A couple of shots later the guitar is sitting in the seat next to him. When Laloosh challenges Crash to a fight, he's holding the guitar again.

Everybody's All American picture

Factual error: During Gavin Grey's first NFL game in 1957, the helmets depicted for both the Washington Redskins and Pittsburgh Steelers are historically inaccurate. The Redskins did not employ the burgundy helmets with the feather-stripe running along the center until 1958, and the Steelers didn't use black helmets with the Steelmark logo until 1963. In 1957, the Redskins used solid gold helmets while the Steelers used yellow helmets with a black stripe along the center and black numerals on either side.

Caddyshack II picture

Continuity mistake: When Randy Quaid is trying to make the shot on the giant windmill, he swings and hits the ball. You can see the ball flies almost vertical and way to the right of the windmill. However the next shot shows it landing right on target.

Eight Men Out picture

Factual error: At the beginning of the film, in the shots of the players in action being voiced over by Comiskey, Cicotte is marking the ball with his fingernail. You can see the modern logo of the sporting goods company "Rawlings" on the ball. It can be seen even more later in the film when Comiskey's assistant is turning a team-autographed ball over in his hands. Rawlings did not start making official major league baseballs until 1976, and even if they had made them in 1919, they very likely did not have the exact same logo. (00:04:30 - 01:28:55)
