Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The main characters' initials spell ABRA (Alfred Borden Robert Angier), as in Abracadabra, a common word used by magicians.
  • Angier's double mumbles a few lines from a speech while rehearsing on stage before his first performance. What he's saying is actually the words of Harry Percy (Hotspur) from William Shakespeare's Henry IV, when called to appear before the king and explain his failure to turn over prisoners after a recent battle in Scotland. Apparently Hugh Jackman has used this speech in previous auditions. Presumably it was believed that having the double deliver a few lines from Shakespeare would lend him an actorly air, as his character is in fact a dissolute stage actor.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Julia frees herself from a cage full of water, only her hair is wet, but her clothes are dry.
  • Christopher Priest (II) created the "Langford Double Knot" for the original novel as a tribute to his friend and business partner, the author David Langford.
