Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): At around the 20:17 mark, When Inspector Uhl is inspecting the props backstage, Eisenheim has his arms at his side during their conversation. Then suddenly he is facing the inspector at a different angle and his arms are crossed.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): At the train station, the green trains have large, white, bold lettering in Helvetica, a font invented in 1957.
  • SPOILER: The original story on which the movie is based does not include the artifice of the protagonist framing the Duke for murder. The protagonist gets away with a serious crime and yet is made to seem justified in this film.
  • Edward Norton did many of his own magic tricks, with the coaching of James Freedman (III). He worked with Norton preparing him for his stage performances and acted as a hand double in numerous situations.
