Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): James Brown in 1954/55 was not a headliner, and he didn't record and release "Please Please Please" with a great deal of planning - it was cut with a single mike in a very haphazard way.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When the street car pulls up to the school it is on the street but when Ben gets on it we see that the street car is in the woods.
  • Director Barry Levinson wanted someone with a Grace Kelly appeal to play the role of Dubbie the Blonde. Model Carolyn Murphy was cast, although she was ironically dubbed "The Blond Haired Gene Tierney" by Elle. She auditioned for the role after her agent encouraged her to do so, and unlike many other models turned actresses, she was praised for her work.
  • According to 'Barry Levinson', this film came out of a derogatory comment about Dustin Hoffman's character in Sphere. The critic's comment got Levinson thinking about his experiences growing up in Baltimore, and Liberty Heights was born.
