Visible crew/equipment: When the BMW flips over and slides across the pavement, a rope is briefly visible towing it along right before making contact with and destroying the storefront. (00:06:15)

Visible crew/equipment: When Riggs turns up at the house as the pool cleaner you can see the reflection of the camera crew in the window as he walks along the balcony.

Visible crew/equipment: When they fall out of the hotel and into the pool the side shot shows two dark things under the water - this is the under water crew filming the close ups of the actors. The crew cannot be seen in any other scenes around the pool, only on the entry scene.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, when Riggs is in the cargo area, a gunman shoots at him, he rolls and starts emptying the clip into him - you see the bullet holes in the gunman. But as Riggs is face to face with the gunman, the holes disappear.

Chosen answer: 'Mandrake the Magician' was a comic strip that was popular (at least in Australia) in the 1970s. It featured the title character that was able to perform very elaborate magic tricks (including disappearing acts).
