Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): When Edward parachutes down into the talent show and the Siamese Twin starts to sing, the camera actually is behind her as it cranes up to see Edward fighting in the fly space. You can see the back of the girl and she has no one attached to her - she is one person.
  • When Josephine asks for Ed Bloom's permission to take his picture she holds a cult rangefinder camera, the Leica M6.
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): SPOILER: Where the crowd gathers at the end of Edward's funeral, either Ping or Jing is seen talking in a small crowd, clearly separated from the other. As the camera pans to another crowd gathered in the foreground, the other Siamese twin is seen simultaneously. The twins were conjoined in Edward's tall tale, but when seen in real life they are ordinary identical twins. This scene was clearly meant to reveal this fact.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): After Jenny has thrown Edwards's shoes up on the wire Norther, Mildred and the mayor invite Edward to follow them by putting their hands on his shoulders. Mildred's hand is on Edward's back in the first shot, on his shoulder in the second one and again on his back in the following.
