In the shot of Kolchak crossing a street and then a plaza between two buildings at night, the film footage has been flipped over (apparently because the director wanted Kolchak to be walking left to right, as opposed to right to left). This is obvious because in the background is a lighted store sign on which all the lettering is backwards, and Kolchak is seen carrying his camera on his "right" shoulder. When the shot changes and he enters an inside doorway, his camera is now seen carried in its usual place on his left shoulder. See more
