Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): In the scene where Norma and Arthur are sitting at the table talking about receiving the initial $100 Bill, Arthur says something like "...and you're sure this is real?" and holds it up to the light (as if checking for a security strip or micro printing). However, in 1991 The first new-age anti-counterfeiting measures were introduced under series 1990 with microscopic printing around Franklin's portrait and a metallic security strip on the left side of the bill. Since this movie is set in 1976, there would be no need to hold it to the light because the security strip did not exist yet.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): The license plats show 7 characters. In Virginia, in 1976, the auto license plates had larger letters/numbers & were always 3 letters with 3 numbers, also with a month sticker on the upper left with the year sticker in the upper right of the plate. Some of the cars in this movie show 7 number/letter combinations in a smaller "font" and with only a year sticker.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): After Norma's Father runs Arlington's license plate number, he refers to the vehicle as a "Town Car" but Lincoln did not come out with the "Town Car" until 1981. Up until then, and in the year this movie takes place, the use of "Town Car" was only used to denote a trim package on the Lincoln Continental. Someone referring to a Lincoln in 1976 as a "Town Car" would make no sense. It would be like describing a car as "sport package" or telling someone "It was a Ford 'Luxury Edition'".
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): (At 1:25:00) You can see the white dots used by the CG department to make the scar appear on Arlington Steward's face.
