Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The story was originally optioned by Frank Capra in 1949, who had hoped to cast Cary Grant and Elizabeth Taylor in what would essentially amount to being a variation on his Oscar-winning classic, It Happened One Night. However, Capra's Liberty Films production company was beset with financial problems and he was forced to sell the property to Paramount where a combination of political timidity (Capra discovered the involvement of blacklisted writer Dalton Trumbo) and a tight budget prompted him to withdraw from the project. William Wyler however had no compunctions whatsoever about working with Trumbo.
  • Paramount originally wanted to shoot this movie in Hollywood. William Wyler refused, insisting it must be shot on location. They finally agreed, but with a much lower budget. This meant the movie would now be in Black-n-White, not the expected Technicolor, and he would need to cast an unknown actress as the Princess - Audrey Hepburn.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When we see for the first time the truck where the princess is escaping the palace, there is a Cinzano box inside. But when Anne climbs into the back of the truck the brand "Cinzano" is not seen any more and another brand appears instead.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When the princess and Joe Bradley stand in front of the magistrate after the scooter incident, her blouse is dirty and so is her face. When they come out of the police station, her blouse is spotless and so is her face. She could conceivably have washed her face in the interim, but there would not have been an occasion in 1953 to clean and dry a blouse that quickly.
