Charley Varrick

Plot hole: Swapping his dental x-ray records with his deceased partner won't convince anyone that Varrick is dead - then (as now) the patient's name appears on the x-ray.

Audio problem: In the scene at the end where Joe Don Baker is chasing Walter Matthau's plane around the junkyard, you hear the unmistakable sound of tires screeching on pavement, yet the surface of the junkyard is all dirt.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the film when "Molly" is chasing Varrick's aircraft, the front fenders of his car have miraculously repaired themselves having been stoved in earlier when he crashed into various other cars in the scrapyard as he first went for the kill.

Question: The police find the accomplice's body in the trailer. In the last scenes the same body appears in the trunk of the car before it explodes. How did it get there if police had discovered it earlier?

Chosen answer: The police never find Harman (the dead guy). Charley was hiding outside the trailer when Harman was killed and he's the one who found him and took his body. When the police bust into the trailer, no one (dead or alive) is there.
