New this month Factual error: When Kelly convinces the German tank commander to blast the door open so they can get the gold, an 88 mm shell at that close range would have blown the bank apart. But only a relatively small hole is through the doors and the gold in the middle of the floor lies undisturbed.Mike Lynch

Corrected entry: When the board of directors are meeting at the Building and Loan, Mr Potter says that Harry Bailey was not a business man. George replies "You're right, my father was no business man. Why he started this building and loan I'll never know. What did you say a few moments ago the people save their money, save their money for what?" Mr Potter never said anything about saving money.

Corrected entry: In the money contribution scene at the end, when Violet Bick drops in some money, Jimmy Stewart says her name. You can read his lips, but there is no voice track of it.

Corrected entry: How come Charlie didn't get any publicity after he found his golden ticket? Everyone else did.

Deliberate mistake: Here, as in many other episodes, Doug and Tony are time-shifted wearing period (in this case, Viking) clothing. But they tumble into their next adventure magically wearing their left-behind 20th Century clothes again. (00:45:30)Jean G

Stupidity: The Engineer and Fireman of the Polar Express train crew should have known better than to not bend back the the metallic prongs of the cotter pin, which would have prevented the cotter pin from coming loose and causing all those problems in the driving of the train.Scott215

Corrected entry: If these tracks are in plain sight why would any of these kids doubt Santa? They could follow the tracks and go to the north pole.

Continuity mistake: After Jody kicks and knocks Bruneau Boyd to the ground, Jesse peels out in the pickup truck and Bruneau's body disappears, even though it should be lying next to the truck as it quickly departs.Scott215

Corrected entry: When George is drunk and crashes into the tree, the homeowner comes out and yells at him. The man says that his great-grandfather planted that tree, therefore this man and his family would have lived in Bedford Falls for generations. It is also apparent from the movie that George's family has also lived there for a generation or two. However, the homeowner doesn't know who George is. It is mentioned time and time again that Bedford Falls is such a small town. It would be impossible for George and this man not to know each other. (01:37:00 - 01:38:00)

Corrected entry: I could be wrong, but I reckon trained soldiers would rather seek cover than to take on tanks with only rifles and submachineguns. In the scene where Oddball's tank squad shoots a German train station to pieces, the Germans fire at the vehicles with their smallarms, even though it's just a waste of ammo (maybe they were just desperate?).

Corrected entry: During the discussion between Crapgame and Kelly in the supply depot, just after Crapgame realises that snatching the gold from behind enemy lines would be "the perfect crime", a jet airliner can be heard flying overhead. Jet aircraft were in use by the Luftwaffe - but only on their side of the lines with the exception of a few recon and bombing missions at the front, specifically on the Remagen bridge in March of 1945, months after the movie's timeframe.

Corrected entry: In the movie, screams of terror are heard outside as the Israelis are eating Passover inside. Very unlikely, as the Israelis lived in the land of Gosh-en separate from the Egyptians, and they all followed Moses' instruction to be protected as in Exodus 12: 28 - "And the children of Israel went away, and did as the lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they."
