The Rocky Horror Picture Show mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Eddie rides his motorcycle on the lab's upper level, in the second shot from behind him, just as he veers a bit to his left, the equipment attached in front of the windshield becomes visible (at the left). It's gone in other shots. (00:44:35)

Visible crew/equipment: In the lab, just after Brad is Medusa-fide, when Frank-N-Furter steps in front of Dr. Scott, two moving reflections are visible on the surface of Rocky's tank. One is Frank-N-Furter's and the other is the camera moving right behind him. (01:12:35)

Continuity mistake: When Eddie escapes the deep freeze, he wears three rings on his left hand: his middle, ring and pinkie fingers. Bizarrely, the pinkie ring actually disappears in quite a few shots, including when Eddie plays the sax and when he lifts Columbia, just before they mess around on the floor. (00:42:30)

Revealing mistake: When Dr. Scott's wheelchair is being pulled by Frank-N-Furter's magnet, just after passing Magenta and Columbia, Dr. Scott soars up the next flight of stairs. Look between the cobwebby banister bars and you'll notice that the 'stairs' are actually a flat surface. (01:01:20)

Continuity mistake: During dinner, the Stein mug in front of Rocky (not Dr. Scott's) switches repeatedly, from being to the right his plate to the left of his plate. Additionally, plates/serviceware appear and disappear from the table.

Continuity mistake: During 'Dammit Janet', just after Brad draws the heart on the doors, when Janet runs to the stairs her arms are outstretched as she holds the bouquet in her right hand in the close-up, but next shot it's in her left hand. (00:08:25)

Continuity mistake: At the start, when Janet catches the bouquet and shouts, "I got it," as she jumps up and down, she holds it in her left hand in the close-up, but in the next shot it's in her right hand. (00:06:15)

Continuity mistake: During 'Hot Patootie, as Eddie and Columbia canoodle on the floor, when the guests dance on the upper level their positions in the line change between shots. (00:44:10)

Revealing mistake: Funny how when Brad and Janet are led to separate rooms, their rooms are identical, right down to the folds in the chair material and missing drapery tassle fringes...

Visible crew/equipment: Just as Eddie rides his motorcycle down from the lab's upper level, in the shot from behind him, set equipment and a few crew members are seen gathered at the top right of the screen, just before the shot cuts away. (00:44:40)

Visible crew/equipment: In the lab, as Eddie rides his motorcycle on the upper level, in the shot from behind him, the large rectangular reflector/light screen is visible down below to his right. It is angled up, facing the upper level as he rides past. (00:44:35)

Continuity mistake: In the lab, during 'Hot Patootie', Eddie wears red suspenders clasped to his jeans. When he lies on top of Columbia, both back suspender clasps come undone, though the front clasps are still intact. In following shots both of Eddie's back clasps are on properly.

Emergency! (1972)

Snakebite - S3-E6

Revealing mistake: After Gage gets bitten by the rattler, when the driver of Tractor 2 begins ascending the cliff, there is a nice close-up as he passes and this young stuntie is most certainly not the older driver seen in this scene. Not to mention the watchless driver suddenly acquires a black watch and a plastic face shield attached to the helmet.

Emergency! (1972)

Emergency! mistake picture

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In nearly every episode, the dark blue jackets that Gage and DeSoto wear suddenly appear and/or vanish and then reappear, numerous times, while en route in their squad, or when they pull into the stationhouse and Rampart. Since stock footage is usually used when showing all the guys getting into their vehicles, Johnny's hair length may differ as well.

Emergency! (1972)

The Professor - S2-E15

Audio problem: At the site of the crashed plane, when the trapped pilot screams, "Help, I can't get out, the doors are jammed," his mouth movements do not sync with the words we hear. Then once he's out, it happens again when he says "I guess I'm a little shook."

Continuity mistake: Just before Pintel and Ragetti are about to fire Jack, the monkey, out of a cannon, the monkey and barrel point out of a partially destroyed gun port, with its hinged port lid missing. Once Ragetti lights it, in the close-up just as Jack blazes out, the frame of the gun port is perfectly intact, as is its hinged port lid above it. (02:15:45)

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Beckett boards the Dutchman and speaks to Jones, he has very noticeable dark facial stubble, but bizarrely, in his next close-up he is actually clean shaven, his wig curl has shrunk and his eyebrow hair is neater.

Face/Off (1997)

Face/Off mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Castor (as Sean Archer) is speared, as he stands there singing morosely his shirt is drenched in blood, but when he is next seen in the ambulance that blood on his shirt has vanished. Additionally, the cuts on his face produce blood trails which smear, when he is first speared, but in the ambulance his face is cleaned up and the blood trails are thin and neat.
