Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • First English speaking movie debut for ex-soccer star Eric Cantona. It was rumored that both stars Christopher Eccleston and Angus Deayton actually wanted the producers to cast Cantona in a small French role in the film following his retirement from football in 1997 because: 1. Cantona began to study acting during his infamous 9 month ban in 1995. 2. Eccleston and Deayton were Manchester United fans themselves.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): SPOILER: In the scene where the priest returns to England bearing letters from Rome, he accuses Norfolk's man, Thomas Elliot, of betrayal, then grabs him and leads him in front of Norfolk off to the side (closer to the shore). As he beats Elliot to death with a rock, Norfolk watches from the side. When the priest is finished, and Elliot lies dead in the water, he is shown coming down from a greater height, several yards away, and behind Norfolk, rather than a few feet off to the side.
  • The costuming and shot composition of the coronation scene is based on Elizabeth's coronation portrait. For example, Elizabeth is shown wearing her hair long. This is historically accurate, as the real Elizabeth was giving the public a sign of her virginity.
  • Only one of three roles that actress Meryl Streep was turned down for.
