Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): During the scene were Easy is questioning Junior while Mouse is enjoying a plate of Pigtails, the music is the background is of Gospel Music Legend, James Cleveland. The setting is 1948, while the recording of Cleveland and the Angelic Choir singing, "Peace Be Still" was released in 1962. This style of Gospel music singing was still in it's pioneering days, thanks to Thomas Dorsey, during the late 40's and yet evolved into the style of singing that is featured in James Cleveland's much later arrangement of the hymn.
  • Movie Goof (plot holes): Easy has a telephone, which makes it very easy for him to communicate with various other characters in the movie. How does an unemployed black man in 1948 Los Angeles, who is two months behind on his mortgage payments, has other debts, and can barely afford a loaf of bread at 15¢, afford to keep up his payments on a telephone (still a fairly expensive luxury in 1948)?
  • ABC in 1998 was planning a pilot based on the film.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): When Easy gets paid by Albright the first time, the twenty dollar bills are not "Silver Certificate" twenties but "Federal Reserve Notes," which didn't come in until the '60s.
