Continuity mistake: In all the overhead helicopter shots the shadows are very long. The shots on the ground have less of a shadow indicating they were done several hours later. (00:37:50 - 00:38:45)

????

Continuity mistake: In final performance sequence watch for Ringo's mysterious moving bongo drums. They're on his right and disappear, then reappear, disappear and then reappear several times. (01:22:45 - 01:24:05)

????

Factual error: When they sing "I Should Have Known Better" look at Paul's left wrist - he's wearing a metal ID bracelet. Anyone who plays guitar knows that they jangle against the strings. He makes sure in any real live performances that it is tucked up in his sleeve away from the strings. (00:13:40 - 00:34:20)

????

Visible crew/equipment: In their final performance look closely and you can see director Richard Lester moving through the shot. He's between the Beatles and the audience. (01:16:30)

????

Audio problem: When Ringo turns on the transistor radio, he plays with the volume control, but the sound on the radio doesn't change until after he lifts his finger. (00:07:00)

????

Continuity mistake: Wilfrid Brambell asks Paul to sign a Beatle picture and he uses a ballpoint pen. Later, he copies them over using the master copy that The Beatles signed with ballpoint pens. Their signatures are now different (done with a thick felt marker) so they can stand out better in the black and white shot. (00:09:10 - 00:45:50)

????

Continuity mistake: When Paul's grandfather is below the stage the pictures are on his left. As he emerges on the stage the pictures are now on his right. (00:46:00)

????

Continuity mistake: In this scene George passes a poster that reads "Hughes and Macready". Two shots later it's back in a different place place. (00:42:10)

????

Continuity mistake: The stage lift that Paul's grandfather is sitting on while signing the pictures is larger, and a different color that the stage lift he comes up on in the middle of the play. (00:45:45)

????

Continuity mistake: The makeup on the boy that Ringo meets keeps changing.

????

Continuity mistake: The clock on the wall is constantly changing time in this scene. You can see it several times and you can see its reflection in the mirror. (00:47:00)

????

Continuity mistake: When the Beatles run out into the field it's an overcast day. In the very next scene the sun is shining. (00:37:50)

????

Continuity mistake: Watch the clock on a wall. Six minutes of the movie go by but that clock hasn't moved one minute. (00:39:50 - 00:46:25)

Niagara (1953)

Continuity mistake: Sunlight is coming into this room from all directions. At first it is coming from the right of the screen. Then when Denis O'Dea goes into the kitchen (screen left), sunlight is coming from the other direction. (00:48:40)

Niagara (1953)

Visible crew/equipment: The scene when Jean Peters jumps onto the little island is very well lit. You can see the reflections of 10 or 15 spotlights on her. (01:25:40)

Dr. No (1962)

Revealing mistake: When Dr. No crushes the Buddha in his powerful deformed hand, watch when he first touches it. It is made out of rubber. (01:29:00)
