When the nurse calls the sheriff's office to report that Nancy has escaped, Deputy Charlie writes the details down with his left hand. But as he runs out of the office his gun and holster are on his right hand side. A left handed person would holster a weapon on the left side.

The station wagon that the 30-foot giant picks up is a 1958 Plymouth. The car that lands on the ground is an early 1950s Chevrolet. When it cuts back to the car, it's a 1958 Plymouth.

Errors in geography 

In the first scene, a newscaster describes sightings of a strange object over the Barents Sea; Cairo, Egypt; Capetown, South Africa; and Auckland, New Zealand. He then walks over to a globe to show the flight pattern and points out the locations on it: Barents Sea, Cairo, Auckland (clearly pointing to South Africa), and then New Zealand.

When giant Nancy pulls Harry out of the tavern and shakes him around - it's rather obvious that what the actress is clutching is a porcelain-faced baby doll. The head of the doll can be partly seen at the top of the frame.

Mrs. Archer owns a 1958 Plymouth station wagon. The butler and the sheriff drive it in search of the giant alien in the woods. After an altercation in which shots are fired by the sheriff, the giant picks up the Plymouth wagon, throws it to the ground and, mysteriously, the Plymouth station wagon turns into a 1949 Chevrolet Station Wagon. Note also, that when the giant alien picks up the Plymouth wagon, the still frame is cut from the movie ad moved about to simulate the car's movement!! The slow motion action reveals the station wagon: 1949 Chevrolet Styleline Deluxe Woody Wagon.
