Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Even though the filming schedule was pushed back a half year, Nicole Kidman never lost her faith in the project and instead prepared for the role, by touring the country with her family, riding horses and even castrating bulls.
  • Brandon Walters (II) was discovered by Baz Luhrmann, who had been searching for a young boy to play the important role of Nullah for over 12 months, through a series of nationwide radio call outs in Australia. After a series of workshops at Fox Studios Australia, Luhrmann and his team traveled to Broome and had the privilege of camping with Walter's family at 80 Mile Beach, WA. It was during this time that Luhrmann and the family decided they would take the leap and become involved in the film together.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): As the Japanese air-strike starts, a priest makes a transmission from Mission Island, and ends it with "over and out". The correct way to end it is saying "out", as "over" means you are giving the word to the person you are talking to.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): An Australian newspaper advertises The Wizard of Oz in a scene marked 1939. This film was not released in Australia until April 1940.
