Audio problem: When Hogan is taking pictures of Shultz in front of the halt-track (really, getting shots of the control panel), in the second photo, the shot is shown as if it's Hogan looking through the camera. He starts on Shultz's face, but pans down and to the right to get the control panel. Just as the view gets on the panel, you hear the shutter click, just before the camera fully settles on the panel.Movie Nut
Revealing mistake: When the guys are by the half-track keeping Shultz busy, if you look just above and to the left of Shultz's head, you see some tall fencing at the top of the hill in the distance. From the set up, if appears to be a baseball field outside of the studio property.Movie Nut
Revealing mistake: When the men are in the yard during their exercise period playing football, there is a wide shot of the yard. The half-track is to the left of the screen with Shultz next to it. If you look above the barracks, the Desilu water tower and a large metal building, possibly a studio building, can be seen.Movie Nut
Continuity mistake: After Burkhalter relieves Shultz of command, and Klink is reinstated, Klink sits behind the desk. On the blotter is a letter opener that Burkhalter was toying with, and a black covered notebook. After sitting, Klink reaches in his jacket pocket, pulls out the same notebook, and reads from it. The shot cuts to Shultz and back, and the book Klink read from is gone, (presumably back in the pocket) and the one on the desk is gone.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
Revealing mistake: When the men are in ranks for roll call, it's snowing heavily. Given the pitch of the barracks' roofs, there shouldn't be any snow sticking. Therefore, if looked at closely, it can be seen that the "snow" on the roofs is painted in place.Movie Nut
Continuity mistake: When Klink and Hogan are looking at the Mustangs, Hogan has just sipped his coffee and holding the mug at chest level, at the top button of his coat. When the shot changes, he's holding it waist high. Also, the flight line full of planes is a grainy black-and-white projection super imposed in the shot of the window.Movie Nut
