Mistakes are an inevitable part of life that affects us all. Even top Hollywood directors get it wrong, including Martin Scorsese who managed to flub "The Irishman" with historical inaccuracies and false geography, according to IMDB.

There are countless films that have been released with their share of blunders, which Stacker shed light on in a report that looked at the biggest mistakes from some of the best movies of all time. Here are eight of them:

  1. "It's a Wonderful Life" (1946). Who can forget the memorable scene where a group of partygoers jumps into a pool in this holiday classic? Look a little closer and you will see the same character jump in twice.
  2. "There Will Be Blood" (2007). In one scene of this epic drama, Paul Dano's character Eli Sunday downs a drink and leaves a second one unfinished, but the next shot shows two empty glasses.
  3. "The Adventures of Robin Hood" (1938). A car is the last thing you would expect to find in a movie that is set in 1191, but in one scene of this iconic film when one of Robin Hood's men dismounts his horse, you can see a vehicle clearly parked in the background.
  4. "Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope" (1977). The next time you watch this iconic film, look out for the marching stormtrooper who hits his head on a door that is being lowered.
  5. "Goodfellas" (1990). Martin Scorsese made a small but vital mistake in this epic gangster flick when Robert De Niro's character Jimmy takes a phone cord and wraps it around the neck of Morrie. The phone then rings despite being off the hook.
  6. "Saving Private Ryan" (1998). In one scene, soldiers scramble to save the life of a medic shot in the stomach but if you pay attention, you can clearly see the perimeter of a fake stomach worn by the medic when they rip his shirt open.
  7. "Gone with the Wind" (1939). This film is set in the mid-1800s, before the lightbulb was invented, but there are several scenes that contain lamps with bulbs and cords.
  8. "Touch of Evil" (1958). If you have not yet noticed the crew members that are visible in the scene where a bomb is being placed in the trunk of a car, go back and watch this film.
