Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): During his broadcast on April 4, 1968, Petye refers to James Brown as "The Godfather of Soul", a term not given to him until the early 1970s.
  • Terrence Howard was briefly attached to star as Petey Greene. He recommended Taraji P. Henson for the part of Vernell while the two were filming Hustle & Flow.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): In the opening scene, we see Petey Greene thumbing through a selection of vinyl records, eventually picking out the album 'It's A New Day - Let A Man Come In'. At this point in the film, it would appear that Petey is still in prison, however the James Brown album that he picks out was not released until June 1970. Moreover, the track played - 'It's A Man's Man's Man's World' - is a different version to that which appears on this 1970 album. Indeed, the version that is heard at the beginning of the film was not available commercially until the release of the 'Star Time' box set in 1991.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): Petey Green is hired to do a daily morning show when in reality, he only did a Sunday show on WOL.
