Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): When Johnny & Baby first dance with the other staff, Otis Redding's "Love Man" is playing. The film takes place in 1963 but Redding didn't record the song until 1967 shortly before his death. In fact, "Love Man" was recorded in the same session as "Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay" and wasn't a hit until the following year.
  • Baby tells Johnny that her real name is "Frances, after the first woman in the cabinet." Frances C. Perkins was the U.S. Secretary of Labor from 1933 to 1947. She was appointed by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt during his first term, and served throughout all four of his terms and two years into Harry Truman's presidency.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): Size of the hole in Johnny's back window changes between shots.
  • In the scene where Johnny and Baby are practicing dancing, and she keeps laughing when he runs his arm down hers, it was not part of the scene, she was actually laughing and his frustration was genuine. They left it because it was effective. Her falling over in this scene was unplanned too.
