Operation Pacific

Continuity mistake: When the Japanese ship is about to be torpedoed, there are no numbers or letters on its side. In the next shot, when the ship explodes, a large white "265" is visible on the port side of the ship.

Revealing mistake: When the torpedo is fired at a Japanese ship, the underwater shot of the torpedo cruising reveals it being pulled by a long wire. It is also apparent that it was filmed in a tank with the reflection of the sun on the tank wall.

Continuity mistake: When the sub is being strafed by the Japanese fighter, John Wayne is wounded as he enters the doorway with his back toward the fighter. Yet, when he is taken to his quarters, it is his chest that is wounded and his back is untouched.
