Revealing mistake: The climactic chase occurs in an amusement park, supposedly in Brighton, England. But several things give away the real filming location, among them an ad for 15c (not 15p) snow cones, two very American-style phone booths, and best of all, a pole proudly sporting both a U.S. flag and a California state flag, visible in the background behind the phone booths.

Revealing mistake: The motorcycle chase is supposed to take place late at night. But in several shots, a cloud-strewn blue daytime sky can be seen, and long shadows on the streets indicate that the scene was actually shot either in the early morning or the late afternoon. (00:24:45)Jean G
Revealing mistake: Mark hides inside the grand piano - improbable (there's not enough room) unless the piano is a mock-up without any real harp or strings. And in fact, when he jumps out, you can see that there's nothing inside. Somehow, though, the piano still makes sounds when Dieter touches the keys. (00:27:00)Jean G
Revealing mistake: Waverly opens a file full of papers with a small photo of April's contact clipped inside. When we see a close-up of the photo, we can also see that the page under it is part of a script treatment. Odd thing for a spy agency to keep on file. (00:18:40)Jean G
Revealing mistake: Mark's stunt double during the fight on the mansion's porch is a very close match for him - except for the fact that he's about 6 inches taller. This causes "Mark's" height in relation to the man he's fighting to fluctuate noticeably (taller than, shorter than, taller than again) between shots. (00:37:15)Jean G
