Factual error: The security guard in the bank is carrying a revolver as a sidearm but has semi-automatic magazine pouches on his duty belt.

Other mistake: When the Libyans shoot at Doc Brown and the bullets hit his van they leave no bullet holes, just impact sparks. (00:29:10)

Question: What is the name of the music that plays right after the mayor gives his speech at the clock dedication?

AdmRose

Answer: The song is called "Battle Cry Of Freedom" written in 1862 by American composer George Frederick Root during the American Civil War.

Chosen answer: The song (right after the mayor's speech) is actually "Nearer, My God, to Thee" of Titanic infamy, but with an upbeat tempo. This plays the moment the clock is engaged and ends after the photograph is taken.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when the guy's head is in the toilet, blood is spilling out into the water. When the shot changes to an overhead shot of the body, the water has no blood in it.

Continuity mistake: After Amon shoots the second worker the camera is behind him and shows him aiming for another shot. The angle then changes to below and from the front and he is standing up with the rifle above his head.

Kelly's Heroes (1970)

Question: What type of Allied fighter destroyed the units vehicles? It doesn't look like any allied combat aircraft I've seen before.

AdmRose

Chosen answer: From the markings it looks like a P47 jug. Strange thing is it was equipped with rockets, which I have only seen outfitted on the P-38 lightning and the P-51 Mustang. Kelly's is a great movie but far from historically accurate. There is a country song Odd Ball Plays as the blow up the rail yard that not even close to having been released at the time.

Kelly's Heroes (1970)

Continuity mistake: After Cowboy spots the Tiger coming down the street the scene changes to a view of the three soldiers running from away from the bank from the viewpoint of the Tiger. The Tiger's turret is facing the soldiers. In the next shot the Tiger is shown in the distance with its barrel pointing straight forward. In the next shot, the turret is facing the fleeing soldiers again.

Continuity mistake: When Lando orders half the fighters to break off and return to the surface, an A-Wing and an X-Wing break off to the right. When Green Leader acknowledges, the same A-Wing and X-Wing break off to the right again.
