The Aviator

"For some men, the sky was the limit. For him, it was just the beginning."

Young Hughes directs one of Scorsese's favorite films, Hell's Angels. Hughes was so obsessed with perfection in the aerial sequences that he waits forever for perfect conditions, right down to cloud formations. The Aviator ends in 1946, when Hughes was still a dashing young man and romancing actresses like Ava Gardner and Katharine Hepburn.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Jim Carrey was originally considered for the lead role as Howard Hughes.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): When Howard is in the hospital, Trippe sends a flower arrangement that contains Gerber Daisies. Gerber Daisies are a hybrid and were not bred until after the 1950s.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): When we see Sir Ian Holm sitting in the Hercules his head barely comes over the back of the seat. In reverse shots the head and shoulders of Professor Fitz are clearly visible - obviously a stand-in.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): The dialog places the scene where Hughes shows Frye and Gross the XF-11 on Christmas Night 1944, but the plane's insignia is of the post-World War II USAF, a red bar in the center of the white bar; it should have just the white bar. And the star on the left boom is pointing in the wrong direction.
