Revealing mistake: When the window slams on Nordberg's hand it is that the window stops right above his hand. When he pulls his hand out the window doesn't go all the way down and a wooden cube is visible on the edge of the window stopping it from closing. (00:06:50)

Mortug

Revealing mistake: During the car chase, the doc's (already busted) car collides with a missile transporter. The explosion occurs just before the car impacts with the vehicle, and looks more like the burst of a flame thrower than a real explosion. (00:34:25)

Revealing mistake: When the Queen throws the first ball at the baseball game, if you look closely you can see the string which made the ball do its loops. (01:03:30)

Revealing mistake: Jane stands up and strips supposedly naked in front of Frank on their first date. In the widescreen DVD, it's obvious she has a skin colored top on.

Revealing mistake: Frank's plane is labeled near the front for the fictional Atlantic Overseas Airline. When Frank is speaking to the press, the plane's real TWA logo is still visible on the tail.

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.

More trivia for The Naked Gun

Question: I am watching "The Naked Gun" on the IFC Network, and during one of the commercials they asked a trivia question about the movie that I never saw answered. The question was, "Which famous comedian contributed a scene or gag for the movie", and the choices were Mel Brooks, Steve Martin, and one other name that I do not remember. Does anyone know the answer to this question? I can not find any information about it anywhere. Thank you.

Chosen answer: Mel Brooks. When Frank is undercover as the ump, one of the batters hits Frank in the face with the bat. This was a suggestion Brooks had made.
