Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

New this month Revealing mistake: When Cliff Booth is driving Rick's Cadillac, in some angles the speedometer is showing 0 (zero) as the car is driven down the boulevard.

New this month Continuity mistake: Cliff's dog is referred to as female but when it jumps up at a door towards the end of the film, it is male.

New this month Character mistake: In the Western scenes, when the characters are wearing spurs, they have the spur straps buckled on the wrong side (inside) of the foot. Spur strap buckles are supposed to be on the outside, not the inside, of the foot. Since it's wrong in every scene, it might be a comment on the TV show itself having low attention to detail.

New this month Revealing mistake: As Cliff walks his dog down the street, and out of camera view, the hippies' car headlights can already be seen reflected in the back end panel of the parked car along the street (waiting for their cue). The car headlights are fixed, as the car stands still "parked" for several moments before pulling into frame when Cliff exits stage right.


New this month Continuity mistake: When Cliff is talking to George who says he wants to sleep to not bother Squeaky, George has both hands over his tummy, fingers crossed. A shot later his left arm is suddenly by his side.

New this month Continuity mistake: During his conversation with the director, while discussing his costuming, Dalton's hair changes from messy and curled to gelled up and straight.

Factual error: Twice in the movie a Jumbo Jet (a Boeing 747) from Pan Am appears. The movie is set in 1969, when that plane had its maiden journey, but it wasn't flown commercially until 1970.

Continuity mistake: When Rick is talking to the girl on-set, he's smoking. A couple of times his hand is up in one angle, then immediately down in the next, then back.
