Continuity mistake: When Howl first flies with Young Sophie, he wears a ring on each hand. As they take off, one of the rings momentarily vanishes.

Factual error: When William Holden visits the Special Operations HQ for the first time a black vehicle is seen pulling in to the complex. The car is a 1948 Dodge or other Chrysler product which had not yet been manufactured.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Terry is in the coop with all the dead pigeons, he is holding a dead pigeon in one of his hands, and he grabs the hook with the other hand. But when he stands up the pigeon and the hook have switched places.

Other mistake: During the rigged card game, the angle at which the hidden camera is shown would not have supplied a picture with the view from behind Eddy's shoulder, as is shown on the screen.

Factual error: In the last scene of the chess game, you can see that both the Knight and Death have castled. Castling was introduced to the game of chess in the 16th century, well after the film is set.

Factual error: In a scene that takes place in 1956 or 1957, Alicia Nash places an orange Tupperware container in the refrigerator. Although Tupperware first became very popular in the mid-50s, the particular model of Tupperware used in the film was not introduced until the late 60s or early 70s.

144: Casino

Revealing mistake: At the beginning of the film where Robert De Niro gets into his car and it explodes, you can clearly see the cut where they have replaced him with a dummy.

Factual error: The filibuster scene gives the impression that the Senators were powerless to stop Jefferson Smith's speech. However, they can make a speaker shut up if at least 3/5 of the Senators vote to. From the Senators' reactions, a lot of them probably would have voted to silence Smith. (Clearly, if this had happened, the movie would be much less interesting).

Continuity mistake: At a meeting to do with the hospital's dealings, one man, Mr Broadbeck, objects to the Elephant Man being a patient in the hospital - in the beginning he is wearing spectacles, but, a few seconds later, the spectacles are gone.

The Wolf of Wall Street mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the very last scene in New Zealand when Jordan is giving a motivational speech, he approaches his first target in the audience and says 'Sell me this pen.' As he does so, he holds out a pen in his right hand. When we cut to the shot to the person's face, we see that the pen is in Jordan's left hand; this goes on and on with every person. (02:52:10)

Allister Cooper, 2011

Continuity mistake: As V attacks all of Creedy's men with his knives, in one shot he cuts one man's neck, and blood sprays onto the man's face, but in the next shot as the man falls, his face is clean.

Blade Runner mistake picture

Revealing mistake: Near the beginning of the film when Deckard and the other cop take off in the car to go to the police station, you can see the cables lifting the car up into the air. (00:10:05)

Continuity mistake: When Annabelle is helping Johnny fill the locomotive water tank, the water spout comes loose and Annabelle gets soaked. A few seconds later, her hair and clothes are completely dry again. (Later, in her memoirs, Marion Mack said she was not told this would happen and it was a complete surprise to her!). (00:51:00)

Revealing mistake: Just before Anthony Dawson is going to be stabbed to death by Grace Kelly with a pair of scissors, you can see for a very short moment that the scissors are already attached to his back.

Continuity mistake: When Renton goes home with Diane, after they finish having sex, she tells him to get out and leave the room. As Renton sits up, it's very obvious that he's not wearing any protection. Not thirty seconds later, he peels off his condom in the hallway.

Gone with the Wind mistake picture

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Ashley is brought back wounded from the raid where Scarlett's husband Mr Kennedy was killed, Melanie grabs an oil lamp to follow the man carrying Ashley to the bedroom and you can see an electrical cord hanging down from it. (00:50:45)

Factual error: Walt's medical records contain an error - on the left side of the folder, his address is listed as "Detroit, CA" and it's correctly listed as "Detroit, MI" on the right side, although as pointed out in another entry, the house number is completely wrong in the medical records.
