The Naked Gun

Other mistake: Pay attention to one of the early innings of the baseball game as one of the Angels players hits a home run. Though probaby intentionally set up this way as to avoid any problems of "logo patents" and such with the real life MLB California Angels team, he is wearing a helmet without the team logo on it.

Other mistake: While Frank Drebbin is saying the words "dew glistening on the grass" you can clearly see a woman in the audience at the bottom of the screen repeating every word he says. (01:19:55)

Factual error: When Frank knocks out the Umpire and begins to change into his clothes, the umpire is wearing white underwear. All umpires wear black in case the seat of their pants rip so the game can continue.

Frank Ballinger.
