Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Elizabeth Reasers' Norwegian pronunciation was so bad that after Dagbladet (one of Norway's biggest news-papers) stumbled upon this film, they posted a clip from it with the title "What is she trying to say?"
  • Most of the Norwegian and German was not scripted, but made up by the actors during filming and is gibberish.
  • Dan Futterman was originally cast as Olaf, but by the time the movie was ready to shoot, Futterman was committed to Capote so he recommended Tim Guinee for the role.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): In several prominent scenes both on farmsteads and in the church, there is a farmer with a "Carhartt logo" on his work jacket. Although the Carhartt company made work clothes since 1889, in the 1920's they were mostly worn by railroad workers, not farmers. In addition, the "C" type logo was not used until much later.
