Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Cher was considered for the role of Barbara Rose.
  • In 1953, Alfred Newman composed and recorded the 20th Century Fox Fanfare "with Cinemascope extension". In 1989, his son, David Newman re-recorded the fanfare for "The War of the Roses" in order to have the last note of the fanfare segue seamlessly into the first note of the opening titles music.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): After Barbara runs over Oliver's car, we see a view from the left side of the crushed car. Then, after a shot of the dinner guests followed by a close-up of Barbara in the truck, there is a shot showing the front of the car, with steam suddenly rising from the engine. Since the car was not running, the engine would not have been hot, so there would have been no steam.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): When Barbara cartwheels down the stairs, the stairs are clearly flat, slanting downwards, making it easier for the stunt performer to perform the cartwheels. Additionally, they are standing on a curved staircase, but the stairs on which the stunt person does the cartwheels appear to be perfectly straight.
