High Spirits (1988)

Continuity mistake: Graham is on the bed as it comes crashing down the stairs. He proceeds to disappear, reappear, disappear in the group shot and then finally reappears once again.

The Great Race (1965)

Continuity mistake: Ms. Dubois takes off her sunglasses during the discussion regarding emancipation and sex, and places them in her lap. Next shot of the Leslie Special racing through town, she is wearing them. Back to the discussion, she is not wearing them. btw: I love the expressions on Tony Curtis during the discussion, and the extras at the end of the race.

Factual error: Look to the right of the table lamp, there is a bottle of Myers Rum that has the modern plastic (silver/clear) cap and plastic pour spout. Not 1940s era.

Other mistake: Subtitle (English) appears to be incorrect: "He is setting the scions of criminal investigations back 1000 years" should be "He is setting the science of criminal investigations back 1000 years." "Scions" is a description of the branches of a tree.

Trivia: Maria (Elke Sommer) cannot refrain from laughing at Peter Sellers' antics during the interrogation. She is trying to stifle her laughter.

The Shadow (1994)

Continuity mistake: During the bomb deactivation, the countdown clock is not in sync with the editing. Bomb clock is at 1:02:54 and counts down to 1:02:50, but at next shot ten seconds later the timer is at 1:03:00, a relapse of ten seconds.

Enough (2002)

Trivia: The house at the marina is the same house used in the movie "The Island". They escape from the underground bunker and trace their (clone) host(s), Lincoln Six Echos, who lives in the identical house at the marina. Look at the staircase.

The Shadow (1994)

Continuity mistake: As the atomic bomb is being deactivated, the floor is stationary. When the bomb casing drops to the floor, the floor is rotating, and sends the bomb down the hallway.

Spaceballs (1987)

Audio problem: The radar operator (making the sounds of a garbled intercom) is laughing through his next line "I'm having trouble with the radar, Sir." (After/when Dark Helmet throws the intercom across the control panel).

Goldfinger (1964)

Question: Q demonstrated the switches for the left and right front-wing machine guns - why is the "right" control on the left and vise versa?

turkman143

Chosen answer: They're not. Q was just indicating to Bond that these were the wing machine guns, he wasn't stating which was which.

Continuity mistake: The ring on Blofeld's little finger switches from his left to his right hand in different shots.

Goldfinger (1964)

Factual error: The homing device shows Goldfinger traveling North, from Geneva. The mountains in the long shots are on his right (looking west)?

Dr. No (1962)

Factual error: Bond is worried that Dr. No has picked up the sails of Honey's boat on his radar, as indeed the good doctor has (in the movie), but radar systems cannot detect cloth or a wooden mast.

Dr. No (1962)

Continuity mistake: The dashboard of Bond's car in Jamaica keeps changing colour, from red to black, and back again.

Other mistake: When Tatiana enters Bond's room, he is about to take a shower. He never goes and turns it off.

Continuity mistake: During the interview with Maria, the Inspector's pants are torn when removing her file with a key on a chain, the Inspector's shirttail is exposed. When he walks back to his desk and calls his assistant on the intercom, the shirttail is no longer visible. When Hurcule returns after escorting Maria back to prison, the Inspector turns away from the window, and his shirttail is again exposed.

Trivia: When Clouseau spins the globe in his office after the first interrogation of Maria, the part calls for him to catch his hand. Peter Sellers ad-libbed a line about Africa being all over his hand. Just before the dissolve to the next scene, the actors start to grin at the ad-lib.
