Green Berets

Other mistake: After one of Col. Kirby's soldiers has been killed he takes the dead soldier's M-16 and smashes it against a tree. Instead of a magazine the rifle has a plastic sound box, because the 'rifle' is really a toy made by Mattel.

Other mistake: When Kirby and the Sarge are in the helicopter during the big battle scene, when Kirby talks to Kowalski, you can see that Kirby's mouth is not matching what he says. Look closely because his hand blocks his mouth.

Other mistake: When Peterson is walking and gets caught in the trap, when he flies and hits the sharp needle bed, you can see clearly that the right one of them bends like rubber.

Visible crew/equipment: During the scene where Bulldog's helicopter crashes, you can see the cable which was holding the helicopter before it dropped.

Trivia: Even though the US military had a big part in the production of this film they asked the producer (John Wayne) not to credit them because they thought the movie was so pro-military that it bordered on propaganda.
