Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (crew or equipment visible): Just after Alex Rodney is shot and carried back to the 'plane, the camera watching him pans round for a long shot of the group under their shelter. Sammi is seen to the left, being emotional, and a cameraman is seen standing filming him, presumably for a close-up which was not used.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): The camels used in the film are Dromedary camels. The camels used in the Gobi desert are Bactrian camels.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Elliot is first introduced, Towns is wearing his jacket. But the reverse shot, Towns is wearing a short-sleeved shirt and no jacket.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): When the rear cargo doors come off after hitting the terrain, the contents of the cabin, as well as a passenger, are shown to be violently 'sucked out'. The aircraft is not pressurized, so this could not be due to a great pressure differential between the cabin and the outside atmosphere. The mere fact that the door is open does not create a massive suction or draft, as is evident by military cargo and paratroop drops made from rear exit aircraft. Thus, while it might get noisy, and things might get shaken out, they would not get sucked out in this manner.
