Frost/Nixon

Other mistake: The Sydney harbor scenes have the backdrop of the opera house. The buildings (aka "The Toaster") beside the opera house were not completed until 1998. The film was set in 1976-77.

Continuity mistake: When Bob Zelnick jokes about wiretapping Donald Nixon, his arm moves from resting on the tabletop to under his chin between shots. (00:39:40)

Yeah... I let the American people down. And I'm gonna have to carry that burden with me for the rest of my life. My political life is over.
