Fahrenheit 451

Revealing mistake: Near the beginning, Montag puts on the fireproof clothing to use the flamethrower. It's really footage of him later taking off the same equipment played in reverse.

Visible crew/equipment: Near the end when Montag arrives at the Book Peoples' commune, he is greeted and ushered into a house. There's a shot from just inside the building, looking out a window towards Montag and his host as they approach. As the POV shifts a little, a reflection of the camera becomes plainly visible in the window glass.

Trivia: In keeping with the theme of no books this movie has no text visible anywhere except the opening theatrical logo. Even the credits are not shown on the screen. The only symbols shown in the movie are numbers, such as the 451 medallions on the fire crews and their equipment. Signs can occasionally be seen in the background.

Trivia: The books seen burning at various points in the film include several of Ray Bradbury's novels (Fahrenheit 451 itself is one of these), as well as a French cinema magazine for which director Francois Truffaut once wrote a movie column.
