Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The scenes at Dr. Berger's office were filmed with increasingly darker lighting to recreate the effect of it getting dark progressively earlier through the autumn.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When the car full of boys passes Jeannine making comments, they are traveling much faster than a person walks, but shown as being alongside her for much longer than a car at that speed would be beside a walking person.
  • Elizabeth McGovern was a student at Juilliard during filming. The school permitted her to do the film on the condition that she leave for Chicago each Friday night and return on Sunday, filming only on Saturdays. It was the first time Juilliard had ever permitted a student to make a film during a school term.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Karen and Conrad are at the restaurant, a glass leaps across the table repeatedly between shots.
