King of Kings

Continuity mistake: When Jesus is being flogged, he is turned over onto his back, and whipping is heard. Later on, no marks are to be seen.

Revealing mistake: Have a look at some of the beards (and wigs) in this movie, the facial hair is coming loose on several of the disciples' beards.

Factual error: At the end of the film, Mary Magdalene approaches Jesus just as he has arisen from his tomb, at first shocked that he has arisen. As Jesus is talking to her and motioning with his hands, it is plainly clear that he has no nail marks/stigmata, when he should have. (See John 20: 24-29, where-in the resurrected Jesus shows "Doubting Thomas" the nail prints in his hands.)

Trivia: This film was the first since the days of the Hayes Office to show Jesus' face. Films depicting Jesus during the Hayes Office years did not show his face because of opposition by religious groups who found it inappropriate.

Trivia: Jeffrey Hunter, the actor playing Jesus, had his chest and armpits shaved for the part (why is anyone's guess). He was also barred from giving interviews.
