The Graduate (1967)

Deliberate mistake: When we look toward the bar, Mrs. Robinson's calf is well below the edge of the bar. In the next classic shot of Benjamin filmed from behind the bar through Mrs. Robinson's bent leg, her calf is above the bar. (00:12:30)

????

Deliberate mistake: After Tor Johnson attacks Paula and the police officer, a second officer shows up at the cemetery with half of the license plate on the patrol car taped over so it can't be read. (01:09:55)

????

Deliberate mistake: Whenever we see Vampira, they use the same footage, as she's always in the same place next to or near the wooden mausoleum. (01:10:15)

Rosemary's Baby (1968)

Deliberate mistake: Rosemary takes out the Scrabble game, trying to figure out what the anagram means, and spills all letters onto the floor. In the next shot the title of the book "All of Them Witches" appears on the floor without her ever touching them. (01:28:30)

????

Deliberate mistake: In the alien spaceship, Eros speaks of the "Solarminite", Jeff Trent calls it "Solinite" and Col. Edwards calls it "Solar-inite". (01:05:55 - 01:07:50)

????

Deliberate mistake: They keep using the same footage of Bela Lugosi walking in the cemetery, even the cars driving by out on the road are the same. (00:53:00)

????

Deliberate mistake: As Paula is chased by the ghoul into the cemetery the shots continuously change between night and day throughout the entire scene. (00:32:35)

????

Deliberate mistake: At Tor Johnson's funeral how on earth could they not see Vampira standing right next to them? (00:17:00)

????

Deliberate mistake: The saucer flies left to right past a church at the beginning of the movie. Later they just reverse the film as the saucer flies right to left away from the same church. (00:05:35 - 00:13:15)

????

Deliberate mistake: When the pilots are flying in the airplane there's a strange device above the co-pilots head. Later in the movie we see this same prop used again inside of the spaceship as the alien beauty Tanna opens up the hatch. (00:04:35 - 00:36:30)

????

Deliberate mistake: Rosemary believes that her baby is alive and proceeds to the closet that connects her apartment with the Castevet's and it takes well over a minute, and a bit of noise for her to undo the shelves. Dr. Sapirstein and Guy would have had to do the exact same thing when they broke into the apartment in the previous scene but it took them less than thirty seconds including the time it took to get into the Castevet's apartment from the hallway. (02:05:35)

????

Deliberate mistake: As Hutch entered their apartment with his overcoat buttoned, his gloves were in the jacket pocket underneath and not in the overcoat. Later we see him take them out of his jacket and leave them on the coffee table as he speaks to Roman. Before he leaves Guy goes to the closet and gets Hutch's coat and the one lone glove appears where it shouldn't be, back in his overcoat pocket. (01:01:50 - 01:07:20)

????

Deliberate mistake: As Rosemary is prepared to be raped by the devil she is lying on white sheets. In the next shot as she is being raped she's on black satin sheets. (00:47:30)

????

Deliberate mistake: Guy surprises Rosemary and tells her that maybe it's time that they can start having children. They have a romantic evening together (at least until the Castevet's show up) and there's a shot of the record player. A lot of time has gone by since Minnie and Laura-Louise paid Rosemary a visit and we saw the record player before, but everything is exactly the same, the yellow garbage pale in the kitchen, the shadows on the wall, and the same record playing on the record player. They obviously edited in the same shot from before. (00:30:25 - 00:37:30)

????

Deliberate mistake: Two trucks with magnetic interference units on them are shot at by the aliens and the exact same sequence is used again three shots later as they shoot at them again. (01:18:35)

????

Deliberate mistake: The aliens fire on a bell tower with a clock on it. In the next shot a different building blows up. (01:17:15)

????

Deliberate mistake: As the saucer lands on the White House lawn the aliens walk out and fire on some soldiers, killing them. A few shots later we see them walking backwards into their spaceship as the film is obviously run backwards. (01:16:25)

????

Deliberate mistake: After the aliens announce their intentions Dr. Marvin meets with Carol back at their hotel room. He tells her that she must take a flight alone back to Palm Springs and then leaves the room. In the end of the scene she picks up a copy of The Evening Star, which is an obvious prop as it has no date on it. (01:08:50)

The Exorcist (1973)

Deliberate mistake: Father Merrin says, "It is He who commands you", and we hear and see the ceiling crack above his head. In the next shot we see the ceiling above him and they are no cracks in it, but four shots later we see the exact same spot and now cracks appear even though we hear no more cracking over-dubs after the first one. (01:49:15)

The Exorcist (1973)

Deliberate mistake: Det. Kinderman walks up the stairs where Burke Dennings fell to his death and looks up at Regan's window. This could not possibly be the outside of her window because when we see the room from the inside as Chris closes the window near the beginning of the movie, there's at least 6 to 8 feet between the window and corner of the house. Now when we see it as he looks up, the window is right at the corner of the house. (01:12:35)
