Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): After Mitch and Mickey are introduced during the concert, there is an overhead distant shot of the stage. Mitch can be seen nodding to the guitarist to his left, and the two begin strumming - but no music is heard. Mickey also begins playing and her lips don't move, but she is heard thanking the audience. It then cuts to a two-shot, and nobody is playing while Mickey continues talking to the audience.
  • John Michael Higgins wrote all of the vocal arrangements for The New Main Street Singers. Originally the group was going to be a nine-piece ensemble that sang in unison (everyone singing the same part) but it was decided to give Higgins free reign with it.
  • The early sequence in which the Folksmen rehearse for their reunion concert at a farm in upstate New York was inspired by the documentary The Weavers: Wasn't That a Time (1982), in which the real-life folk-music group The Weavers were shown preparing for a reunion concert at the upstate New York farm owned by one of their members, Pete Seeger.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When the New Main Street Singers are performing at the reunion concert, the only original member is playing with one foot on the ground and one on the rail of his stool. The foot on the ground and on the rail alternate between shots.
