Suggested correction: Whether or not it is the same footage or just similar, it's not a valid mistake as there no continuity or factual errors involved, etc. It's trivia at best, if the two films can be tied together and there's documented reports of someone involved in the films admitting the footage was reused.

Other mistake: During Ms. Peel's fight with Bailey on the high wires, she kicks him in the groin, which he obviously grabs in agonizing pain. But just seconds later, he somehow has his hands grabbing the wires as she kicks him in the face. It just doesn't make sense how he can move on from the pain of a kick to the crotch so quickly.
