Return from Witch Mountain

Continuity mistake: When Tony and Tia are being driven to their hotel, the same footage is shown behind them a few times e.g. A truck turning off the road when their driver shouts at an overtaking driver and a few minutes later when he shouts at the same driver again.

Revealing mistake: At the beginning, as the flying saucer lands at the stadium, the shadow the ship cast doesn't change size as it gets lower to the ground.

Factual error: It was mentioned the museum has $3 million in gold bars. At 1978 prices, that is about 280 pounds. Gold is fairly heavy and the size of the bar shown in the film looks like 25 pounds. Assuming about 25 pounds per bar, I counted 134 bars or 3,350 pounds or almost $36 million dollars. I guess a big stack of gold bar looks better than a small stack of 11 bars.
