Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Garrison Keillor's first few drafts of the screenplay were - by his own admission - rather patchy. Altman's only notes on them were "you're getting closer". By the time filming began, Keillor was rewriting scenes constantly.
  • For insurance purposes, and in the event that 80-year-old director Robert Altman was unable to finish shooting the film, Paul Thomas Anderson was employed as a standby director.
  • The name for the character, Chuck Akers, comes from the name Garrison Keillor's friend Chet Atkins uses when he checks into hotel rooms
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): The group of four people sitting at the table in the diner react as if the Dangerous Woman is walking toward them (changing their facial expressions, changing their postures, moving their eyes, etc.), but in the next shot she has not moved from her position just inside the doorway. She then begins walking toward them.
