McHale's Navy

Continuity mistake: In the scene where McHale rides his motorcycle out of the boat, the machine gun on the aft deck is off center (so he can drive past it). The rest of the time it's on the centerline of the boat.

Continuity mistake: When Maj. Vladikov fires a missile at McHale's boat the missiles are fired straight up in the air but the next second they are traveling perfectly horizontal.


Continuity mistake: When the cuban cop arrests the guys, he's on the phone and when he hangs up the phone he states that these 4 American Navy guys are going to allow him to see President Castro. He makes the statement and then sits in his chair and puts his cigar in his mouth. The camera angle changes to McHale who is looking in the window and we see the cop sitting down and putting the cigar in his mouth again.
