Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When Bill The Butcher tells Boss Tweed about the streets that make up the Five Points, he names five. There were only three; two continuing through and one ending. Little Water and Mulberry Streets were nearby, but not at the intersection itself.
  • Martin Scorsese hired "The Magician", an Italian man famous for a 30-year career as a pickpocket, to teach Cameron Diaz about the art of picking pockets.
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): During the Draft Riots, a voice is heard speaking as though coming through a PA system. While it's true microphones were first developed in the 1870s as part of the telephone, and that those capable of being a loud PA system were not in regular use until the turn of the century, no actual PA system is ever actually seen; the odd-timbre'd voice begins when a telegraph is on-screen, meaning the words heard are those being sent over the telegraph, not actually shouted to the crowds during the riots.
  • SPOILER: Bill's last words, "I die a true American", were the last words of his true-life counterpart, Bill Poole.
