These are the mistakes that have been
found in Charlie Chan in the Secret Service.
Many of these have been found by friends
of Maven's and they are accredited accordingly!:
When George Melton blows up the ships
in his lab at the beginning of the movie, the background doesn't match the mid-shot.
And the bomb . . . all were dummies
. . . so how did they explode when he threw one? If he had thrown the loaded one, they would all be dead . . . why?
Because if you remember the inventor said if that one was to go off it would blow everything within 2 blocks to bits . . .
so what is it that Tommy threw? (Courtesy of Evan Thompson)
Charlie walks through the deserted
lobby of a federal building in Washington, D.C., and onto almost as deserted street with little food and no vehicular traffic
to a taxi that just "happens" to be at the curbside.

Chalrie's kids, Tommy and Iris, are
in his ofice when he comes in and announces that he has to leave them for a murder investigation. Iris says they don't
know where he's going and Tommy announces he knows how to gifure out where "Pop" is going. the next scene finds them
at the front door.
Whe did nayone have the opportunity
to electrify the closet door and do the remote switch or the magnetized gun set-up?
