King Kong

Factual error: There are just a couple of things wrong about the gas grenades used in the movie: gas grenades do not explode, they spray their contents; and second: if the gas really is that powerful, it should be used with more caution; a simple sudden downwind breeze into an uncontrollable gas cloud, and the users would become their own victims.

Factual error: A creature of Kong's size would not be taken out that easily with the gas grenade as in the movie, for: 1) it explodes far too low for the gas to affect him; 2) even if the gas had reached his breathing organs, it would have taken more and prolonged exposure to knock him out.

Revealing mistake: As the men walk past the downed stegosaurus, the camera moves faster than they do (judging from the background) but they stay at the center of the screen. Obviously the camera on the model of the stegosaurus moved faster than the camera on the men.
