Goldfinger picture

Continuity mistake: In the first shots of the golf course, you see Goldfinger's Rolls parked to the far left of the main building, with Bond's car in the lot in the background. When the scene changes to the inside of the clubhouse store, the Rolls is now very close to the front of the store. At the end of the golf game the Rolls is back to the left of the main building and as the camera pans back you can see that the store is to the far right of the main building.

Dr. Strangelove picture

Continuity mistake: Throughout the movie the outside shots of the B 52 show a shadow on the ground. That shadow isn't of a B 52 jet bomber but that of a B 17 WWII prop. It isn't a B 29 either, for the cord of the B 29 wing is thinner than a B 17s; Also, the wings and fuselage are much longer. The most obvious clue is the shape of the B-17 vertical tail- it is unique to the B-17, and much different from that of the B-29.

The Last Man on Earth picture

Continuity mistake: About 25 minutes into the film, Vincent Price puts two vampire bodies into the back of his station wagon. Viewed from the open rear door, the woman is on the right side face up and the man is on the left side face down, and he drives off to the pit. In the next scene, he parks the car at the pit and when he goes to unload the bodies, the woman is now on the left side face down and the man is one the right side face up. For people who have died and then been killed again, they sure did move around a lot in the back of that car.

First Men In The Moon picture

Continuity mistake: Watch carefully as Bedford falls through the crystal prism into the underground city. On the surface he has his helmet on but in the very next shot, as he plummets down, he has no helmet. He explains that it must have 'fallen off' but you do not ever see it doing so. As the helmet would have to be twisted to be released, and no such action took place, it cannot have come loose.
