One of the famous film mistakes is this car driving into a narrow alley on two wheels (right side), and exiting on the left side wheels! The blunder is due to the fact, that the exit of the alley was filmed on location in Las Vegas and done by an American stunt team. Later the tilt in the alley onto two wheels was filmed in the backlot of the studio in Europe and the French stunt team was only able to do this on the right hand side wheels.
