Labyrinth (1986)

Audio problem: In his throne room, Jareth starts to sing, "Dance, magic, dance..." In the overhead shot when they sing the words, "Put that magic spell on me," he kicks the little guy up, then in the next front shot when he sings the second line, "Jump, magic, jump," and just before and during which he throws Toby in the air, in all these shots either his lips do not reflect the words heard or his lips move and no sound is heard.

Labyrinth (1986)

Labyrinth mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: At the start of the film, when Bowie sings the word, "Underground," the last word of the song, it's just at that moment the screen goes from black background to a backdrop of trees in the real park, which is the same moment the animated owl turns into a real owl, the wire attached to the real owl's left foot is visible. There is a jess (strap) around its left foot, that is also clearly visible when he lands on the obelisk in the park. (00:02:40)

When Sarah runs to him, Hoggle's head is now right up against the foot, while he lies there. Yet in the next shot as Sarah asks if he's alright, still lying on the ground, he is not near the giant foot. (01:17:50)
