Revealing mistake: We see Redfield's car strike the invisible barrier from a side angle. It jerks to a stop and the hood flies up, but there's no other front end damage - until the angle shifts to a forward view, a shot of an identical car that had been previously wrecked. Now there's suddenly considerable damage to the front end, and the hood is in a different, much more crumpled position.
Revealing mistake: The aliens cause a power fluctuation, and Mr. Tillman complains that all the lights in his house are flickering on and off. But the lamps in his living room are burning steadily. The "flickering" light is originating from what is obviously stage lighting above the set.
Revealing mistake: The main character's reflection in a mirror has come to life and much of the episode is a confrontation between the character and his reflection. Although they made an effort to reverse the image (the reflection wears his watch on the opposite hand and he bites his fingernails with the opposite hand) they forgot to reverse the buttons on his shirt.
Revealing mistake: When Rocky shoots pool and he gets all the balls into pockets at once,if you look at the top right pocket,you can see ball staying in pocket and showing that this stunt was done by using photographs,because ball would get into pocket and then proceed through the tunnel in table.
Revealing mistake: When Franklin leaves the check cashing window and walks to the right, a man with a pompadour haircut walks off screen left. In the next shot, with no time lapse, Franklin returns to his slot machine, and the same extra passes behind him from the right, once again exiting left. No way he could have moved that fast in the time allotted.
Revealing mistake: When the town's people are waiting for Garrity's arrival at midnight, we hear an old clock informing everybody it is midnight and they all turn around to see. But look at the time on the clock - you can quite clearly see that it is actually five minutes till 6 o'clock.
Revealing mistake: Close inspection reveals that all of the 9-foot-tall Kanamits are played by the same actor - Richard Kiel (later to become "Jaws" in several James Bond films). It's most apparent at the end, when two Kanamits stand near the spaceship in a split screen effect.
Revealing mistake: At the end, though Williams is shot multiple times (by several rifles, no less), there's not a drop of blood on him and no holes in his clothes. Also, his "corpse" is visibly breathing. He's clearly meant to be dead, so the fact that he's an alien with healing powers does not explain why he's still breathing - or why the bullets left no holes or blood on his clothes.
Revealing mistake: Mr. & Mrs. Castle wish for a million dollars in 5 and 10 dollar bills. But the bills they receive all have the same pattern printed on both sides, a pattern which which doesn't resemble any real US currency. There's also not nearly enough of the bills to total a million dollars.
Revealing mistake: Make-up for the space aliens was apparently changed after the closing scene in the store was shot and before any footage of the aliens' "true appearance" was actually taken. This resulted in Frisby, who is now telling the truth and finding no one to believe him, saying that the aliens had a single eye in their foreheads, when in fact, the aliens each had two eyes, in the traditional location.
