Star Trek (1966)

Operation -- Annihilate! - S1-E30

New this month Revealing mistake: While Spock and Kirk discuss the phaser resistant creatures, Kirk declares that it may be a trap and to move out. When one of the flying parasitic creatures attacks Spock, in his first closeup just as Spock turns around we can see the thin wire leading from the creature to the right side of the screen, and the wire also casts a shadow on Spock's uniform.

The Waltons (1972)

The Rumor - S6-E14

Revealing mistake: At the mill, when John tells Buck that Willie Brimmer might be at the Montgomery cabin with Jim-Bob, in the next closeup of John we see a billowy trail of smoke at the bottom right corner of the screen, but the only people standing there are Elizabeth, John, and Buck, and none are smoking. Presumably, it was someone offscreen smoking too close to the camera (similar to a mistake in 1978's "Halloween"). (00:26:05)

The Carousel - S9-E11

Revealing mistake: While Cindy and Ben are going through Colonel Brunson's belongings Cindy finds the Adoption Decree, and begins reading it. The funny thing is there's a closeup of the document, and it's apparent that it's actually a studio contract. Even without pausing we can read things such as: "Use of Double," "Location Expenses" or "Damage to Wardrobe." Though if it's paused we can read entire lines such as: "Location Expenses: Where the services of the Artist are required to be performed outside of the City of Los Angeles or its environs, the Producer shall transport the Artist and the reasonable personal baggage of the Artist..."

Charmed (1998)

Rewitched - S8-E5

Revealing mistake: While Piper is trying to convince Paige to be at P3 for speed dating, Piper says, "I will resort to whatever I have to, besides you might actually meet someone you like," and after the quick shot of Paige, when it cuts to Leo holding Chris as he's standing in the doorway asking for baby Tylenol, the mirror's glass is green at the right side of the screen - for the special effects editing of the fake reflection.

Casino (1995)

Casino mistake picture

Revealing mistake: Near the end when Ace gets into his Cadillac, in the first shot facing the front of the car, there is a protective glass in front of Ace (the same width as the windshield) with the dashboard in between that glass and the windshield. Note the vertical edge of the glass is visible at the right side, and the rearview mirror's sticker on the windshield casts a shadow onto the second glass. During the stunt, the flames on the dashboard are between the glass shield and the windshield, keeping the actor safe from harm. (02:46:05)
