Mistakes in the IMDb top 250 - page 11

237:

Audio problem: While Marcello Mastroianni is waiting at the station and Sandra Milo's train can be heard arriving off-screen, we hear much whistling by a steam train, but when it finally appears, the train is being hauled by a diesel locomotive. [As a side note/explanation - all sound in Italian movies, including the dialogue, is recorded afterwards, sometimes by different actors, eg. Claudia Cardinale in real life has a regional accent.]

238: Jaws

Jaws mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Quint embeds his machete into the wood at the side of the boat, but in the following wideshot the machete is gone. Then as Orca starts to move, when Hooper says, "He's chasing us, I don't believe it," the machete is back. But when the shark leaps onto the boat the machete is gone again, and then as the shark devours Quint the machete is back for him to grab, so he can valiantly stab the shark.
