Fiddler on the Roof

Continuity mistake: When Tevye goes into town before the Sabbath to make his deliveries, a bunch of men and women run up to him complaining about how late he is. Yet as soon as he starts filling the orders and talking there are only men around him. Where did the women go?

Visible crew/equipment: In Tevye's "dream", you can see the wires used to make Fruma Sarah's ghost fly. (Seen on TV broadcast.)

Audio problem: At one point near the end of the movie, you can hear Tzeitel's baby crying. Watch closely, and you'll see that the baby's mouth is not moving. It's even closed at times.

Trivia: At Orthodox Jewish weddings, while dancing is encouraged for the sake of bringing joy to the bride and groom, it is an established and accepted custom that the men and women dance separately so as to avoid a rather immodest atmosphere. Hence, the entire ballroom is divided in two; one section for the men, and the other where the women gather.
