I don't know if you have read Stephen King's Danse Macabre, but in it he mentions two different classics where the authors made glaring mistakes. Dafoe in Robinson Crusoe has the main character strip nude to swim out to the ship wreck, then has him filling his pockets.
Then in the original Doctor Jekyl and Mr. Hyde, Mr. Hyde pushes through a crowd as three in the morning, which causes the crowd to gather outside Jekyl's townhouse to protest. As he commented himself, what was a crowd doing on the streets of London at 3 AM? Probably trying to figure out where Crusoe's pockets were...
