Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • Ranked #51 on Entertainment Weekly's "100 New Movie Classics" list in 2008.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): In the bowling alley scene, Eli is clearly visible placing Daniel's refused drink above the center panel on the paneled divider. After the cutaway to Daniel, the drink is not above the center panel, but above the panel adjacent to the center one.
  • The fictional character of Daniel Plainview bears some resemblance to a real, early 20th-century California oil tycoon named Edward L. Doheny. Both were from Fond du Lac, Wisconsin; both were employed by Geological Survey and worked in Kansas; both tried a hand at mining before going into the oil business; and both worked with a fellow prospector named "H. B. Ailman." As for other Plainview-Doheny connections, the bowling alley scene in 'There Will Be Blood' was filmed at Greystone Manor, a California estate Doheny built as a present for his only son. Also interestingly, the infamous "milkshake speech" Plainview gives is based upon transcripts of congressional hearings concerning the Teapot Dome Scandal, in which the very same Edward L. Doheny had been accused of bribing a political official.
  • In the novel Oil, the characters Daniel and H.W. Plainview are based on are named J. Arnold Ross and J. "Bunny" Arnold Ross junior, respectively.
