Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (crew or equipment visible): The background footage for the model B-52's is filmed from a Boeing B-17G, whose shadow can be seen on the ground. See also Trivia.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): Typos in the opening captions include "Base on the book Red Alert by Peter George (III)", "ficticious" instead of "fictitious", and "occurence" instead of "occurrence".
  • Terry Southern was brought in as co-writer by Peter Sellers because Sellers was a big fan of Southern's novel The Magic Christian, which later became a Sellers film vehicle.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): De Sadesky says that the fallout from the doomsday device has a half-life of 93 years, but then he also says that the fallout would circle Earth for 93 years. This is a contradiction: half-life is the time it takes for radiation to be halved, not completely dissipated. It is common however for people to confuse these concepts, and the dissipation time for the fallout from a nuclear weapon salted with cobalt is indeed about a century.
