The Invaders - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: The flying saucer the old woman hacks to pieces with an axe is noticeably not the same one that lands in her attic in the beginning. A cruder version was built for the axing scene because the model used was a studio keepsake - the original spaceship from the classic sf film "Forbidden Planet." (00:23:00)

The Invaders - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: The laser burns on the back of the old woman's left hand disappear when the knife is slicing at her through the door. They return a few shots later, though. (00:10:30 - 00:17:30)

The Invaders - S2-E15

Revealing mistake: When the old lady touches the door handle right before getting cut by the knife she gets paint smeared on her hand from the door handle before being cut with the knife.

Come Wander with Me - S5-E34

Trivia: Producer William Froug rejected an extremely nervous young singer/actress auditioning for the part of Mary Rachel, and recalls thinking that "I'll probably kick myself. She'll probably be a big star." He turned out to be right on both counts. The aspiring young singer's name was Liza Minnelli.
