The Omen

Continuity mistake: When Mrs. Baylock pushes Kathy from the hospital window, we hear the sound of breaking glass. However, when she plunges into the ambulance, there is no glass whatsoever, nor do we see any when she is falling. (01:24:30)

Continuity mistake: When Damien and his mother are at the zoo and are surrounded by baboons, they are in a small blue car. Suddenly, before they drive away, they are in a light colored station wagon.

Continuity mistake: When Thorn gets injured at the cemetery, it is in his inner left arm, but, later, at the hotel, the injury is now on the outside of his arm; the blood is not on the inner arm, which it is supposed to be.

Continuity mistake: When Gregory Peck is driving the car to see the old priest, his hands on the steering wheel are very low down, but when the camera is higher up, Peck's right hand is on top of the steering wheel.

Continuity mistake: When the Thornes go to church for a wedding, the man who opens their door is wearing a hat, but when Damian starts to act up, the man is no longer wearing his hat.

Visible crew/equipment: When the ambassador and the photographer are in the cemetery getting attacked by the dogs there are men standing behind a tree. I'm assuming they're the trainers - they are located when the photographer is trying to hop the fence. Look in the back right hand corner - there are about two or three men standing there.

Father Brennan: When the Jews return to Zion / And a comet rips the sky / And the Holy Roman Empire rises, / Then You and I must die. / From the eternal sea he rises, / Creating armies on either shore, / Turning man against his brother / 'Til man exists no more.

Trivia: The smile that Damien gives at the very end wasn't scripted. Originally, Damien was supposed to "look really mean," but Harvey Stephens couldn't keep a straight face: he started to smile, then laugh. Richard Donner decided that the smile made Damien look even more evil, so it stayed in the movie.
