Kolchak: The Night Stalker

Chopper - S1-E15

Revealing mistake: The headless motorcycle rider's torso and arms are not in proportion to a real motorbike rider. The torso is obviously made larger to accommodate the stunt bike rider.


The Vampire - S1-E4

Revealing mistake: In one scene, stock footage of a Boeing 747 flying is used to show Kolchak flying to his destination, and there is no commercial airline livery on the aircraft, just "Boeing 747." This footage was of one of the first 747's built.


Bad Medicine - S1-E8

Revealing mistake: Footage of the Diablero standing up after killing the first rich woman is re-used in the killing of the next rich woman, evident by the shot of the same curtains in the background for both murder scenes.
