Apocalypse Now (1979)

Continuity mistake: When Francis Ford Coppola appears in the movie as a TV director, he asks the captain to, "Just keep on going," and a small boy is playing on a black Agent Orange drum in the background. If you watch the labeling on the drum you can see that it's been moved between shots.

Apocalypse Now (1979)

Continuity mistake: In the first close-up shot of the soldier wounded in the courtyard the medic behind him tries to give him some water as the camera pans away to two Vietnamese civilians for a second. In the next shot the medic is still holding the canteen but the injured soldier now has something hanging out of his mouth, that looks like a piece of string, which wasn't there in the previous shot.

Apocalypse Now (1979)

Continuity mistake: After the woman tries to feed Captain Willard some rice he looks to his left and sees Colonel Kurtz standing there with one thin ray of sunlight coming down on his head. We saw this spot in the wide shot when the three soldiers placed the captain near the window and it's in the shade, plus the sun is not coming into the room from above but sideways from the right.
