Quatermass and the Pit

Visible crew/equipment: As Quatermass drives back to the spaceship in a cab, just before it is to be drilled, the film crew can be easily seen in the cab's windows. A woman with a white cap can be seen holding a script. Later when the police use a megaphone on their car to announce the spaceship is a hoax, you can again see the same woman with a white cap in one of the windows of the police car.

Visible crew/equipment: As the drillman was removing his equipment from within the spacecraft, the gravity became nonexistent and all the tools began to float. You can easily see wires on all the tools - especially the flashlight.

Revealing mistake: The flashlight that the drillman used when the lights went out around the spaceship didn't match the light from the spot used by the film crew.
