Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Although Vonnegut's renown refrain, "So it goes", appears over 100 times in his novel, it does not occur, even once, in the movie version.
  • Sharon Gans was only six years older than Perry King, who played her son, and seven years older than Holly Near, who played her daughter.
  • The character of Howard Campbell Jr. appears in the film and speaks to the American P.O.W.s before the bombing of Dresden. Vonnegut wrote an entire novel about this character called "Mother Night", later made into a film by Keith Gordon starring Nick Nolte as this same character.
  • Kurt Vonnegut Jr., author of the book this film was adapted from, was a Prisoner of War in World War 2. He was captured during the Battle of the Bulge while a battalion scout with the 106 Infantry Division on December 22, 1944, and used these experiences in his novel when Billy Pilgrim is captured by the Germans and sent to a POW camp.
