Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Plenty of effort was expended creating lances that would splinter convincingly without taking out the stunt riders as well. The body of each lance was scored so it would break easily, and the tips were made of balsa wood. Each was also hollowed out, and the hole filled with balsa chips and (obviously uncooked) linguini to make convincing splinters.
  • Heath Ledger knocked out one of director Brian Helgeland's front teeth with a broomstick when the two were demonstrating a jousting move. It was several months before Helgeland's mouth had healed enough to repair the damage. He says it was the only jousting injury during filming.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Will is knighted, Geoff is sitting between Will and Edward in the normal shots and next to Roland and Wat in the overhead shots.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): In the parade over London Bridge Kate is to the right of William's horse in one shot, with other pages to her left, but in the next shot she is on the left next to the crowd.
