Joe Torre: Curveballs Along the Way picture

Revealing mistake: Towards the end of the film when the Yankees are trying to close out Game 6 of the World Series you can tell the "real" footage they use is not from the World Series. They are playing the Atlanta Braves in the World Series but you can see the Baltimore Orioles logo on the field in a number of shots.

Becoming Jane pictureBecoming Jane mistake picture

Buster picture

Revealing mistake: The "Great Train Robbery" actually took place on a two-track railway near Cheddington - the West Coast Main Line. However, the filming took place on the Great Central Railway steam line near Loughborough, which only had one track at that time. They laid a second track for the filming, but omitted to cut down a large tree at the end of the rails, which would block the path of a train. This is blindingly obvious, especially as they show this "atmosphere shot" twice. The tree is still there the second time.

Gods and Monsters picture

Revealing mistake: After Whale compliments Clayton for the marvellous shape of his head, Clayton pulls faces at himself in the side mirror of his pick-up before he drives off. Considering that the camera is positioned at hip level and we see his face in the mirror he couldn't actually see himself. (00:24:40)

Rudy picture

Revealing mistake: Just before the start of the final game which is supposed to be in December we see several shots of the parking lot where it is snowing cold and obviously winter, but yet just before the game starts the camera shows a wide shot of the stadium where you can see rows and rows of lush green trees in the background.

Hacksaw Ridge picture

Revealing mistake: When the stretcher is being lowered down on the line, the high tension steel wires can be seen under the hessian rope.

Suggested correction: I don't see this as an error, because just before they lower him down; it is obvious that they have rigged a tripod and cable at a much lesser angle than straight down the face of the cliff. Once the cleanup phase started; additions like this would have been normal to remove the dead and wounded.

A River Runs Through It picture

Revealing mistake: When Norman MacLean drops off Neal Burns after he falls asleep naked in the sun, Neal gets out of the car still naked with his clothes bundled in front of him. The camera angle switches to the rear view and the sunburn makeup on his back makes it look like he was wearing a bikini. His butt and back must have touched the car seat and rubbed off the makeup.

Hoffa picture

Revealing mistake: Very poor diopter work on the Las Vegas stage: the audience is "split in half", one part very blurry behind DeVito's head, and the other half crisp and clear.

Cool Runnings picture

Revealing mistake: The first scene where they are trying their homemade bobsled, right after coach tells them they need 6 seconds flat, they use the same scene when Junior flips over the bobsled (3 times) but from different angles. Twice when coach is timing them and again right after where they are pushing coach in the VW bug. Junior flips over and lands on Brenner, and Sanka does the same 2 spins and lands on his knees. (00:26:45 - 00:27:20)

Yankee Doodle Dandy picture

Revealing mistake: In one of the last scenes of the movie when the Younger Generation visits George they drive into the scene in their old jalopy Chevrolet. The only problem is, from the front end shot, anyone can see that the body moldings and lines of the car body don't line up with the hood. Also the gas filler cap is visible, in the same shot, on top of the cowl right under the windshield, revealing they hung the front end of a Chevrolet on the front of a Model "A" Ford Deluxe Phaeton. The only car ever produced with a gas tank filler on the cowl right in front of the windshield - Model "A" Fords. Chevys had too much wood in them during the '20s & '30s. They all ended up being infested with termites. So when this movie was made just 10 or 11 years after they were all produced, no Chevys could be found for filming. Chevy Emblem is visible on the radiator shell, but it's a Ford Model "A". Also the four distinctive vent doors available on Chevys, from the day, are visible instead of the louvers of a Model "A" Ford hood. The Cowl Lamps (Parking Lights) are also Model "A". (01:52:00 - 01:54:10)

Druids picture

Revealing mistake: When Vercingétorix leaves the Romans to go to Gergovia there is a stone mason by the road carving what is probably a distance marker. The man's chisel is obviously not in contact with the stone - while he is banging it with the hammer it is waving around in the air. (00:17:00)

Cleopatra picture

Revealing mistake: When Caesar's ship arrives in the Alexandria marketplace, he tells his men to "go marketing" rather than force their way through the crowd with swords. Rufio says "you're not serious?" He then silently mouths along with Caesar's reply, "We shall shop our way to the palace steps." (00:11:30)
