Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Michael Palin went on to found the London Centre for Stammering Children after a group of stutterers confronted him regarding the sensitivity with which he dealt with Ken's handicap in this film.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): The wedge that Ken shoots out of the pulley was inserted from the wrong side, so that the weight on the rope would have loosened it rather than it holding safely.
  • During the love scene, when Wanda opens up her blouse, Otto says in Italian "Ecco le due cupole del catedrale di Milano!" which translates "There are the two domes of the Milan cathedral."
  • Leach's daughter Portia is played by John Cleese's real-life daughter Cynthia Cleese, credited as Cynthia Caylor.
