Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): When Amelia asks Putnam to dance with her, music plays as soon as she turns the radio on. Radios of the era had vacuum tubes, which had to warm up before anything came from the speaker.
  • Gene Vidal (played by Ewan McGregor), who was widely assumed to have had a romantic relationship with Amelia Earhart as depicted in this movie, had only one child, Gore Vidal (played by William Cuddy). Gore eventually grew up to become quite a celebrity himself as a controversial but successful author, screenwriter and political activist.
  • Movie Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): In the scene when the "Friendship" is about to take off for the first time, we hear the sound of an engine firing and running up. At the same time we see the center engine just starting to turn over, and neither of the other two engines are running.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): When Amelia is signing the Lucky Strike endorsement, Putnam hands her what appears to be either a ball point pen or a mechanical pencil. Ball point pens were not in common use until the late 1930's. If this were a pencil, one would never sign a contract in pencil.
