Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (crew or equipment visible): At the beginning of the movie, we are looking through the eyes of Lump Hudson when a member of the other team approaches him. Before the ball is snapped, the crew is reflected in the other player's helmet.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Professor Dorr's orchestra "performs" both Renaissance and Rococo music. (The pivotal Luigi Boccherini recording is from the latter.) Although Dorr uses the terms interchangeably, the two styles are completely different, and separated by a span of about 150 years.
  • All the musical instruments were re-created by guitar maker Danny Ferrington (II), because, according to him, the owners of authentic antique instruments refused to lend them for the film. The strange "triple guitar" is a "theorbo," a guitar-like instrument played in late Renaissance and early Baroque music to accompany singing, provide color, and backup the Basso Continuo. Ferrington built it from scratch.
  • Throughout the film, Mrs. Munson says that she donates monthly to Bob Jones University, citing it as a "good Bible college". Bob Jones University banned black students until the 1970s, and did not allow interracial dating until 2000.
