Witness (1985)

Trivia: Harrison Ford was very taken with the Amish and the beautiful scenery in which Witness was filmed. Mr. Ford is a supporter and contributor to the Lancaster Farmland Trust, which helps save and preserve precious family farmlands. The Krantz' farm (where Witness was filmed) was saved and preserved by this trust fund.

Trivia: Due to a severe back injury, Harrison Ford was not even present for most of the conveyor belt scene. It was mostly done using his stunt double. Harrison was added in later with close ups and reactionary shots.

Grease (1978)

Continuity mistake: When Danny is first shown at school, he is shown over Kenickie's shoulder speaking to a girl in a blue sweater. The immediate next shot, Danny is talking to a totally different girl in a purple sweater and a few other girls as well.

Trivia: When Claire goes to Madison's house, there is a framed picture of Madison and underneath it, there is a newspaper clipping from "The Guardian" that is very prominant. This certainly signifies what Madison was to Claire.

Factual error: When Claire pulls herself out of the bathtub, she falls right over the center of the tub. The bloody fingerprints would have been wiped away or completely smeared by her nightgown and bathrobe during the fall.

Cocktail (1988)

Trivia: Watch the patrons at the bar when Jordan comes to thank Brian. James Eckhouse is an uncredited extra who is seated at the far side of the bar. He later went on to play Brenda and Brandon's father on Beverly Hills, 90210.

Continuity mistake: When the Angels are dancing at Natalie's place, Alex is wearing very high wedge heels. When they tip over the couch, Alex is suddenly barefoot. (00:13:30)

Lynette Carrington

Revealing mistake: There is a scene where Natalie Cook is on her surfboard riding the curl of a wave. It appears to be her head superimposed over someone else's body. The coloring and movement don't quite line up. (00:24:10)

Lynette Carrington

Revealing mistake: In an early shot shown from the neighbor's house, it is established that the Spencers' house is quite a ways uphill. Some of the later shots where Claire is spying on her neighbors and looking at their home, the angle of view does not appear to be correct. The neighbors' house looks like it's a lot closer and more level with the Spencers' home.

Continuity mistake: When Claire goes to the Feur's house and sees Mary's shoe on the porch, she goes to pick it up. When she does, it is in a different position than when she originally saw it.

Lynette Carrington

Trivia: On the zeppelin, the Nazi shows around a flyer with Dr. Jones Sr.'s picture on it. At the second table, a woman shakes her head 'no' before even looking at the picture. Possibly just the character not bothering to pay attention, as could happen in reality, but worth looking out for.

Lynette Carrington

Other mistake: On the zeppelin, Indy's dad says, "You left just when you were becoming interesting..." Harrison Ford is mouthing Sean Connery's lines. (01:14:50)

Lynette Carrington

Continuity mistake: WHen Indy is hanging off the side of the tank, his face becomes completely caked with dirt. After he gets back up on to the tank, his face is relatively clean. (01:34:40)

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Indy appears at the entrance of the mining caves to free the enslaved children, he punches out one of the guards and he goes flying in the air and across the gravel. You can see two suspension wires attached to the actor to drag him back through the dirt. (01:27:45)

Lynette Carrington

Continuity mistake: When Indy and Elsa are wading in the petroleum looking for the knight's tomb, Elsa unbuttons and opens her jacket and starts to take it off. In the next shot she opens her jacket and takes it off again. (00:34:15)

Lynette Carrington

Trivia: When Indy and Elsa go under the library looking for the knight's tomb, they encounter an ancient picture of the ark of the covenant. As Indy inspects it, a few bars of "The ark of the covenant" music from Raiders of the Lost Ark plays.

Lynette Carrington

Audio problem: When Indiana is fighting one of the bad guys on top of the rhino's car on the train, the rhino sticks his horn straight between Indy's legs. Indy says, "Holy smokes" but if you look, he actually says something else. (00:07:35)

Lynette Carrington

Continuity mistake: Willie Scott's fingernails are considerably shorter in the nightclub scene compared to when she "burns her finger and cracks a nail" in the car. (00:04:45 - 00:12:35)

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Some bad guys throw knives at Indy as the band is seated and playing "Anything Goes". Then Indy throws a cymbal at one of the bad guys and the entire band is now gone. (00:09:30)

Continuity mistake: As Willie Scott frantically searches for the diamond after the ice has been spilled on the floor, the red glove on her right hand disappears. (00:09:35)
