Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The musical version of the film, which hit the West End in 2005 to rave reviews and numerous awards and nominations, reportedly cost £5.5 million to make: around £3 million more than the film version. Furhermore, the Broadway production cost $18 million to make, over three times as much as the original film's budget. All three were a financial success.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): In the mobile library scene, several book spines are clearly visible, revealing titles published well after the 1984 setting of the film: Lisa Appignanesi wrote 'Memory and Desire' in 1991, Barbara Taylor Bradford wrote 'Hold the Dream' in 1985, and Shirlee Busbee wrote 'This Spanish Rose', 1986.
  • The first release from Working Title's low-budget WT2 division.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Jackie is on the bus taking him back to the mines, the strikers pull the protective cage off the window of the right side of the bus. Moments later when the bus pulls into the coal yard, all the windows on the right of the bus have the protective caging.
