hydraulics go out, they can be operated manually, which he does.

Mistakes

After Cal goes to the secret lab in Georgia, he and two others go into his new lab. When they enter a cat jumps up on the counter. Dr. Adams says "This is Neutron. We named him that because he's so positive." Neutrons are neutral and electrons are negative. It's protons that are positive. They should have named the cat Proton.

Trivia

In the shot where scientist Cal Meacham is pulling the power plug from the Interocitor, the post supporting the triangular viewscreen is suddenly taller than in it is in any other scene. It appears to have been lengthened deliberately for this shot in order to raise the viewscreen above the top of the film frame.
