Other mistake: When Lieutenant Bauman starts speaking German, his last two words "especial mission" is said in a decidedly French accent. The correct German phrase would be "Sonderauftrag." Non-German terms like "Mission" were generally avoided in the Wehrmacht for ideological reasons.Movie Nut
Other mistake: As the camera looks at the now-crashed car, the position and condition it is in is impossible. Though funny, there is no way the car could have jumped up on the porch as shown. The front would have been crushed in, the wood of the porch damaged. The interiors of the doors are impossible given that the car would have been kept in an immaculate condition.Movie Nut
Other mistake: Baker goes to tap the rectangular spot to open the trapdoor, not only does he hit it once rather then twice, but it sticks in the pressed position. A moment later, Hogan hits it, but it stays in the pressed position rather than popping out. The sound of the pressing is played, but the button doesn't move.Movie Nut
Other mistake: After the smoke bomb goes off in Klink's office, there is a shot from the outside where the boys get a blanket to catch Klink. If you look at the window of the office behind them, you can see the smoke coming out in an up and down pattern, suggesting the smoke to be coming from a rig controlled by an out-of-sight crew member.
Other mistake: After the truck is stopped, Newkirk tosses a dart at the tyre in order to flatten it. Since the tyre hit was the rear tire, there should have been the track from the front tire, but wasn't. Also, a puny, hand-tossed dart couldn't have penetrated the thick construction of a heavy-duty truck tire, let alone flatten it in twenty seconds.Movie Nut
Other mistake: When stopping the truck and Schultz, the area directly behind Carter and LeBeau can be seen to be a matte painting. The reason is because where they are is completely covered in snow, but the open area is very little, and there is a huge snowdrift piled up at the wall.Movie Nut
Other mistake: When the boys are working on the "jigsaw" map, Klink and the guard come in. There is a gust of wind from their entrance. Trouble is, the gust that blows the pieces comes from behind LeBeau, blowing the pieces toward Newkirk's bunk, rather than toward the camera.Movie Nut
Other mistake: Anytime Hogan steals one of Klink's cigars from the back of the humidor, he takes the hinge pin out from the left of the box (camera's right). This time, he takes out the pin, got the cigar, and put the pin back in from just what looked like just left (camera's right) of center.Movie Nut
Other mistake: When the head counterfeiter comes in, there is a sign on the barracks behind him that says "BARRACK 3." Two problems with this. First, Hogan and company are housed in Barrack 3. Second, there is not a Barrack building between Hogan's building and Klink's office building.Movie Nut
Other mistake: When Carter goes to switch the full cup for the empty one, he accidentally sloshes water on Newkirk's hand and the fan of cards in it. When Carter goes to move the cups, look at Newkirk's hand. The cup exchange happens in front of the hand. The hand is out of range of the water.Movie Nut
Other mistake: When the recruiting officer is talking to Klink, Hogan and company listen in, as usual. The problem is the coffee pot. Any other time, they take off the top, take out the basket (which is the speaker) and plug in the power: this time, they forgot to remove the top to hear it, which would have muffled the sound. But the conversation was heard just the same.Movie Nut
Other mistake: In the end of the episode, after LeBeau said "Hit the deck!", the camera looks to the half-track. According to the plan, there was to be a nitro charge inside it to blow it up. Watch the tarp toward the front. It twitches upward in response to a small explosion on the ground, rather than inside. The sound effects complete the illusion.Movie Nut
Other mistake: In this episode, the German spy Hogan conducts around the Underground tunnels sees things (i.e., steam room, weapon manufacturing line, barber shop, etc.) that are never seen in the series again.Movie Nut
Other mistake: After Shultz herds the prisoners into the barracks, Hogan opens the door and motions to Newkirk in the tank to get going. Problem is, there are no side viewports for Newkirk to see Hogan, and it looks like he motions to the camera. Also, Shultz is at the wrong end of the building to see the tank go into the end of the barracks.Movie Nut
Other mistake: Klink has on his monocle, as usual. If you look closely, the monocle is a single lens, with no frame. From Episode 2 onward, the monocle has a frame and a gallery. Also, Klink wears it at an angle, not unlike the Penguin in the original Batman series, who also wore a monocle without a frame.
Other mistake: When the General arrives at Camp 13 and is greeted by Klink, he notices Hogan and ask Klink who he is. Klink only says he's the Senior POW, the General sends his Aide to get Hogan. The Aide addresses Hogan by name, but Klink never said Hogan's name. (00:07:40)norbertdx
