An American Werewolf in London

Revealing mistake: The first time David werewolfizes, we're treated to the complete process... hair developing, bones painfully lengthening and twisting... and the torso of the actor very visibly halfway in the floor while all this is going on to the full-body werewolf prosthesis. Oh for computer graphics at the time to erase that detail of the process.

Continuity mistake: The level of liquid in the doctor's beer mug changes noticeably between shots; the mug fills itself up again just before he leaves the pub. (00:47:10)

Question: When David is flicking through the channels on the TV, I am sure you can see a guy standing to his left, just on the other side of the curtain. (If you look behind his head, you may be able to see his mouth and nose.) Can anyone tell me if they see this too, or am I wrong?

Answer: There is nobody there. The only thing behind David's head is a poster of an actor.
