Well, the word "mistake" sort of exists in Swedish too, in the form "misstag". But a take in a movie is called "tagning". So if the word originated from the movie industry, it would have been "misstagning", not "misstag", in Swedish. And I say that's another proof of that this is another fake etymology.
