Perry Mason (1957)

The Case of the 12th Wildcat - S9-E8

New this month Other mistake: Perry, Paul and Della attend a Wildcats football game at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Stock footage shows a packed stadium. After the game ends, a close-up shows the three exiting the stadium along with several other people. The next scene takes place outside the entrance to the Coliseum. In a long shot, only two cars and six people are visible. In 1965, the Coliseum's seating capacity was 101,574. Where did everyone go?

However, the ship is just starting to pull away from the dock and Harold is on the side of the boat overlooking the dock. There is no way he could have seen sharks and rowers.

Grandma's Boy (1922)

Grandma's Boy mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In a scene set in 1862, Harold Lloyd portrays his own grandfather, a Confederate soldier. An elderly woman gives him a tiki-like lucky charm which she says will protect him as he confronts leaders of the Union Army. After he successfully fights off two soldiers he holds the charm in his left hand, but the close-up shows the charm in his right hand, then it's back in his left hand in the next shot.

Matlock (1986)

The Godfather - S8-E19

Revealing mistake: Ben Matlock is hosting a pre-wedding party for his goddaughter. Several cars are parked on both sides of the street in front of Ben's house. Each time the front door is opened, the view seen from inside the house looking out is the same matte painting used in every episode. It shows a house and trees but no cars.

Matlock (1986)

It (1927)

Continuity mistake: To prevent two welfare workers from taking the child of her unemployed roommate, Betty Lou Spence claims the baby is her own. A newspaper article, shown in close-up, says she fought "all who sought possession of the tiny child." The word "possession" is hyphenated. One line of the article ends with "pos-" and the next line begins with "session." When the newspaper is shown again, the hyphenation is different. One line now ends with "posses-" and the next line begins with "sion."

The Scandal - S9-E2

Character mistake: Billy has second thoughts about selling his late sister's beach house to a developer who plans to tear it down and build a hotel.

Perry Mason (1957)

The Case of the Fanciful Frail - S9-E24

Other mistake: Park Milgrave finds a small chest full of realistic counterfeit money in Bruce Strickland's apartment. (Counterfeit money was not used for this scene. The chest actually contained three stacks of dollar-sized paper with a real bill on the top of each one.) Milgrave dumps the money into a metal urn and lights it on fire but the money he dumps out is play money, which does not look even remotely like real money.
