The Twilight Zone

A Most Unusual Camera - S2-E10

Revealing mistake: The crooks in this episode appear to have obtained the same pile of funny money that the Castles received in "Man in the Bottle." The bills don't even vaguely resemble any real U.S. currency. (00:20:25)

Jeff Swanson

The Man in the Bottle - S2-E2

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. (00:12:30)

Mr. Dingle, the Strong - S2-E19

Revealing mistake: Dingle lifts the bar bully over his head and twirls him around. But the dummy used to achieve this effect has a distinctly lifeless, plastic face, and more than once, the wires suspending it are visible. (00:18:00)

Dust - S2-E12

Revealing mistake: The sky behind the hanging scene at the end has several prominent wrinkles in it, betraying the fact that it's not a sky, but a cloth backdrop. In some shots, you can also see shadows on the cloth. (00:19:00)

Static - S2-E20

Revealing mistake: In the boarding house hallway, Ed yanks the pay phone's receiver off the hook - and the entire wall to which the phone is attached wobbles. (00:11:00)

Mr. Dingle, the Strong - S2-E19

Revealing mistake: When Mr. Dingle lifts the bench, you can see the cables holding it up.

A Thing About Machines - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: When the car is approaching the pool to push the man into the water, the tires tracks are visible in the grass, showing that the car had already made that trip. Either tracks from an earlier take, or the scene was filmed and then played in reverse, to be safe for the actor.

Revealing mistake: As the Venutian asks the Martian to play music, the edges of the fake skin around the third eye is visible.

Nervous Man in a Four Dollar Room - S2-E3

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 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.

Nervous Man in a Four Dollar Room - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: When Jackie pulls the wardrobe from the wall and spins it around, the mirror briefly reflects an area beyond where the set ends.
