Visible crew/equipment: After the first scene showing the plane starting up its engines and turning around, we are shown another scene of rioters throwing slot machines out of a club.

The object must be on the camera because when the camera pans to the right and down, the silhouette stays in the same position in the picture. (01:42:05)

Lenny picture

Visible crew/equipment: In the apartment scene with Dustin Hoffman and Valerie Perrine, he prances in front of a vanity mirror, and a big boom microphone is right over his head, hanging deep into the shot, reflected in the mirror. The boom microphone is quickly retracted, so they knew they had made a mistake, but the shot remained in the finished film.
