Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): Despite Chris Thomas King being an actual blues guitarist, the scenes in which he is accompanying the Soggy Bottom Boys, his guitar playing is very obviously not in sync with the sound track.
  • The song "Man of Constant Sorrow" was first published in 1913 by the blind Richard Burnett. The song has since been recorded by The Stanley Brothers, Bob Dylan, Jerry Garcia and others.
  • There is a bust of Homer in the restaurant behind Pappy O'Daniel.
  • Movie Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): The group singing "Keep on the Sunny Side" at the rally is prominently accompanied by a Dobro (a resonator guitar) being played with a slide... but there is none to be seen. There are other people on stage, but it becomes clear that none of them has an instrument.
