7. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
In this shot here you can clearly see, to the left of screen, a guy dressed in a white cowboy hat, sunglasses, and a t-shirt. Obviously this is a wayward film crew member and not a futuristic pirate crew member. Either way, it’s bizarre this shot made it through the editing process.
6. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Sticking with crew members left in shot. During the dueling scene in Chamber of Secrets, Harry smashes Malfoy to the ground with a spell. As Snape picks him up, to the left of screen you can clearly see a cameraman intently watching the action. If only he was wearing Peverell’s Cloak of Invisibility.
5. Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines
In this scene there is a blatant change in planes. In the first shot we see on the side of the plan the alphanumeric code N3035C, then moments later when the aircraft takes off it displays the code N3973F. I’m sure basic continuity was the least of the director’s worries when working with such a poo-poo script.
4. Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
This one is pretty famous now and it’s quite hard to show using a still image. But in the scene where Indie comes face-to-face with a cobra, there is actually a plate of glass separating the two. In the original VHS release it was easy to spot however it was removed in the DVD re-release. So thankfully Harrison Ford’s beautiful face was never at risk.
In the chariot chase scene in Gladiator, when one of the carts tips over you can clearly see a gas canister fastened to the bottom of the chariot. Perhaps the secret to the success of the Roman empire was the early discovery of pressurised, hydrocarbon gases?
2. North by Northwest
In the background of the famous restaurant scene in Hitchcock’s classic North by Northwest, you can see a small boy anticipating the loud bang the prop gun is about to make. He puts his fingers in his ears knowing full well what is about to happen.
When Elsa sings the now iconic ‘Let it go’, we see an interesting character revelation. Aside from her talent for manipulating ice, she demonstrates another bizarre ability. She shows us that she’s capable of morphing her pony tail through her shoulder! If you look closely as she let’s her hair down, it clearly slides right through her arm.
