Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • So that the crew would not have to use CGI to "fake" the magical illusions seen in the movie, Norton received intensive training in sleight of hand and other stage magic techniques from British magician James Freedman (III) and American magician Ricky Jay.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): At the train station, the green trains have large, white, bold lettering in Helvetica, a font invented in 1957.
  • The love scene was entirely lit by kerosene lamps. By the end of each take, the small room was filled with smoke that it was hard to see.
  • Movie Goof (crew or equipment visible): In a scene in Leopold's office, the overhead light banks are clearly visible the top of the frame.
