Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): Joyce Brabner comes by train from Delaware to Cleveland to meet Harvey Pekar in 1984. However, the Genesis engine shown pulling the train did not enter Amtrak's fleet until 1993, and the Amtrak logo on the engine is the post-Acela version (2000).
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): When Joyce Brabner is running through her personality disorder diagnoses, before she says her "delusions of grandeur" line, we see the phone and an open Fruit Cup near it. The scene is set in the 1980s, and the plastic fruit cups weren't on store shelves until the late-'90s or early 2000s.
  • The jacket that Paul Giamatti wears for Harvey's first "Late Night with David Letterman" (1982) appearance is the exact same piece of clothing that we see the real Harvey Pekar wearing on the TV.
  • CAMEO(Gary Dumm): longtime American Splendor artist is the gray-haired man getting his copy of "Our Cancer Year" autographed.
