The Italian Job

Revealing mistake: When the police car crashes through the grating that was dropped down in front of it at the end of the tunnel, the occupants are dummies - they just bounce about in the same upright position whilst the car drives into the river.

Revealing mistake: Towards the end of the movie throughout the Mini chase scene through the building, down the stairs and skidding around corners etc, you can see tyre markings from previous takes.

Revealing mistake: When the three Mini Coopers drive onto the coach, the first Mini doesn't have fitted headlights. It also has a brand new rear wheel fitted that is clean and the rest are dirty.

Revealing mistake: After stealing the Bullion the gang make off through a shopping mall. As the scene changes to show the Minis descending a staircase it can be seen that the door of the front Mini is wide open and the passenger is getting in as the car moves off. It shows that the car was stationary before the start of the shot and not actually descending the stair.

Revealing mistake: When the mafia bulldozer is destroying the three cars on the mountain pass, the red jaguar E type has obviously been replaced with a wreck as it has accident damage on it that wasn't there in previous scenes, and away from where the bulldozer hits it.
