L.A. Confidential

"Everything is suspect... Everyone is for sale... And nothing is what it seems."

Three detectives in the corrupt and brutal L.A. police force of the 1950s use differing methods to uncover a conspiracy behind the shotgun slayings of the patrons at an all-night diner in this lush tribute to tough film noir crime films. Based on the multi-layered James Ellroy novel.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Twice the project was pitched to television: first, producer David L. Wolper wanted to produce the project as a mini-series, and later, it was being developed as a weekly series by HBO. A pilot that starred Kiefer Sutherland was produced, but the series was not picked up afterwards.
  • Movie Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): In the scene outside the liquor store where Bud White confronts Buzz Meeks, the scene ends with White (who previously had disarmed Meeks) unloading Meeks' revolver and handing it back to him. When White unloads the revolver he spins the cylinder which makes a distinctive series of clicks, an audio effect often heard in films. However, only old style single action revolvers (the type seen in westerns) make this sound when their cylinders are spun. Spinning the cylinder on a modern double action revolver makes no sound whatsoever.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): SPOILER: Susan Lefferts is supposedly dead, yet her body has goosebumps.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): In the street scene after the kidnapped girl is rescued, a blue US Postal Service box is visible. Mailboxes were painted olive drab until the color scheme was changed to red, white and blue on July 4, 1955. The US Postal Service did not exist until 1971, when it replaced the U.S. Post Office Department. Prior to 1971, equipment, including trucks and mail boxes, were labeled "U.S. Mail".
