Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • After the first week of shooting, 'Dan OBannon asked if he could attend the viewing of the dailies, and was somewhat staggered when Gordon Carroll refused him. To get past that ban, O'Bannon viewed the dailies by standing beside the projectionist whilst he screened them for everyone else.
  • DIRTRADE(Ridley Scott):[mothers]: The Nostromo's computer is named "Mother". The incubation of the alien has also been interpreted as a metaphor for pregnancy.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): Just before Ripley enters the Narcissus (shuttle), she is carrying Jones's carrier with the "window" to the front. The next shot shows her holding the carrier with the window to the rear.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): SPOILER: In the split second shot where the alien drives its tongue into Parker's head, you can see he is bald, but throughout the rest of the movie, he has hair. Also, in a freeze-frame of the shot you can see the alien tongue is white, not airbrushed like the rest of the creature.
