Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The film was shot entirely in color and was intended to be released that way. It was decided during editing, however, that the movement between past and present could be made clearer by printing the scenes in 1947 in black and white. Branagh comments on the DVD that the costume and set designers were disappointed by this, because they would have used different colors for those scenes, which would photograph better in black and white, had they known this.
  • The number on Roman's prison uniform, 25101415, stands for "25 October 1415", the date of the Battle of Agincourt, fought by Henry V, subject of director Kenneth Branagh's previous film, Henry V. Branagh's birthday (December 10) is shown on the first newspaper clipping in the opening sequence.
  • SPOILER: Several hints at "Grace"'s true identity are revealed by references to scissors. When the actor-boyfriend tries to steal her away, the prescription bottle he offers as evidence is made out to "Katherine Pierce." "Grace"'s real name is later shown to be "Amanda Sharpe".
  • SPOILER: During the shooting of the final sequence, in which Mike Church (Kenneth Branagh) and Franklyn Madson (Derek Jacobi) are fighting, Kenneth Branagh had insisted to Derek Jacobi to make sure that he protect himself, during a moment when Madson is meant to have his head slammed into a shelf. Derek Jacobi was meant to put his hands under his head. Unfortunately, when it came to shoot the scene, Derek Jacobi didn't manage to and hit his head on the shelf, having a concussion for the next hour.
