Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): At the beginning of the movie, a modern TV antenna can be seen on the top of one of the houses. This is only visible in the Full Frame version; it gets cropped out of the original Wide Screen movie and the Wide Screen DVD version.
  • Movie Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): When Ralphie blurts out "Schwartz" and his mom calls Mrs. Schwartz, the voice of the kid receiving the spanking on other end of the phone is not Schwartz. If you listen closely, it is actually the voice of Flick (whose last name in real life is, coincidentally, Schwartz).
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): The little girl shown looking out the school window at Flick stuck to the flagpole was actually one of the last to leave her seat and head toward the window in the shot before.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): Ralphie's mid-1940s-era school class contains both white and African-American students. Indiana public schools were not officially integrated until 1949.
