Logan's Run

Revealing mistake: When Francis emerges from the cave, he stands in the foreground, with the distant mountains and sun in the background. The sun creates a lens flare, which is an internal reflection within the camera lens. Yet Francis is in front of the flare. This shows that the actor was composited with the background via a traveling matte process.

Revealing mistake: In the carousel scene, when the contestants are starting to float into the air, you can see the cables attached to the contestants that are lifting them up. (00:08:58)

Revealing mistake: When Logan shoots at the first runner, his two shots hits the ground in front of the runner but you can see the setup on the ground that explodes and creates sparks. (00:11:36)

Revealing mistake: When the dome city starts to blow up, people are running around in a panic. One man in a red outfit jumps off a balcony to the next floor and you can see a modern (1970s) lit exit sign over a doorway behind him. Many of the interior shots for the dome city were filmed in a large shopping mall; that sign must have been missed when they were trying to make it look like the year 2274.

Revealing mistake: In the opening scene at the nursery, a flesh colored clip is visible on the baby's hand. It is holding the white crystal to the center of his palm. (00:02:48)

Continuity mistake: When Jenny Agutter panics after a lizard crawls up her skirt, her clothes are very dirty but in the next scene, her clothes are clean. (01:12:42)

Logan: Who are you?
Box: I am more than machine. More than man. More than a fusion of the two. Don't you agree? Wait for the winds. Then my birds sing. And the deep grottos whisper my name. Box... Box... Box.
