Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope - I Can See the Pole!
This one is a little hard to spot. Having a TV with a very high image sharpness setting may help.
When you get to the scene where the Millennium Falcon is being pulled into the bay of the Death Star, watch near the bottom center of the bay opening. As the ship gets closer to the bay opening, you can slightly see coloration changes, and then the last half second before the scene change, you can vaguely see the outline of a pole holding up the ship. It's there in all three versions (Original, mid 90's redo, and late 90's redo), but is a little easier to see in the first two versions.

You are right. This is a mistake. If you have a copy of "The Making of Star Wars" (was made in like 1978, hosted by C-3P0 and R2-D2) you'll see this exact same footage but before the effects were added. The Millenium Falcon, the flourescent rectangle all against the blue screen. You can see the pole here not hidden of course. But what they neglected to pay attention to was that the light from the docking bay magnetic field generators is blocked by the model stand. Hence the vetical line below the Falcon in the film.
