Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Roy is sitting in his car waiting to meet Angela and about to give up and drive away, he has a cigarette in his mouth as seen through the windshield. In the next shot, as he is about to turn the keys to the ignition, he's holding the cigarette in his hand.
  • SPOILER: Although the major con at the end of the movie is in the novel, it was left out of the first drafts of the screenplay for fear that audiences would feel cheated if their hero was left penniless. At the suggestion of director Ridley Scott, however, the con was put back into the screenplay and the last "One Year Later" sequence was added as a wrap-up.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Angela first skates past Roy's car, the amount of ash on Roy's cigarette varies between shots.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): Roy listens to the Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass song "The Lonely Bull" on vinyl record. The track selection is cut two - on this album "The Lonely Bull" is the first track.
