Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): Towards the end of the movie when Uhl discovers the locket in the stable, it is without its chain. Later, when he is walking along the street and puts the locket in his pocket, it is on the gold chain. Later still, when Eisenheim returns the locket to Sophie it is on the string, as it was when he originally gave it to her as a young man.
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): When Inspector Uhl is investigating Eisenheim's latest illusion of summoning spirits, one of his aides shows an early turn-of-the-century movie projector portraying a color/sepia-based image of a person. Turn-of-the-century film was often hand-colorized using stencil methods. Georges Méliès's fantasy shorts used that method. Several genuine color film technologies were also in use by the early 1920's.
  • Movie Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): When Inspector Uhl finds Leopold to tell him of Sophie and Eisenheim's relationship, Leopold asks "What where they doing? Touching? Kissing? Fornicating?" His face is only shown when he says "fornicating", but he mouths a completely different word. (see Trivia)
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): At the train station, the green trains have large, white, bold lettering in Helvetica, a font invented in 1957.
