Continuity mistake: When the fishing boat is stuck at the base of the cliff we see it tossing and rolling. However, when Brown is in the hold there is no movement. Also when the men are unloading their supplies the boat is obviously fixed and stationary.
Continuity mistake: When the girl is killed by Maria we see a shot of her from the shoulders up. She is not shot in the head so we can only suppose that has been shot in the heart (for her to die so quickly) but when Brown checks her out there is no blood and no exit wound on her back. So where was she shot?
Continuity mistake: When David Niven is at the bottom of the hoist setting the explosive charge, his hands are covered in grease as he is hiding the wires, which would complete an electrical circuit. Seconds later, when he and Gregory Peck are moving toward the guns his hands are perfectly clean. There was no time to wash his hands - or any evidence of a sink - when the Germans were feverishly trying to get into the tunnel.
Continuity mistake: When they are being interrogated by the gestapo officer, immediately after Anthony Quinn turns the tables on the Germans, Gregory Peck is seen behind him magically holding an MP40 on the seated German officer. The scene then shows Peck picking up the MP40 and threatening the officer again.
Continuity mistake: When the Germans are cutting through the bunker door at the mountain complex, the interior shot shows them having cut a hole of at least 2 feet in diameter, but when the guard on the outside shoots through the hole in the door, it is only about 12 inches by 4 inches, no way they could have cut the interior door through that small slit.
Continuity mistake: On the way to destroy the guns the truck hits a tank, and the wheel is bent. A shot later the truck is rolling on with no problems.
Continuity mistake: Gregory Peck, David Niven, and Irene Pappas steal a German army truck while disguised in German uniforms and drive to the Navarone gun barracks to destroy them. Before they get out of the truck the first time the truck is left hand drive. When they get back in the wheel is on the right. Not to mention WWII German military vehicles were left hand drive.
