The Fearless Vampire Killers

Factual error: The problem with firing a cannon on steam power is to have the boiling water build enough pressure inside the barrel, with no leaks or openings to release it before its time. The professor's scarf and the plug hammered into the fuse hole (which also flies off just before the shot) wouldn't be good enough as pressure restrainers.

Continuity mistake: In the final sequence, when Sharon Tate awakes from death as a vampire, she rises and sits straight up; but in the next shot, when she buries her teeth into Polanski's neck, she leans back in the sled's seat before attacking him.
